oh guys this thing was awesome
 sorry i didn't/couldn't get any pictures....it was a store bought 10.93lb fully cooked skinless hickory smoked half ham with bone to start with and i sliced it every 1/2" in a criss cross pattern bout 3/8" deep....even though i did it in the oven at 350 degrees basting it every 15 minutes with a turkey baster for the first 1.5 hours untill the glaze was gone from the pot i made it in....then covered it with the roasting pan lid untill it hit 145 internal temp basting every 30 minutes with the pan drippings....it got nice and dark brown almost like it came out of my smoker that went bout 1/2" deep into the ham....i can't even describe the flavor it was sooo darn good and was something i never tasted before....this is going on my next set of ribs and even a pulled pork in my smoker
 ....i think i stumbled onto something here........bob

oh yeah i started with bout 3/4" of spring water in the roasting pan so it didn't get smokey when it was cooking....i still had a hard molasses coating on the bottom of the pan....so you might want to use an alum pan and just toss it afterwards, my roasting pan cleaned up easy enough after it went in the oven with bout an inch of water for bout 45 minutes.........bob
