When I smoked mine, I smoked at my usual 225F to about 155 and ya know, that wasn't enough either. I broke mine down into parts and re-smoked them to 160 and after that second cook, put the bigger sections on my Globe slicer set to real thin and shaved the ham out. Now *that* way tasted KILLER!

just my two cents worth .. seattlepitboss
I'm hoping since I deboned mine the brine will get down inside and penetrate the meat better.
