In a medium bowl, mix the marmalade, maple syrup, mustard, bourbon or rum, and lemon juice. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
Position a rack in the lower third of the oven and heat the oven to 325°F. Brush the ham all over with 1/2 cup of the glaze and wrap loosely in foil. Put it on a large rimmed baking sheet and bake until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the center of the ham registers 125°F, 17 to 19 minutes per pound, for a total of 2-1/4 to 2-3/4 hours. (The ham will continue to rise in temperature during the glazing and resting.) Remove the ham from the oven and raise the oven temperature to 425°F. Peel back the foil from the top and sides of the ham; brush the ham with 6 Tbs. of the glaze and return it to the oven. Bake, brushing the ham again after 5 and then 10 minutes, using 6 Tbs. more glaze each time, until the glaze is shiny and golden, about 20 minutes total (keep a close eye on the ham so that the glaze doesn’t burn).
Remove the ham from the oven and tent loosely with foil. Let rest at least 20 minutes and up to 2 hours before slicing.
Orange-maple mustard: Reserve 3 Tbs. of the marmalade mixture from the Bourbon-Orange-Glazed Ham recipe and mix with 1 cup of grainy mustard.

I would give this recipe ten stars if it was possible. I baked this ham for christmas last year and it was the best ham I ever ate. Everybody loved it. I will make it again for thanksgiving this year.
I made this ham for Christmas and it is the best ham I've made in my whole life. Everybody loved it and asked for seconds. I added water and basted the ham under the broiler for the last 20 minutes in the oven, which made a lot of drippings to serve with the ham and made it caramelize nicely. Thanks for the great recipe!
Made it as per recipe and it was absolutely fabulous!!!! Everyone loved it! Making it again for Christmas!!!
