Today was a beautiful day here in pa on the lake, was about 60 and warm sunshine!!! Thought it was the perfect day to finally try some cheese in the mes and the amns for smoke!! Went to the store and picked some cheese up and drove back home as quickly as i could!! This is what i picked up,not alot for my first try just in case i mess up!
Loaded the amns with one row of maple and one of cherry!
Fired up the mes to warm it up a bit,only to about 80 then i lit both ends of the amns and put it in.Waited for the temp to come down to bout 72 then loaded the cheese in.
Never had to warm it up again the amns kept it at 70-72 the whole time! Both rows in the amns lasted 3 hours,i couldn't belive one rows lasted that long!!!! Figured that since the amns was empty 3 hours was enough smoke. This was my first shot so i'm not sure if that was too much or too little smoke...time will tell. They look good to me!
And a close up..
The wait begins...tic tock tic tock...Man its going to hard to last
Had to put 3 in one bag cause i was out. gonna have to get some more so i can seperate them.The amns made this very easy,really just put it in the mes and walk away!! Well not really being my first time doing cheese i kept checking it like every 5 mins. But thats ok i was outside working anyhow! Thanks for looking--LES
