What To Do:
A fully cooked ham has a layer of fat that we don't want to remove for two reasons: there's a lot of flavor in that layer and it'll keep your ham really moist.
So what do we do? We score it. That means we take a knife and actually score or cut the outside of the ham in a diagonal pattern, cutting it about 1/3 of an inch deep. Next we place it in a roasting pan and cook it for 15 to 20 minutes a pound. The diamond pattern will open up and get crispy. That means the fat melted and basted our ham. And when we slather on our glaze, the grooves from scoring help the glaze to keep from dripping off, making our ham extra flavorful.
