and can you take a ham straight from the brine to the oven, and bypass the smoker? and what would that effect be?

 

 



Initially cook it in the smoker to an internal temp of minimum 146° throughout for fully cooked (150° or higher to be safe).  Then, once chilled after initial meal, reheat to minimum 135° in the oven or in the smoker to re-serve, or slice and fry, bake a slice, etc.

 

You could take it from the brine to the oven and bypass smoking, you'd have pickled cooked pork with no smoke flavor, much like pickled pig hocks in a jar.  For true ham flavor, you'd be best served smoking it.
