I ran my temp right around 200 or a little below, and it only took about 2.5 hours. Now keep in mind I only smoked half of the 7# belly...... I let the other half cure an extra couple days just to see if there was a taste difference. I brought the IT up to 150, then pulled it off cooled it and vacu-sealed it for a couple days to let the smoke flavor penetrate more deeply. Cold smoking, as I understand it, takes days at a much lower temp and a steady flow of smoke! I don't have time for all that.
