Adjusting the roasting time for a Christmas ham?

I'm planning to cook a smoked ham, and the recipe I'm following calls for roasting a 15-pound ham at 300F for 2 hours, glazing it, and then roasting at 350F for an additional 1.5 hours. My ham is only a little over 8 pounds, so I'm wondering how I should adjust the cooking time. How long might it need to be in the oven at 300, and then at 350?

I would go with internal temperature, rather than the time in the oven. For the fully cooked or smoked ham the internal temperature should be about 140F. So if you have a meet thermometer, it's your best friend in this situation.

... meant to say meat thermometer (sorry was typing too fast).
