I'm smoking at 200.
Should I turn it up?
Maybe to 250?
IT looks GREAT! I agree that most people over cook wild game. Medium rare 135° is the best IMHO.
You could boil but I don't think that would be the best approach with bacon. You can either microwave it or throw it in the skillet until it is part way done. I wouldn't cook it until it starts to brown but I would cook it long enough to start breaking down the fat. This approach isn't usually necessary with the long cook times for most smoked food but with venison cooking so fast it should help let the bacon render the fat.
