First smoke with AMNS qview

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 

Update: rest of the pix are in a few posts below.

 

Howdy, after the chicken last night, my AMNS came in today. So after a costco run, in the ECB at 2:20pm, outside temp of 54f, internal temp of 52f. I hope it's enough for the smoke.

Will post more after I finish the smoke.

 

question... What does "Q view" mean? is it just a means of saying "pictures inside? "

 

Do I freeze or fridge the cheese for resting?

 

matter of fact... I should go check up on the lactose pills. going on hour four.

Q-view is pix of your smoke.  Until you can teleport your products for inspection, pix are the only way we can see what's really happening.  icon_cool.gif  We have a saying around here: if there's no q-view, it didn't really happen!

 

I age my cheese in the fridge for a MINIMUM of 2 weeks.  Phenomenal results.  As long as you have smoke, you should be getting the flavor to the cheese.  Keeping it under 90* keeps the cheese from melting. 

 

I don't smoke my cheese much more than 4 hours, maybe 5, so it might be time to pull soon.

Wrap the cheese tightly in plastic wrap and put in the fridge for 2 weeks and you will be ready to eat some really good cheese. What sawdust did you use

Looking Grest so far... 

 

The AMNS will produce plenty of smoke for smoking do not worry...

 

Do what Scarbelly said for aging the cheese...

 

As for lactose pills if you eat that much cheese you might want to check on Ex-Lax Pills instead...icon_mrgreen.gif

2 weeks ?

 

I thought 8 days would be ok :(

 

p.s. Does the "q" stand for anything in "qview" ? bbq view?

 

Critiques are welcomed!!

 

Thanks for looking!

What is the AMNS siting on top of? I can't make it out. With the temps you mentioned, you shouldn't have a problem. Some cheese will begin to soften-up at >95°. It's all good my friend.

Aged cheese does not have much lactose in it because the bacteria eats it all up.
