    Well after a little tin whacking and some soldering the Bradley cold smoker retrofit is done. I decided to smoke some store bought and some home made cheese.

    After smoking the mozzarella, cheddar, monterey jack, asiago and edam I put the cheese in the fridge overnight and then vacuum sealed the next morning. I smoked it for 5 hours with a hard wood blend of dust with some added maple. It is pretty pungent at this point we will see what it is like in a month or two.

    Thanks CrazyMoon

    I made a 8lb spiced Gouda 2 weeks ago after it has aged I want to try smoking a piece to see if it clashes with the cumin.

    Thanks driedstick, I was thinking I would have to dismantle it for hot smoking (not really a big deal) but I hot smoked some ribs and realised that it was better to hot smoke this way for more consistent temperature i.e. no heat loss from the oven when adding wood.
