HELP!! Too much ham!

Hi. I didn't have time to get back on the computer. Thank you for all of your help. I put 'Sam' in at 8am @ 325 on convection bake. It would've been ready in about 6 hours but dinner was at four so I just lowered the heat. I'm very happy to say everything was done on time and everyone wanted some leftovers....and there were plenty of leftovers. :-) Oh, and now I know that glaze for a 10 lb. ham is enough for a 24 pounder.
I would've sent you all some through the computer if I could. I hope you all enjoy the holidays and thank you again.

HELP!! Too much ham!

My butcher made a mistake and now I have a 24 lb. fresh ham. I've never cooked anything bigger than five pounds. My butcher said it would take about 5 hours to cook. How is that possible when it takes 2 hours to cook a 5 lb. ham? And how much glaze should I have ( I had enough for a ten pound that enough now)? I hope someone can help. This is my first time having Christmas dinner. My Mom passed away and I'm here holding the torch. I'm so mad at my butcher. I went over my order three separate times and asked them to check it when I picked it up. I even made a practice ham last week so when I got home and opened the bag to find that huge piece of meat.....ugh! Thanks for listening. And thank you for any help you can give me.
