    Thought I would try my 1st time cold smoking today, and I mean "cold" (30 deg today).  I am putting down mild cheddar, baby Swiss, mozzarella, pepper jack, and string cheese.  Warmed my MES40 to around 100 and shut it off and put 1 row of maple pellets in my AMNPS and lit one end.  Put the cheese in the 2nd row from the top and will check back in 2.5hrs.


    Just put it down for a smokey nap.

  2. after the smoke remember to let it rest in the frig for two weeks, that is the hard part

    Tried the Mozzarella last night on some chicken breast pizza.  It was amazing.

    1 butterflied chix breast

    1 tb pizza sauce

    Sauteed green pepper n mushrooms

    Italian seasoning

    smoked mozzarella

    Pepperoni slices (or I also use my homemade kielbasa sliced thin)

    Bake seasoned chix for 45 min at 375

    take it out and put your other goodies on it and back in the oven for 10 more min.
