So here it is: the giant fresh ham. It did end up being a shank piece (I had questioned that over in the forums). For whatever reason. it was completely cooked after three hours and 30 minutes, not the four to four and 1/2 hours suggested in the recipe. Everyone liked this--after everyone took what they wanted for leftovers, I have just enough left to squeak out the other two fresh ham recipes in half quantities. The fatty parts were definitely the favorite pieces for everyone at the table.
I did not have a chance to get a photo of the sliced ham, everyone was too eager to eat!
