Cooking a Pre-Cooked Ham in the Crock Pot

“I met a lady sorting through a bin of hams at the grocery store. I had missed those and she commented they were the best. They were smoked, mostly boneless, butt portions. Well, they were half the price of the sliced one I had in my basket, so I asked her how she cooked it. She wraps the ham in foil and cooks in the crock pot until done. The foil keeps the juices in, she said. So I tried it for Christmas Dinner. Superb.”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 6 lbs smoked ham
  • 12 cup pepper jelly (or favorite glaze)


  1. Score surface of the ham by lightly cutting the surface in a diamond pattern or criss-cross pattern.
  2. Trim the ham if necessary to fit the crock pot.
  3. Wrap in one piece of heavy duty foil.
  4. Place the ham, cut portion down in the crock pot.
  5. Cook on low for 6 to 8 hours until the internal temperature of the ham is 140°F
  6. Remove the foil and drain the juices.
  7. Brush with your favorite glaze or a pepper jelly. I like Pineapple Habenero pepper jelly.
  8. Return to crock pot and cook until the internal temperature is 150 to 160°F.
