What do I do with this smoked, but uncured, ham?

Hola MeFi!, I have acquired a ham which is smoked but uncured. I am going to roast it in time for 6 PM tomorrow. Can I just run the usual glaze 'n baste routine? Or because this fella is un-cured, is he gonna need some special love between then and now?

Salty thinly sliced delicious-ness

Where do I buy country ham on the internet? What type of country ham am I looking for? I've been watching Mind of a Chef on Netflix, and they show this dry aged ham that hangs out in the open air, and then the chef slices it ever, so, thinly, yumm, and you don't need to cook it further. You just eat it with breakfast. (Kind of like prosciutto?) [more inside]

Skip the cloves, please.

I recently heard that there are new procedures to break up scar tissue that are akin to scoring the surface of a ham, i.e. cross-hatched for max flexibility. I've had an immovable band of scar tissue around my elbow for 15 years that prevents my arm from extending fully, and I'd like to look into this procedure. My google-fu is weak (no, I DON'T need another search result for the Chili Peppers song) -- do you know what it's being called by doctors? Thank you!

What do you listen to on your amateur radio or scanner?

Having just earned my amateur radio license, I've purchased a handheld transceiver with decent wide-band coverage and I'm trying to figure out what I should program into it. I've added the nearest repeaters on my licensed bands, but what's worthwhile to add next? What else do people program on their mobiles, HTs, and scanners? I'd like to find active and interesting channels to monitor when I'm not conversing with someone myself. [more inside]

You ARE My Country Ham Doctor!

We have two delicious 17 lb. direct-from-the-farm country hams to do up for our wedding in June, and are seeking advice on best ways to prepare them. Hams are frozen, cured, with hocks already taken out, and with the rind left on. Suggestions? Tips? Tricks? Glazing options?

Almost Heavenly Ham?

Family is clamoring for "Heavenly Ham" for Christmas this year but the price per pound in our area is cost prohibitive. The few times I've tried to make the supermarket substitutes have been disappointing to say the least. Is there a secret to making a good spiral ham at home? If so, what do you look for on the label including the average price this time of year? There is wide range for these and I want to do what you're doing.

How do I find an obscure WWII technical manual?

I recently inherited a 1940s era communications receiver from the estate of my great-uncle. It is a Hallicrafters S-39 Sky Ranger, and I want to restore it so it can be used safely again. I was able to find the manual that originally came with it on BAMA (The Boat Anchor Manual Archive), but it was also used by the US Military during WWII, and there is a govt service manual for it. It was an R80 to the military, and the manual is PB48233, but that is as far as I have been able to get. How do I locate someplace that has a copy of this technical manual so I can get a copy made from it?

Can I still eat the ham?

Can I eat ham that wasn't properly refrigerated? I got a fully cooked ham from my employer, put it out in my car trunk during the day, and forgot about it when I got home. Over the next few days, I didn't remember it at all. The whole time it was refrigerator temperature outside, and the trunk of my car was probably the same temperature. All that changed when I had a freak 60 degree day on Friday, and then it was back to being 20 outside. I remembered the ham last night as I was putting something else in my trunk. Did that 60 degree day ruin my chance of eating the ham?

Is it safe an/or legal to bring a Virginia ham to the Philippines from the US?

Going home to Manila for Christmas, and Mom just emailed, asking me to bring along an entire fricking leg of Virginia Ham. I've checked the State Dept site and the US Embassy in Manila for regulations on bringing in food, but I'm running into dead links. Plus, I'm flying Emirates, with an overnight layover in Dubai. The ham should fit in my bags, well within the weight allowance, but is it safe and legal?
