Too much salt left on for too long, using TQ or enhanced pork all can cause a hammy flavor. My guess is just that they associate smoke with ham though. They have probably only had smoked ham. That is why folks claim that turkey tastes hammy when smoked. Pretty hard to make bird taste like pig, but that is what they associate with the flavor of ham.
