- Remove the ham from the refrigerator and set it aside for 1 hour to reach room temperature.
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Place a rack in a big roasting pan and cover it with foil. Place the ham on the foil on the rack and pour 2 cups of water in the bottom of the roasting pan.
- Combine the jam, brown sugar, bourbon, Dijon, and red pepper flakes in a small mixing basin. Brush the ham with some glazes and roast it for 12 to 2 hours, basting every 30 minutes with more glaze until an instant-read thermometer inserted in the thickest section reads 140°.
- Allow 15 minutes for resting before cutting.
