I have made and smoked a lot of good bacon. My problem is the end product always seems to be a little tough.(chewy) Any suggestions would be appreciated.

The only time I get any "Chewy" Bacon is if it is very lean, like BBB.
I slice it in all directions, and never noticed a difference.
How high temp are you smoking it to. If you're cooking it twice, that could do it.
OK----If you smoke it to 150° IT, and then Fry it before eating it, you are cooking it twice. This will toughen it up some.
Since you Smoked it to 150° IT, try just warming it a bit in the frying pan. This is what I do with my BBB and CB. It's already been to 150°, so it would be safe to eat cold.
