Help, is my smoked ham already cooked?

So I have this lovely bone-in half of a smoked ham. I bought it from a local organic farmer that we have a CSA share with in the summer. I invited my mom over for dinner tonight, I thaw the ham, look in my trusty Joy of Cooking and it gives two kinds of directions: for already cooked and uncooked. The ever so helpful book says to read the label to find out which kind of ham you have. sheesh. My ham is wrapped in butcher paper. No label. I'm feeling like quite the idiot right now. Is there any way I can tell looking at this hunk o' meat what kind of ham I have and how to cook it?
