Cooking time for two 4-5 lb bone in cured hams...

I am cooking two 4-5 lb bone in cured hams this weekend for one meal. My thought is to adjust the cooking time as if I am cooking one 4-5 lb ham...but increase the time to cook slightly as having two hams in the oven may take longer. Any thoughts or suggestions on this?

You're on the right track! Spec out the times like you're cooking just one, and start to check on them when one would normally be done. It may take a tad longer with two in the oven, but not too much!
