Urgent question about cooking ham

Tomorrow we have to pick our son up at the airport which is a two hour minimum drive in each direction and almost always is longer, especially awaiting the ferry.

I was planning on having a hickory smoked shank half of ham dinner, but I fear if his flight is late and/or with the holiday the ferry line is a long wait, we won't get home in time to cook the 10 pound ham for the requisite 2.5 hours and still have dinner at a reasonable hour.

I do have an oven that is quite reliable in setting the time ahead to turn on and off and I often use that feature for made ahead cassaroles when we go to early evening exercise classes and want dinner ready when we get home at 7:15pm.

So - with the errands we need to do on the mainland, we need to leave home by about 8 am tomorrow and I am wondering if I put the ham in the oven, and set the oven to turn on at 4 pm so we can have dinner between 6:30 and 7 pm, whether the ham might spoil in those 8 hours of not being refrigerated.

Does anyone know?

Babette, Do you have a neighbor or close fried who could come by, take it out of the frig, and put it in the oven for you? To me, that would seem the best idea. Sorry, I wish I had a better idea...

Yes, I would ask a neighbor to come in, or have something else for dinner, or stop and eat dinner on the way home, if possible. If something really delayed you for whatever reason, you would have a ham in the oven for a very long time, just sitting there. Car trouble or something can mess up a plan for a nice, big, ham dinner. Just make a stir fry

That's what I am doing. The ham is now in the oven. Thanx, Gladys.

I don't know why I didn't think of that....

Begete-

You got your answer, but just FYI - a smoked ham is cured and won't spoil in that amount of time. Most are already pre-cooked.
