I have the 5x7 Amazing Smoker, All I have is oak pellets, What Pellet wood would be appropriate for the cheese, It will be cold smoked in a Brinkmann Horizontal Smoker. I plan on smoking the cheese this weekend.

    Oak is fine for cheese. I really like to use fruit woods like apple, cherry, peach or a combination of those woods. Alder is another mild wood that works we'll for cheese too.

    I agree - the Oak will be fine for cheese. I use it regularly
