Remove skin from ham by cutting through the skin

While it is cooking, heat the apricot jam, spiced rum and bbq on medium heat.
Stir often for about 9 minutes or until thickened slightly.
Use half of the Apricot glaze over the ham brushing over the surface to evenly coat.

Brush glaze every 15 minutes for a further 1 hour or until ham is deep golden and sticky.
