I did a little stabbing around with my digital thermometer and found there is a cool spot 2/3's the way up from the
bottom of the ham right in the middle. That spot is 148-degrees so I think I will leave the ham in there while at
church and hope it doesn't get overdone on the bottom......lower temps are around 155-156. Any thoughts???

Ya that should be fine, with the temp setting at 170 it shouldn't cook the ^%$# out of the already done, it will more "soak" the heat into the big hunk-o-meat

I am not being critical at all so please don't take it as such.  Why is the ham falling apart like pulled pork?  I would think at an IT of 152 or thereabouts it would slice rather than "pull".

Just wondering as I want to do a fresh ham at some point.

No idea. My first ham. The center was 152-degrees but the outer edges were 156-degrees. Moist and tender. I though it would slice too. Maybe if I would have waited to cut into it until it cooled overnight in the fridge it would have sliced up nicer. I still have 2/3 of it cooling in the fridge but that is going to get reheated and ate for Christmas dinner.

Pulled or sliced I'll bet it is delicious.  Really nice job!

The end you sliced seems to be the end that was closest to the element. Was the outer temperature of the ham in that area no higher than 156?F. I'm sure as you get father back it will slice perfectly.

After eating a portion of the ham fresh off the smoker for Sunday dinner, I put the remainder of the ham in the fridge overnight. I took it out the next day and it sliced up beautifully. The only part that was loose meat was the area of the ham that was right above the heating element, probable a bit overdone there. I cut the rest into ham steaks which I will vacuum seal today and reheat for Christmas dinner. I think it tastes better on day two and three!

Sliced Ham steaks :)
