I have only made bacon once and it was BBB
The recipe I used said to hot smoke it to 150f which I did. took about 8 hours using hickory
they stated that hot smoking it would give it a more intense bacon flavor.
It tasted fine, reminded me more of candian bacon though. Might have been because I was using butt.
I have 8 lbs of belly curing right now for smoking this weekend, I was going to try cold smoking it, but now I am not so sure
