Down to personal preference.
We like it smoked as it just adds to the flavour.
Either can be used for roasts & sandwiches etc.
#2
One tastes smoky the other does not.
#3
is one more salty than the other?

I cover mine in honey and muscovado sugar before baking in the oven.

Does this simply create a nice flavour throughout the meat and a crust?

Smoked can leave you very thirsty after, if it's been done on the cheap. I don't mind smoked if it's a good, more expensive one, but cheap ones I steer well clear as the "smoke" flavour is always harsh and synthetic tasting. I much prefer unsmoked which I do the Nigella way, cooked in coca cola, then spread with mustard powder, black treacle and brown sugar, stud with cloves, then blasted in the oven to caramelise the top. That doesn't give a flavour all through the meat obviously, but leaves a lovely sweet/festive flavoured edge on the slices. We're going to have that for Christmas dinner this year, then I'm doing a chicken on boxing day (not keen on turkey) with all the trimmings on boxing day, and leftover ham too, yum!

Up arrow for helpful, down arrow for not helpful..

Take no notice of them as people get down voted as others have nothing better to do with their time.

I get smoked and boil it. But as soon as pot goes to boil, I drain it and pour fresh water to get rid of salty one.
I know people bake it afterwards, but I don't bother, as tastes yummy anyway :)

Smoked is much better than un-smoked no matter what it applies to, i.e. fish, pork or meat :p
