The Dust gives a light smoke with no additional heat needed. I would run a full maze once, slice off a piece and try it. If it's good for you, you're done. Too light? Run another maze load of dust and test again...JJ

I think 6 to 10 hours is perfect.

 

I tried 24 hours one time, just for the heck of it & it was way too smokey.

 

I think JJ's idea of testing it after the first maze is a good one. You may like your bacon smokier than me.

Late to the party! Bacon looks great. I always do 18-24 hours of smoke, cold, over a period of several days. 6-8 hours of smoke. Then overnight rest in fridge, then more smoke repeat. Never been overly smokey.
