  • Yields: 8 Servings


Essential Tools

Heavy-duty aluminum foil


1 (7- to 8-pound) spiral sliced bone-in half ham

½ cup water

1 cup apple juice

⅔ cup brown sugar

½ cup Dijon mustard

¼ cup honey

3 Tbsp fresh lemon juice

2 Tbsp Three Little Pig's Kansas City Sweet BBQ Rub

1 tsp chopped fresh thyme



1Preheat oven to 300°F. In a large baking dish, add the ham and water. Cover tightly with heavy-duty aluminum foil. Place the baking dish in the oven, and bake for 2 hours 40 minutes or until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the ham reaches 165°F.

2In a medium saucepot, whisk the apple juice, brown sugar, mustard, honey, fresh lemon juice, Three Little Pigs Kansas City Sweet BBQ Rub and thyme. Heat to boiling over medium-high heat and boil for 5 minutes, whisking occasionally; remove from heat.

3Increase oven temperature to 400°F. Remove foil from the ham. Evenly pour the glaze over ham. Bake ham, uncovered, 15 minutes longer. Transfer ham to a serving platter.


  • Serve ham drizzled with any drippings remaining in the baking dish.
  • Here are a couple of ideas for leftover ham:
    • Ham, Mac ’n Cheese -- Add chopped ham to your favorite boxed mac and cheese mix or homemade macaroni and cheese recipe. Toss in some peas for added color and flavor.
    • Grilled Ham and Cheese -- Add some protein to your grilled cheese sandwich with rye bread, Swiss cheese and coarse ground mustard.
