I am working on some lamb bacon. It is curing now. What temperature should I smoke it at? At what internal temperature should I take it out of the smoker?

So I have a question for you (ain't this a chaange) can you make bacon out of lamb.? If you have a recipe can I have it? I don't know about lamb bacon but I have made some and smoked it but never lamb.

Lamb Bacon? That is intriguing...I have no idea what to tell you.
I take my pork bacon out at 142, but wouldn't even know how to start with lamb.

Hey dragonslayer.
Found this link for you to check out.
This guy did his smoking at 250 for 2 1/2hrs or until the internal temp was 140 but he hot smoked, this next one they actually did a cold smoke.

Hope either of these were helpful though personally I would go with the "cold smoke" one.

so if we can assume that lamb is the same as pork we should take it to about 140F, that sounds like a hot smoke? It seems like most people cold smoke bacon? So hot smoke or cold smoke? what temp should I try to get the smoker to for a cold smoked bacon? what temp should I get the meat to for a cold smoke? Also, if I do end up hot smoking the bacon to 140 what temp should I get the smoker to?

i would go with what Rytek has in his book after all bacon is bacon. It says 135 till dry then close damper to 1/4 open apply smoke and hold till 127-128 internal temp is achieved..after that lower temps and hold till desired color.

OK the lamb is ready to come out of the brine but I am not ready to smoke it. Can I freeze it and smoke it later?
