      Wow is this good! I had a smoked pork shoulder, 5 1/2 pounds. Gave it 3 hours in the pot with the cola. I can't even say how EASY this is to make. It only takes 10 minutes in the oven, how easy is that? But please cover your pan with foil! The juice does get very dark and sticky in the bottom of the pan. But the ham is juicy, tender, and delicious! My husband doesn't want ham cooked any other way now. Thanks Friedel!

      This sounds strange (Possibly awful) but the end result is delicious! I usually add some cloves a cinnamon stick and black peppercorns to the pot. Top the pot with some water to cover the ham if requited. I glaze with dijon mustard and brown sugar if the ham lasts long enough to glaze !

      I liked this method. I am not a fan of Coca Cola and so was skeptical, but it really turned out well. I also enjoy the variation of using Cherry coke as in her cookbook Feast. I don't feel that on an ordinary occasion the glaze is necessary, but I am lazy. Speaking of which, the ease of this recipe is probably it's greatest attribute.
