This honey-coated ham for a crowd gets an extra kick from a patting of chili powder.

1 cooked smoked bone-in ham (8 lb)

3/4 cup honey

1 cup packed dark brown sugar

1 teaspoon chili powder

1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

1/2 teaspoon ground mustard

1/2 teaspoon ground red pepper (cayenne)

1.Heat oven to 325°F. Line roasting pan with foil.

2.Remove skin from ham; trim fat to 1/4-inch thickness. Make shallow cuts in fat at 1-inch intervals in diamond pattern. Place ham in roasting pan. Insert ovenproof meat thermometer so tip is in thickest part of ham and does not touch bone or rest in fat. Bake uncovered 1 hour 30 minutes.

3.Brush ham with honey. In small bowl, mix remaining ingredients; pat mixture over honey.

4.Bake 35 to 45 minutes longer or until thermometer reads 140°F. (Cover loosely with foil if necessary to prevent excessive browning.) Cover; let stand 15 minutes before carving.
