I am making my first attempt at curing bacon. Several resources say that after the curing period, it should be cold smoked at less than 90 degrees for 4 to 8 hours. Other resources say to smoke it until it reaches an internal temp of 150 degrees. These methods seem to be at odds. What am I missing? Also does it have to hang or is it ok to smoke it on a rack?
