I have a belly and half a loin Cured and drying in fridge for smoker,  now I am only going to take the belly to 120 deg but I was wondering if I should go ahead and take the canadian bacon to about 160 so it can be eaten and used in recipes without haveing to cook first.

What do most people do with it???

I would say that most people do fully cook canadian bacon but you wouldn't have to as long as you remember to cook it before you eat it.

I shoot for 155°, that way I can slice it for lunch meat or warm it up for breakfast.
