  3. Cook in oven for 50-60 minutes while basting your double wood smoked leg ham every 10 minutes with the glaze and juice in the bottom of the pan.
  4. If the glaze is getting to sticky add a touch of water to thin it very slightly.
  5. in the last 5 minutes of cooking baste the ham one last time and give your oven a quick blast at 190-200º. keep an eye it can burn quickly at this stage. 
  6. Serve and enjoy.
