    It's a real pain to slice off cleanly, if you're trying to leave as much fat as possible.
  3. But when you buy it, it have the skins on..... right?

    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.
