Any day ending in 'Y' is a day for smoking...

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 

Working from home today and needed to try out some dust from Todd.  What a great day to smoke some cheese.

 

I just cannot get enough of the Smoked Pepper Jack and Smoked Queso Fresco.  If you haven't tried some of the Queso Fresco yet, do yourself a favor and try it, fantastic!  If you can find it, buy it in the 5lb block, divide it into pounds, then smoke it in 8oz hunks.  It is a crumbling/melting cheese anyway, so I throw it in the freezer and it lasts forever.

 

Ambient temp 63 degrees, smoker temp 77 after 1 hour.

 

I will pull the mozzarella at 2 hours, my kids love it with just a taste of smoke, and doing it this way it's much cheaper than string cheese for their school lunches.

Pulled the Mozz and threw on some Havarti just to see what it tastes like.

Looks good! Where'd you get the mozz like that? I'd love to try it that way instead of the blocks.

Got this mozz at Costco, came in a 2 pack.  Good stuff.

Ended up with some decent color on the cheeses.  Had to resort to an ice bath around hour 3.

Yeah it is, I'm out of the smoked pepper jack, so I'm going to have a hard time waiting for it.
