Dumb question: do you slice this into bacon or serve some other way?

Yes I sliced it and cook it at 350*F in the oven. I start at 15 min and check it. I add time as needed.

I have a snack in the oven now and I am at 16 min and counting.

Edit: Took about 18 min

Man! Now I'm hungry.

Someday I'll give a try but I don't think it would work very well in a 22" Weber kettle.  :(

Good job!

What temperature does the meat get to during smoking?

150*F. It doesn’t ‘cook’, just develop flavor. Though it has been cured, and smoked, it still has to be cooked before eating.
