Line a baking dish with foil. I used a 9x9 but it really depends on the size of your ham. Put the ham, fat side up, in the pan.

Pour the liquid mixture over the ham. It will pool in the bottom. That's ok.

Cover  the top with foil so that it is sealed around the edges. It will dry out if not sealed. You can start with a cold oven.  Cook on 250 for about 9 to 10 hours. A little longer wont hurt it

What you get is an amazingly moist, fall off the bone, ham. (Sorry that it looks like scavengers have devoured most of it. I forgot to take a pic before lunch :) ) I will never fix ham any other way.
