You are supposed to glaze the ham before cooking, not the butcher block!

The only thing you have to put a butcher block is linseed oil, light sanding with a 120 grit and then apply oil to block, to be done every 3 months or so for the first year and then every 6 months after.

These are all our opinions. The first question to ask is why he used the glaze.
That is one huge butcher block. I assume it wasn't endgrain exposed!
