It's a real pain to slice off cleanly, if you're trying to leave as much fat as possible.

Depends. You may find some places that offer it without. I just bought a case of 3 at Restaurant Depot, that were skinless.

Given a choice I buy without skin, But I have been handling a Knife over 40 years so to remove the skin is no big deal and the dog likes the Smoked Skin as a treat. You can also make beans and such with the skin...JJ

Try both and decide!

I prefer without the skin.  Having said that, the skin, when peeled off will give you many opportunities to innovate. 

I remember many a rind-on bacon when I was a kid.  Never see that any more?

Good luck and good smoking.
