Cold Smoked Cheese On A Hot Summer Day

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 

 

I picked up some cheese the store had on sale 50% off, my kind of deal. I loaded up one row in the AMNS with cherry and maple dust and got that going. Next the water pan filled with ice. Four hours of heavenly TBS before the drum hit 109° and had to pull it as I got one little drip of cheese in the water pan.  I started at 5:30 this morning before it got to hot. So can you smoke cheese on a summer day? Yes you can. Enjoy.

 Al if you start it early enough you should be ok. I'm in the desert and it worked for me. I smoked on my patio and was good until the sun started hitting the smoker.

Your not to far from me, you should be able to smoke some.Even a cardboard box on a table would work if you start early enough and put it on the west side out of the sun.

Thanks Steveo, I never smoked colby before so I'm curious to the outcome. But hey any cheese is good in my book. icon14.gif

They have Kroger on sale quite often my way, first time I've seen Tillamook at 3.99. I just wished they had the white cheddar.

I had one of the best cheeses I've ever tasted the other day. It was a Spanish Cheese called Murcia al vino. Its a goat cheese soaked in wine from the region. I wish I could afford it more often and was thinking how  good it might be smoked. Drunken Goat Cheese is the nick name for it, out of this world.

I smoked a few blocks last week with my soldering iron tin can method, temps got up a little over 100* so when one block started sagging pretty good through the grate after 4 hours i grabbed everything out and stuck them in the freezer for an hour then back in the smoker for a couple more hours. I did this all by accident but it worked out really well and tastes even better. Probably the best ive done. Maybe give it a try next time when the temps get high.

This one has a purple rind it may be the same cheese. Drunken goat cheese is easier to say than Murcia al vino (for me at least) haha. Its like twenty five dollars a lb but it gets marked down sometimes fifty percent.

Was that a "Drunk Who Bought The Goat Cheese"!?!?!?!

 

LOL!!

 

GREAT Looking Cheese Mike!

IMHO - I think cheese smokes better when there's a little "Sweat" on it.  Not 100% sure, but I've noticed better smoke, when it just starts to sweat.  SOB noticed this too.

Thanks Todd, I think it takes on more smoke also when it sweats, sure smelled like it did. I would have smoker longer but they were ready to start dripping. :)
