HELP! Ham Dilema for Christmas Eve

jinet12 | Dec 21, 2008 10:21 PM

I have never cooked a ham, but my cousin brought one for Thanksgiving that was a fully cooked spiral ham, that he cooked in his crockpot. It was wonderful. He did not give and actual recipe, but said that he cooked it for a long time in his crockpot, and used Coke, and the packet of sauce that the ham came with, and some brown sugar and pineapple and mustard...Questions...I have a large crockpot, but what if the ham is too large to go in? Could I cut it in pieces to fit? Also, do you marinate the night before in Coke? How does the glaze stay on the ham if there is coke poured over it? Help...My Mother whose oven is on the blink, bought this ham at Sam's today, so I don't know how big it is, and I am being volunteered to make it in the crockpot as he did..ANY help would be appreciated, as there are high hopes from my family that this will be at least if not MORE delicious that my cousin's because they think that I am a culinary genius, but I have never cooked or seen anyone cook a Coco Cola ham in the slowcooker! My Mom wants to slice it and serve on little rolls for sandwiches....
