That's what I got as well. I am trying to replicate a boiled ham for my wife. From my research it seems that they are brined and then steeped in water at 170 degrees until they are cooked. So in reality they are not ever boiled. I have started a brine for my ham and plan to give it a short hot smoke. From there I am not sure what I want to do. I left the skin on in the brine because I want a crispy skin bark, but putting it in water afterwards will turn the skin into rubber bands. LOL I say Tomato she says potato
