My mom makes this and I think it is very good. From her Gooseberry Patch Country Quick and Easy.


  1. Put the ham in a 6 quart slow cooker.
  2. Pour the root beer over the ham until covered.
  3. Cover and cook on LOW for 3-4 hours.

This is fantastic! I used a little turkey ham, it smelled great all day. SO easy and my picky fiance loved it too, thanks!

I made this last nite using Barq's (it has bite - too much actually) root beer, and a Cook's butt portion ham. Since it was partially cooked, I put the cooker on High instead of Low, and it took 5 hours for about a 5-6 lb. ham. SOOO EASY!!! Turned out juicy and awesome tasting. Just think I'll use a different root beer next time, we really could taste it. OR, might even try it with ginger ale, with perhaps some pineapple slices on the bottom, cloves in ham. :9 But again, it was SO incredibly easy (just my style!) and easy cleanup too. :) I told my family I hope they don't get sick of ham (my fave), because I'm going to be making this often! The ONLY way to cook a ham, IMO. :)

This turned out well - it's a great way to cook a ham without using the oven, and it turned out really juicy. We were unable to taste the root beer, but it was still a good ham. It was easy to do and a quick clean up as well. Thank you!
