First try at cheese

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 

Okay I received my AMNS today, with some Hickory and Mesquite.

 

So I took a small block of Cheddar, small block of Colby Jack, and a small block of Pepper Jack

cut them into small long blocks and now am cold smoking them.

 

Lighting the AMNS was a breeze and the dust fired up and is smoking fine.

Will send pics when it is done.

 

Also would like to thank everyone in this forum for all the advice again.

 

And also I want to thank Todd for such a great product. Thanks Todd.

You are really going to like that thing. Turns $2 a pound cheese into $10 a pound cheese. It's like magic.

Post your pics when you're done.

Make sure you vac seal and allow to rest for 10 days or so.

Smoked cheese can be bitter until it mellows out

 

ENJOY!

Can't wait to here the results, I'm sure it will be delicious!

 

I have a hot spinach dip recipe that calls for smoked mozzarella cheese. If I can find it I will share it with you guys, that dip is delicious, I think I got it from food network's website.

Yup, good looking product there- doing some every couple weeks keeps the waiting pains at bay once the first is ready.

I let it smoke for 2.5 hrs. That seemed to be a average smoke time and I can adjust from there.
