    Got up this morning and decided it was a perfect day to smoke some Cheese.

    The Grocery store had these on sale, Perfect. So I ran up and grabbed some.

    Fired up the Reverse Flow a good steady 225º  JUST KIDDING  Fired up mt AMNPS with some Wine Barrel Pellets and put it in my Cook chamber on top of my upside down charcoal basket, Cheese on the racks, and let it smoke.

    About 5 hours of light smoke, pulled and let sit on the counter for a while then into Zip Lock's for a few days and Vacuum seal.

    Back from the store and cheese laid out

    On the Racks and Ready to go

    AMNPS just smoking away

    Cheese On !!

    Cheese Off   ready for the fridge

    More Pics when I Vac Seal    Thank's for looking

    Gary, that cheese looks great!    I want to try to smoke cheese but I haven't worked up the courage yet.[​IMG]
  9. Thank you,, Cheese smoking is super easy, Hardest part is letting it mellow for a few weeks

    Spot on once again Gary!

    Smoked cheese is perfect year round, but this time of year is when I really hammer into mine.  I think we ate 3 pounds over the weekend...

    Looking forward to it!
  18. Cheese is still resting in the fridge  

  19. Big Follow Up !!!  I got a block of cheese out that I smoked back in January  Over 7 month and OMG !!!   this stuff just gets better and better. I opened one a couple of months back and thought Wow  but it just keeps getting better. As soon as it cools down I am going to fill up my smoker with cheese.

    This is some seriously good stuff.


  20. I agree i have 1 block left, I will definitely fill the fridge this winter. We had to ration the cheese this summer but i learned my lesson.
