Oven Baked Pulled Ham

Oven baked pulled ham cooks low and slow, and then shreds easily for sandwiches. Sweet, spicy barbecue sauce and BBQ rub provide plenty of flavor.
Makes:10 servings


  • 1 (6 to 8 pound) bone-in ham (not spiral sliced)
  • 2 Tablespoons whole grain mustard
  • 2 teaspoons liquid smoke
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar barbecue rub, or more to taste
  • 1 cup sweet and spicy barbecue sauce
  • 1/2 cup apricot preserves

  1. Preheat the oven to 275 degrees F (135 degrees C). Stir mustard and liquid smoke together in a small bowl. Rub mustard mixture evenly over ham and sprinkle barbecue rub all over. Place ham in a large disposable pan or large deep pan lined with foil. Cover with foil.
  2. Bake in the preheated oven for 2 hours.
  3. Remove pan from oven. Increase oven temperature to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C). Stir barbecue sauce and apricot preserves together in a bowl; pour mixture over ham and spread evenly. Cover with foil.
  4. Bake until a meat thermometer or instant-read thermometer inserted into the center of ham reads 205 degrees F (96 degrees C), 5 to 6 hours. Let stand until ham is cool enough to handle, 10 to 15 minutes. Shred ham with 2 forks and toss with pan drippings.
