newbie smoked bacon to 176! bad?

Help ! Thought 45 degrees outside would hold down my smoking temp. After 1 hour in the smoker my first try at bacon the meat pieces registered between 165 and 176. Do I have a problem?

I take it you were hot smoking?  Yeah, I've read that anything beyond 128° and you are cooking the bacon and rendering out the fat. How did the bacon look? If it's completely cooked and the fat is gone, you might be able to salvage it by turning it into hash or something.

What kind of smoker were you smoking on? Is there any way use less fuel?

Plenty of fat, sliced and cooked some and it came out good. I'm using a cookshack using Esquire at 200.
