Ingredients:  
One ham - water added brick shaped or a good bone-in center cut (never had much luck with a shoulder cut - to grisly)
- About two cups of red wine - dark like shariz or merlot (drinking quality - never use wine for cooking that you wouldn't drink)
- About two cups of pineapple juice (medium sized if you can find it)
About two cups bottle or can of drinkable beer
Some brown sugar
Some cloves

Directions:
Directions:
Prepare 24 hours before using.
-Rinse off ham and gently score with a knife of poke with fork enough to ensure that fluids can soak in.
Put into a glass dish or get a good sized aluminum pan at the store.
- First pour some wine, beer, and pineapple juice in the bottom of the pan. Place in the ham and then (here's your choice - rub some brown sugar over the ham before placing in the pan)
- Then pour rest of beer, wine and pineapple juice over the ham and let it sit over night - turning it every so often
- When ready to cook, drain off about 2/3rds of the liquid and keep for adding to ham as it cooks and cover with an aluminum hood.
- Place in some cloves at this time.
- About 20 minutes before done, put on your choice of orange or peach jam and pineapple rings if you like. Secret is to keep the ham moist - kind of steaming with the mixture. Cook at the recommended time and temp as the ham instructions
