Slow Cooker Maple Ham

We had this over the weekend and my family really enjoyed it.  I had a 4 1/2 lb spiral ham and probably cooked it too long for my tastes.  So if you get a smaller piece of meat, just check it after 5 hours on low.

Slow Cooker Maple Ham (From Crockpot365 Blog)
(since I used a smaller cut, I halved the ingredients)

7-8 pound bone-in spiral-cut ham
1 cup dark brown sugar
1/2 cup all natural maple syrup
2 cups pineapple juice

*Use a 6-7 quart slow cooker. Unwrap the ham, and discard flavor packet. Place it into your stoneware, flat-side down. Rub brown sugar on all sides. Pour on maple syrup and pineapple juice. Cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours. If possible, baste ham with collected juice from the bottom of the crock an hour or so before serving. When cooking is done, remove carefully and let it rest on a cutting board for 15-20 minutes before carving.
