Was the Ham everything you thought it would be taste wise? Since you hammered into right away How was the outer layer of goodness? Salty, Sweet, Delicious?

I was surprised that it wasn't more smokey considering 8 hrs of Hickory. I did FTC it for about 3 hours before cutting in to it. It wasn't too salty. I don't like country ham so this was just right as far as salt taste. Yes it is delicious. As I said this was a test run for Christmas. Afer one bite the wife's comment was " This is definitely what we are having for Christmas".
Thanks again for all the help.

Really a great looking ham Gus.  I'm glad your practice session turned out good.  Looks like you're all set for Christmas.

Gus can't go wrong. He has corporate approval. Momma is probably Bragging him up at work this morning.
