PREHEAT oven to 325°F. Line a pan that is at least 2 inches deep with Reynolds Wrap® Heavy Duty Foil. Place ham in pan, cut side down, and tightly cover with foil.

COOK ham until meat thermometer reads 145°F, about 2 to 2 1/2 hours for an 8-pound ham.

PLACE hot sauce, sugar, lime juice and chipotle pepper flakes in a saucepan. Stir to combine. Cook, stirring often, until mixture comes to a boil. Remove from heat and keep covered until ready to use.

BRUSH ham with habanero glaze every 15 minutes during the last hour of baking. Remove from oven and discard foil. Let ham rest for 10 minutes.

COMBINE brown sugar, paprika, chipotle pepper flakes, garlic powder and chili lime salt.

TRANSFER ham to a serving dish. Evenly coat in finishing rub. Use toothpicks to skewer on jalapeno rings. Dress the plate with habaneros, jalapenos and roasted garlic.
