    Does anyone hot smoke their bacon?What's the advantage of smoking at the the lower temps.?Is it ok to smoke over 150 degrees?Thanks

    I think you want to stay with cold smoking,you don't want to cook your bacons in the smoker.I smoke mine at 135 until the internal hits 128-130 then take it out.Make sure to leave out the smoke until the surface of the bacon is well dried because a wet bacon will not take smoke right.To get a real smoke flavor like old fashioned hickory bacon I smoke mine for at least 16 hours.The less time in the smoke the milder the flavor,thats up to your taste.
