I have never made  Picnic Ham, it was actually quite by accident, I was planning on a completely different cut of ham but accidentally purchased this cut instead, but quite happy I got this one as it was one of the most moist tender cuts of ham I’ve ever purchased!

Notes

Be sure to check the temperature before eating and if you pick a larger ham you may need to cook a bit longer. I used a 7 quart crock-pot for my picnic ham and it “barely” was tall enough. With it being a bone in, you don’t have much wiggle room!
