Default Best temp for "hot" smoked bacon

In the past I've made my bacon on my WSM, keeping temps as low as I can, normally about 220*. Now with my Yoder YS640 and it's digital controller, I can cook at any temp down to 150*.

Is there an advantage to smoking at 150* or 180* vs 220*?

If I do cook down at 150* do I need to start adjusting my cure? I currently use cure #1, and worry about being in the danger zone for to long.

Thanks for any input.

I start smoking at low temperatures (actually cold smoking) and then I raise the smoker temperature to achieve the internal finishing temperature of the bacon.

The more smoke applied at lower temperatures, the more smoke flavor that can be absorbed into the meat.

You do not need to adjust your cure, the purpose of using cure #1 is because you are curing and smoking at low temperatures.
