2 cups chicken stock

2 cups orange juice 

2 cups pineapple juice 

1/2 cup brown sugar 

1/2 cup honey 

1 teaspoon ground allspice 

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon 

4 to 5 whole cloves 

2 to 3 tablespoons olive oil 

One 8- to 10-pound bone-in fully cooked smoked ham 


  1. For the glaze: Combine the chicken stock, orange juice, pineapple juice, brown sugar, honey, allspice, cinnamon and cloves in a medium saucepan and mix well. Reserve 1 cup of glaze mixture to add to the pot with the ham. Bring the remaining mixture to a boil then lower heat and simmer until reduced and thickened to a glaze, 15 to 20 minutes.
  2. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
  3. Heat the oil in a Dutch oven just large enough to hold the ham over high heat. Place the ham in the pot, flat-side down and cook until golden brown, about 2 minutes. Using 2 forks, turn the ham and brown on all sides. Arrange the ham flat-side down and add the reserved glaze mixture to the pot. Bake the ham in the oven until heated through, about 1 hour, basting the ham with the remaining thickened glaze every 15 minutes.
