How To Know When Ham Is Done
Spiral hams are fully cooked hams. The key to cooking your ham is to make sure it gets heated and warmed through. You want to get an internal temperature of 140-145 degrees. You can use a meat thermometer to check to ensure the ham reaches the proper temperature.
Once your ham is warmed all the way through you can plate it up and then serve.
You can cook your ham in the oven or even on a pellet grill outdoors where you can maintain the proper temperature to cook your ham.
