How long and at what temperature do I need to cook a 13.5 pound ham?

Rating: 100

Bake in an oven set to 325 F. For a whole 10-15 pound ham, allow 18-20 minutes per pound. Cook until internal temperature reaches 160 F. If this is a country cured ham, it would be best to desalt by soaking 12 hours, allowing 1 quart of water to 1 pound of cured meat.
