Smoking bacon in the WSM questions

  1. Had a few questions for anyone that smoke bacon in a WSM 22.

    1) If you go to smoke pre-sliced packaged bacon from the store what are your finish times like?  I'm gauging based on the thickness it should take 1-1.5 hours to smoke some thick applewood bacon from Sams.

    2) Cold smoking bacon how are your results with the Amazin-n-smoker with the pan present VS removed?

    3) Has anyone seen better cold smoking results with the bowl removed and an alum pan used in its placed?
  2. I have never tried to smoke pre sliced bacon. I would keep the slices together even if I had to tie it. Then I would treat it like a whole bacon. Then if you smoe till you get the color the way you like it. It will probably have the flavor you want. Let it rest a few days before using.

    Happy smoken.

    I use my WSM 18.5 for cold smoking my bacon.  I always remove the water pan and never use anything like an alum pan.  I like to think the smoke coming directly up and hitting the bacon is better.  Could all be in my mind though
