I have never cooked a ham before, and have a just-under 7 lbs bone-in ready-to-cook smoked ham.

I found some directions online that indicated to cook the covered ham for 25 minutes per pound.

I do not have a meat thermometer -- how can I tell if it is done?

Thank you!!!

For just under 7 lbs you would cook it for just under 3 hours at that temp. I never use a meat thermometer, and if it's smoked then it's already cooked and you're just heating it up, really.

Here is some info on cooking hams and the different types.

However, fresh hams need to be cooked.
