If I am heating a fully cooked ham that directs me to cook at 325 degrees F for 20 minutes per pound (ham is 3.38#) and I want to heat it through at a 200 degree F temp. How long should I put the ham in the oven for?

    Why do you want to heat it at 200? That's really low, to the point that it seems likely to stay at an unsafe temperature for quite a while. – Cascabel Jan 1 '17 at 19:38
  • Hello, and welcome to Stack Exchange. Do you mean that you want the final temp to be 200°F, or the oven temp would be 200°F? – Daniel Griscom Jan 1 '17 at 20:09
  • @Jefromi Why unsafe? It's already fully cooked. Slow cookers and some slow roasting dishes can be prepared at even lower temperatures. – Robert Jan 1 '17 at 20:49

    @Robert Safely cooked food can still become unsafe if held long enough in the danger zone. It presumably takes quite a while for 200F air to get a refrigerated or room temperature ham above 140F. I'm not saying it's definitely unsafe, just that it's headed in that direction, so it's worth asking what the goal is. (And sure, slow cookers do hold below boiling like that, but the idea is to get up to that temperature reasonably quickly.) – Cascabel Jan 1 '17 at 21:45

Not knowing what kind of oven you have or what cut the ham is, bone in or bone out etc., I would recommend that you simply buy an inexpensive meat thermometer (less than $10 in most places) and check the ham's internal temperature every two hours or so.

Glaze the Ham. Put in oven at 170f at 9pm. Turn heat up to 350f at 5 am. Let brown. Remove & have some for breakfast. At 6am nice & hot.

Place ham on a rack in a shallow uncovered pan with the fat side (skin side) up so the ham will baste itself. 6) Roasting time is 30 minutes per pound of ham at 200 Degrees F. However it is recommended to use a meat thermometer and cook until the internal temperature reaches 155 Degrees.
