Spiral Cut ham

For Christmas I was going to do Alton Brown's City Ham on the egg (which I highly recommend!), but before I could get to the store to pick up the ham my mother in law thought it would be nice to get the ham for me instead. She bought me a spiral cut and need a way to cook it on the egg. Any suggestions? I'm afraid with all the cuts (increased surface areas) will produce a dry ham. Should I just go with the heating instructions on the package?

Merry Christmas everyone and thanks in advance for your help.

    I bought a Honey Baked Ham and the instructions said to serve it at room temperature. If you want it warm, they say to foil it and heat at 275° for 10 minutes per pound and they warn it will dry out if over cooked. -RP

    I have one to. I am going to do a maple bourbon ham. I tried this for Easter & it was great.

    Pci I have done it that way about 8 times and never failed me.
    I always go spiral cut with bone.
    Salado TX Egg Family: 2 Large and a very well used Mini, just added a Mini Max (I'm good for now).

    Got one on right now myself. Others have said they cook a lot quicker. I'm gonna check on it in an hour as it is only a 9 lb one.

    When you bake it, tie it up with string to prevent it from drying out.

  • Mickey,
    How do you modify Egret's method with a spiral cut ?

    Thanks
