Default Rest time for bacon?

Is bacon like smoked cheese, do you have to let it rest after smoking to get the good result? Just got done taking my first batch of bacon off the smoker(ended up being a hot smoke) and was hoping to fry some up tomorrow morning after I start the brisket.

I have only smoked a pork belly a few times, it definitely is better with at least an overnight rest

My method is to rest long enough to drink a beer and then start frying it up and eat until I feel dirty. But thats just me.

I would think that I would fry up a few slices for a taste test myself.
When I smoke salmon I have to sneak a test piece.
Cheese I always swipe a test piece too but a week in the fridge always makes it better.

much easier to slice it cold than it is fresh out of the smoker.

I always let it sit at least overnight, wrapped to let it settle and the fats to solidify.

Cheese wouldn't be a good comparison as cheese needs a minimum of 1 week before you want to eat it.

The bacon you cured it and hot smoked it? Normally you cure it and cold smoke it for frying later.
