    I just finished curing about 20 pounds of pork belly. I put the bellies into the smoker and thought, I have used the same chips since I've been making bacon. I always use apple and a mix of fruit woods. The results are always great, but what do other bacon lovers use?   Also what is on the list of NOT to use.

    Mesquite is powerful and probably best with beef.... I like Hickory and Pitmasters Choice..
