    Looks good Zippy!
    I'm waiting for the pics of some slices. Be Back.

    In case anyone is interested:
    I Smoke my Belly Bacon in a 100° to 130° smoker for about 10 to 12 hours, and don't worry about the IT, because I'll fry it before eating it.

    However I always take my BBB and my CB to 145° IT, so it's safe to eat cold, or warm it first.

    Nothin boreing about that . Great lookin slice , and burger . I take my loins to 145 , but don't fry them because for me it's then to dry . BBB I smoke then fry to crisp and finish . That's why I asked above . Looks great bud , nice job . We learned it from the same guy .

    Its my first time ... BBB is very forgiving to noobs. Next time more salt and smoke in the pellet tube.... and Its a UDS so I am still learning its quirkyness .... Now I am on the hunt for fatty big butts! although freezer is full :eek:

    I have a pellet grill and can’t get anywhere as low as 130. However, on a sunny day the internal temp of the smoker is usually around 125 for most of the day. Think I could use a smoke tube and the natural heat from the sun to make this?

    That's Fine if you're making BBB or CB. Holding Temps between 150° and 190° is Fine!!
    Then take the Internal Temp to 145°:
