Well, I made the ham in the Nesco Roaster and it turned out great. Covered it with sliced pineapple, wrapped it up in foil nice and tight. I added some water to the pan and roasted it for 2 1/2 hours at 325 degrees. The ham just really needed to be heated through. No dried out areas, so Thank You so much for the great ideas. For sure when I bake another spiral ham I'll be putting the slice side down, sounds like it was a good idea and one I haven't tried.
