Load number two of the Holiday cheese. This time 10 pounds. 5 pounds Tillamook medium Cheddar. 5 pounds Colby. I have been buying the cheese this year at Cash & Carry, average price has been $12 per 5# brick, or $2.40/#. Just a we bit better than the grocery store. I hate to waste grate space so for good measure I threw in some peeled hard boiled eggs! Ran the 12"tube in the uds with apple pellets.
Snacked on some leftover tri tip while I waited!
I half the bricks then quarter the halves. I have been getting a bit of moisture in the uds, Hence the steamy look to the TBS. I may pre-heat the drum a bit from now on and see if that helps. Or just go back to using the GOSM for cold smoking.
Oh Cheesus how we love you!!!
Let's not forget about the eggs!
Might as well make lunch!
I used my standard method for making the eggs. Place in cold water, over high heat bring to rapid boil. Boil for 5 minutes. Remove from heat cover pot and let stand for 25 minutes. Shock in cold water. Nice creamy yellow yolks every time!
Decisions Decisions Decisions. West Coast Hellman's or Trader Joe's Wasabi Mayo???
Wasabi it is! Spied some cabbage in the fridge and decided that it would pair well with the wasabi mayo and the smoked eggs.
Let me tell you, on some 9 grain bread, this egg salad was fantastic!!! The cabbage and the smoke went really well with the wasabi mayo!
