Im doing a fresh ham on friday, any suggestion, cook time thanks


  • If you want it to be a "ham" (meaning cured) I think it is too late for a cure....If you want to cook it for Christmas, what you have is a pork roast, not that this is all bad, but I don't think it can become a ham in four days. Sorry.
    As for a cook time.
    This roast (in my mind) should temp. out at least 145 to 160 F. And, as a rule of thumb ONLY, will cook about 15 to 20 minutes / lb. at 325 F. A bit of a low and slow.....
    I take my Butts to 200 F. but that is for a pulled meat. With your leaner cut, I'm thinking that your roast will slice up moist and tender in that Med. to Med. Well range.
    Hey LC...If you're reading....Any input on that?
