You are just full of surprises aren't you. First its blue potatoes, then it's plans to graft trees and now you want to make a ham. More energy than I have in a week.
I think if I were to do this, which I never, and if I did, I 'd leave the bone in, which is also a personal preference. I would tie it back up for smokng.
Here's some nice pics from another website of a recent smoked ham s/he did to give us all something to wet our whistles.
Ham & Pickle Sandwiches
I don't know, but where's the part where a ham has to hang for some months to cure in cool rafters and then you put it in a wash tub and scrub it and trim the outer fat and then it finally gets baked. I think it gets brined and smoked first? Well, I only know the part you look for a good ham, score it and put in some whole cloves in diamonds and make a nice basting sauce. Eat. Best of good luck with your project and I hope you share some pics along the way.
