I am making a recipe this evening that calls for using a smoked ham hock. Do you leave the skin on, or do you remove it?

Leave it on (assuming you mean it's going in the pot to flavor a pot of soup or greens or beans or something along those lines.)

Yes, leave it on. It will produce a fair amount of fat that you may want to skim off.
