Baked ham my way!

8-10 pound Spiral cut ham that is fully cooked  (I use  smoked ham)
1/2 cup of ginger ale
1/2 cup of orange juice
1/2 cup of firmly packed dark brown sugar
1/2 cup of pancake syrup (do not use lite syrup)
Preheat oven to 375
Place your ham once unwrapped in a large deep baking pan
Mix ginger ale and orange juice in medium size bowl, bake ham as directed for weight, basting often with this ginger ale and orange juice mix. 
Mix the brown sugar and pancake syrup together in a small mixing bowl, basting with this mixture the last 1/2 of baking.  Make sure the ham reaches 140 degrees.

I use ginger ale which is an old trick, it cuts the salty flavor from ham.

Cover ham with foil until last 1/2 of cooking time.
