There are two things I see in this pic that make me laugh.

2 I have heard rumors that the stretch tite in the window is used in another room at your house

What temp does BBB need to be smoked to?
It's not really a "need to" thing. I did mine to about 145˚, but then I have to fry it to 160˚ before eating it.

My next batch will be smoked to about 160˚, just like my "Canadian Bacon/Smoked Pork Chops".

That way I can eat it cold, or warm it up a little, without having to toughen it up in the frying pan.

It's actually like regular Bacon, if you want--you can cold smoke it, but sooner or later you gotta take it to 160˚.

at what temp do you let the smoker get too, and the internal temp of the meat, also what type of wood do you use for smoking???

Is this like bacon, 

except Better?
 
Howdy there, this is an older thread so I will jump in and say welcome! Too answer both your questions Buck Board Bacon is another type of bacon and it is really good.

As for the temps it all depends on what you are doing. With cured bacon most cold smoke it at temps below 70*, and the IT of the meat never getting above that. When hot smoking bacon the smoker temp can vary but usually lower than 225*. Hot smoked bacon should be taken to an IT of 145*.

Type of wood is a personal preference, I prefer sweeter woods like apple, cherry, pecan, maple.

i like it since it pork butts are way cheaper than bellies......this past holiday season i was getting them for about a buck a pound. i would debone them, just use the top cap for bacon and use the bottom for tamales and sausage.when i square up the edges it looks just like belly but meatier.  it is leaner than bellies so................i can eat more?

i had no heat in the smoker....i use the a-maze-n-smoker from todd. it is by far the best/most versatile product on the market for cold smoking (i am in no way affiliated with todd and i do not get paid for any endorsement). as far the wood.....he has pellets of all kinds, i like pecan, maple, and his pitmaster's blend.
