Line a large pan with a lip around it with aluminum foil. Place ham in center of foil. In small bowl, stir together brown sugar, coke, and mustard to make your glaze. Brush half of glaze over ham. Wrap entire ham well in foil. Place in 350 degree oven for 2 -1/2 hours.
Remove ham from oven and peel back the foil but don't move the ham. Brush remaining glaze over ham and return to oven, uncovered, for another thirty minutes or until lightly browned. Allow to sit at room temperature for about ten minutes or so before cutting. If you need to serve it later you can cover it with foil to keep it warm and let it sit on your stovetop. I suggest cutting it within half an hour of removing it from the oven because that is about as long as you'll be able to stand waiting once you smell it.
