Cold smoking some cheese on this hot muggy evening...Q Views

...and it's gonna be 90 degrees with 106 heat index...seems silly in this weather BUT I'M OUT!!!

It'll be plenty cool in my smoke house but cold smoking and 100 plus heat index just doesn't sound normal! Lol

Q Views coming tonight

Yes i should have had some cheese stock piled but since i didn't.... here we go.  It's about 90-95 outside and muggy as all get out and i'm cold smoking!

 

Loaded up the Smoke Daddy with lump, mesquite and some hickory

Used an pan of ice under the cheese and the temp dropped to about 80....hopefully will drop more! (fingers crossed)

I'll give a  couple of hours and see how she does!

If you can hold 80 you'll be fine. I like that high tec thermometer. is that Cheddar and Colby Jack?

Happy smoken

The Colby Jack has a pretty low melt point.

Mule,  I especially like his choice of aged cheeses.  May was an exceptional month.  ROTF.gif

The last time I did it in the heat, I had to replace the ice tray every hour...now I have a freezer full of large Gatorade bottles getting ready for my next break in the heat.
Looks good, stay frosty!

One hell of a price to pay, but I'm sure it would be worth it.

I once had to preheat the smoker to cold smoke.

This batch is turning out good, getting ready to pull it soon. I'll probably do another round in a week or so. 

 

So how's the drum going?
