How long is buckboard good for in the fridge after it has been smoked to under 152F?  And over 152F?

About a dozen fried eggs per pound, over easy.

I've kept it in the fridge for about 2 weeks.  I do all mine to above 140° making it fully cooked to kill trich.  Any more time the meat will start getting slimy or develop a salt mold both of which will wash off, but will end up permeating into the meat and spoiling it.  I cut the butts in half lengthwise prior to pickling them to make them more like regular bacon slices so they're smaller, and likewise I don't have to keep as much unthawed either.

It's just the wife and myself now so we freeze it all up and just pull it out a piece at a time.
