    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.

    but I would go no more than 150º

    Internal Temp of 160 . Thanks.

    I am using a mix of 1/3 apple to 2/3 hickory. I will do Q-View of finished product.

    Ok, you've confused me. Are you saying that for safety it must be cooked to an internal temp of 160, but then ignore that and only go to 150?

    Yes, the first part of my post was a quote. Sorry. I just found 160º for a pre-cooked was too dry for my taste. So I would go only 150º
