Can i inject a spiral sliced ham? I was thinking of doing it while it was in the cryo pak and letting it sit over night.

Yea you can inject it the only possible issue I see is you may lose some of the injection out of the spiral cuts but oh well. Do like was mentioned above and inject it while it is still in the package. Just poke your injector needle through the packaging.
Ok. I injected it yesterday while it was in the package. I used 12oz pineapple juice and brown sugar. I put it in a pan and into the fridge over night. There was some juice in the pan and some in the bag when I removed it but not as much as I thought there would be. Put Jeff's rub on it and will put it in the smoker in a bit. I'm gonna put a brown sugar, honey, and butter glaze on it. I've also got a turkey going today. We're doing thanksgiving at my parents today.
Here's the final product. The ham was amazing and stole the show at dinner. Not sure if the injection made much of an impact. The glaze was awesome. I heated 2 cups honey, 2 cups dark brown sugar, and 3 sticks of butter. The turkey was good and moist but the ham definitely was the favorite.
