Bourbon mixed with dark brown sugar and spices coats smoked ham in a sweet glaze. You can substitute apple juice for the bourbon, if you prefer.

Wrap ham in aluminum foil, and place in a lightly greased 13- x 9-inch pan; bake at 325° for 2 hours.
Remove ham from oven, and increase heat to 450°. Unwrap; discard foil. Remove skin and excess fat from ham. Score fat on ham in a diamond pattern and insert cloves at 1-inch intervals.
Stir together 1/4 cup bourbon, sugar, and mustard in a small bowl; set aside. Brush ham with remaining 1/2 cup bourbon. Pat sugar mixture evenly over ham; arrange orange slices over sugar and secure with wooden picks. Lightly baste with drippings; bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until sugar has melted and formed a glaze.
