So about a week ago, I smoked some bacon for the first time, and thought...shoot, if I'm doing that I might as well try some cheese to, right? Not wanting to waste a bunch of expensive cheese, I went to the store and bought 4 blocks of cheese, 2 medium sharp cheddar, monterey jack, and pepper jack.
Sorry for the blurry pic, took this with my camera...
I smoked it for about 3 hours with maple, as that was what I had planned to use on the bacon, then brought them in, and food saved them for aging:
I couldn't help but try a little sliver of them, and they were tasty. I didn't really notice much of a color change (except the grate marks, lol), but could definitely taste the smoke. I just hope that I gave it long enough so that the flavor doesn't leave as it mellows. Anyways, I guess I'll find out on Wednesday when I can finally dig in!
