  1. Have the hock cut off ham so that it will fit into a roaster. Soak ham overnight in cold water and scrub the ham with a stiff brush. Change water a couple times to get rid of the excess salt.
  2. Mix sugar, bourbon and water; press into the fat of ham.
  3. Cover tightly with foil in roaster and bake at 200 degrees F for 8 hours.
