Ice above or below the cheese

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 

This weekend I'll be doing a morning  AMNPS cheese cold smoke and figure I'll need to use some ice to help keep the temp down.  Since cold has a tendency to drop, would it be best to have the ice above the cheese or just keep it between the heat (AMNPS) and the cheese?

Keep the ice in a glass with your favorite beverage!

I tried ice once and it just created too much humidity and caused the cheese to sweat like crazy and it didn't really keep the temp down much. Nepas told me to quit using it and I do what he says!

I now use Q-Matz and can go up to 150* without any droop!

This was a forced melt at 150*, Q-Matz on the left, just on the rack on the right:

Craig I cold smoked at 100* outside put a tray of ice underneath and it lowered it to 80 in my smoke box...cheese turned out great! Just had some last night.

You know, it might help if I had mentioned that I will be smoking some butter as well.  Can't imagine butter tolerating any temp above 100*
