Pre cooked ham is easy all your doing is heating it up while applying smoke,

 160° is fine 165° won't hurt. try mixing a little pinapple or orange juice w/ the brown sugar to make a paste and apply this to the ham b4 smoking

I just did one and put a glaze on it that was awesome. It was 2 cups brown sugar, 2 cups honey, and a stick of butter. Heat those together and glaze the ham about every 30-45 minutes.

 Boy, does that sound tasty and decadent! Like the pineapple juice idea, too. Lotta good ideas on this one! I also like to add a vanilla bead (split & scraped) to my glaze. Mine has a bit of dijon, apple or currant jelly and reduced champagne.  But I really like what the vanilla adds.

Pre-Cooked Ham - A ham that has been heated during some part of the processing to an internal temperature exceeding 137°F but less than 148° F. Most commercially processed hams are heated to a temperature of 140° F. Temperatures reaching 137° F will kill the trichina parasite. A partially cooked ham still requires additional cooking prior to eating. It must be heated to an internal temperature of 160° F. 
I would go more 155, then wrap in foil for 1/2 hour.

All great advice above. One thing that I like is poking whole cloves all around the outside about 2" apart, something I grew up with and still love.
