I'm going to smoke some Cheddar, pepper jack, Colby. I've got some peach, plum, apple and cherry dust. Has anyone used peach or plum for cheese? How long should I smoke it for?
I have used hickory, apple, and peach. Of the three I like apple the most with peach a very close second. I found hickory to have a little to much bite for me with cheese. I also smoke cheese for about 4 hours.
i use pecan, apple, or hickory,, i only smoke for 1 1/2 to 2 hrs depending if you like a a little smoke taste or a lot
i found most women i smoke cheese for only like a hint of smoke,, also add a pan of ice
in your smoker to help cheese from melting, again everyone is different that why
smoking and bbq is so popular... remember i can get your recipe and when i'm done it will taste different
than yours,,, i smoke 10-30 lbs of cheese a week for people and everyone is different in their taste,, you can't go
wrong unless you melt it....lol.. good luck..
I really think the type of wood and the length of smoke depend on personal preference, type of equipment and method.
I use the AMNS and our family likes a mix of maple and cherry smoked for 3 to 4 hours.
I would experiment and find a combo that suits your family and friends.
Good luck and good smoking.
