How Long to Bake a Ham at 250 Degrees
The bake time for a ham at 250 degrees will vary depending on the size of your ham, but you should plan on around two hours. The general rule of thumb is to bake ham at 250 degrees for 15 minutes per pound. When you cook a ham at 250 degrees, the low temperature will help to keep the meat from drying out on the outside before it's heated on the inside. If you're making a honey-baked ham, you'll want to crank up the oven to 400 degrees at the end and give the ham about 15 minutes more to cook, just long enough to bake on the glaze. Your finished ham should reach an internal temperature of at least 140 degrees if the ham was precooked or 145 degrees if you started with a raw ham.
