I was in charge of bringing the ham (for those who wouldn't eat pork) and I headed out yesterday morning to Publix to buy fresh ham. I figured that with 2 pork shoulders my dad was grilling, a smaller ham would work just fine. I found a 10 lb. fresh shank that looked decent to my untrained eye (yes, my mom asked me to bring a ham for 20 people and I've never cooked a ham before) and grabbed a bottle of cola for cooking the ham.
