First cheese smoke (Q-view)

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 

Recieved my AMNPS this week so had to try some cheese.  I tried sharp cheddar, pepper jack, Gouda, extra sharp white cheddar, and fresh mozzarella.

Before

They spent two and a half hours in the smoke.  Not a huge change in color but they smelled great.

after

Sealed them up and am now not so patiently waiting two weeks to try them.  Except the fresh mozzarella from what I have read on the site here it should be good to eat the next day.

Looking good.  No worries with cheese when the amnps is on the job.  The waiting is the only problem.

can you tell me about each cheeses flavor? My first and only chunk of cheese was a piece of provolone I aged for 6 months and smoked for 6 hours. It was quite awesome but I believe there is a fine balance between smoke & cheese. Tell me about the fresh MOZ?!  Also, what do you do with your smoked cheeses? THANKS!

ONE last Q, how long does everyone like to bloom their cheese? I'm really curious as to soft and hard cheeses.

Great looking cheese smoke. As soon as the fresh mozzarella is chilled it is ready to go. I first experienced this cheese in NY delis who make their own cheese and smoke it.

 

The rest of it will take 2 weeks or more.

Well to answer your questions I am not really sure what I will do with the hard cheese once there done but I am sure it will not be hard to figure something out after I taste them. Here is what I have done with the mozzarella, some french bread, basil, pepperoni and, marinara sauce because french bread pizza never hurt anyone.

Cheese looks great and the waiting is the hardest. Now that french bread pizza looks awesome!

I eat my smoked cheese quite a bit just as snacks I will slice it up for crackers or have a few chunks with a glass of beer while watching a game.  Also I have made mac and cheese, put on tacos, mixed into burger meat along with bacon, and my favorite mixing into crab and cheese stuffed shroms.
