    This is under general because it crosses over several forums. I also think it would be hilarious if it happened to someone else!
    Collected up cheese from different sales over the past month for a cold smoke.
    Cut them to size and got the smoke generator going.
    Temp outside is about 55 so perfect weather and MES 40 was Waiting.
    So.... This is my first cold smoke. I used smoke generator attachment. I've read through everything SMF and have followed Bear Carver tutorial. Ironically I'd just made a crack to Bear about not cleaning my grates when I went outside to check the cheese to be welcomed by.....
    I assumed the timer on MES could be used without turning on heating element, wrong. Oh so, so, so, wrong.

    Oh no! Sorry for your loss. it is never ideal to learn lessons this way, however I am certain you won't make the same mistake again. Give it another shot, I recently smoked my first batch of cheese which has opened the floodgates for more! I'm sure your next attempt will be successsful.
  3. Wow, That is one of the best messes I have ever seen.  Sorry for all that cheese loss, Not Cheap   But it is a nice mess.  Maybe Bearcarver can tell you how to clean that up ???

    Damn it man that sucks,,, scrap it off and use in mac and cheese and/or casserole or tacos,,,it's still good 

    Don't worry we all will do it or have done it one way or another 

    A full smoker is a happy smoker - Stay happy

    Thanks for the laughs guys. I needed it for therapy. My family and I went for a long walk and just read through your responses to get a laugh and some closure to the great New Years Cheese Catastrophy of 2016. I had this in last night, and my comment to Bear was I don't clean my smoker, so couldn't reuse the cheese:

    Epic fail describes it alright.....    Scrape it up and add it to the dog's food....   Dogs love cheese....  ESPECIALLY  dirty cheese....

    The remains on the top rack look like cheese jerky!

    POINTS for getting that mess cleaned up!

    Yes Dave, my Dog definitely helped which upset my wife more because cheese gives our dog the runs. Now the dog has to stay outside for the night otherwise our rugs will be a lot less appetizing than the cheese fiasco.

    LOL---I don't have a Step by Step on Cheese, so you can't pin that one on the Bear.

    That's a Beauty----Bigger Mess than "RichTee's", and his is "World Famous"
