First Cold Smoke for me w/Q-View

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Well,
I got my AMZNPS from Todd last week and finally had time to try it out. I burned it and cleaned it per instructions after cooking some burgers the other night and then washed it. My Wife bought some Cheddar cheese and Mozzarella sticks for the first try.

Outside Temp earlier was 104!!!eek.gif

I froze a couple Gatorade bottles because I knew I would need them.

Poured two rows of Apple Dust in the tray and lit it with my Map Gas torch...... Need to get a propane bottle so I can use the torch Todd sent. My current torch is ON high or off..... Not much control.

Cut the block of Cheddar Cheese into 5 pieces pretty close to the same size as width and got three Mozzarella sticks on plates all ready to go.

Temp outside on the patio was down to 98 devil.gif

Inside Webber was 79 to start. Wish it woulda stayed there!!!

Temp inside climbed to about 95 over the next couple hours and I didn't have more ice bottles, so I just let it go.,.....

Pulled the cheese off at 3:15 on the smoke. Boy did it smell GREAT!!!

Wiped off oils that seeped out.

Ready for the fridge......

I figure more cold smoking around here is gonna have to be done deep night until winter and spring roll around. My bacon that I put on the cure lat night will be ready in about 10days..... Might take a day (night) off to smoke that!!!! Time will tell......

Looks good.
As far as starting the AMNPS . Weber has "starter cubes" that work great.

Yup, Weber starter cubes work great, and only take a match to start the cube

I will have to look for those. What are they made from?? I'm kind of a purist when it comes to lighting fires and such.... Campfires = NO Paper.... BBQ=NO fluids or petroleum products .... biggrin.gifbiggrin.gif

Just smoked cheese for the first time last week. They aren't kidding when they say they need to rest a few days. I liked swiss the best. Nice color on your cheese!
