First Cheese Smoke

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 

And they are in

 

 

Whats in there:

 

3 kinds of cheddar

 

Sharp Provy

 

Colby

 

Brie

 

Gouda

 

Parmesan (becuase why not)

 

Figured if im firing up the smoker might as well put in as much as i can.

 

I am concerned of the outside temp.  Right now its 27 degrees outside.  Obviously i am cold smoking.  How will this affect me?  Should i put in a couple pieces of charcoal?

You should be fine with the cooler temp. I usually will just smoke longer. You probably won't get much color change with the colder temp. Still will have the smoke flavor.

Smoked Gouda is excellent.

didnt turn out how i thought it would.  No color change as expected per dirtsailors post.  I am tasting a bitter taste to it, which is overpowering the smoke flavor i think.  I had it in for about 4 hours and had my amnps lit from both ends.  Is that my issue?

You'll need to let it age a few weeks minimally to get the flavor as you are expecting. Right out of the smoke you be better off licking an ashtray and I'm a radically crazy anti-smoker... Read Mr. T's tutorial. It's a godsend

Just tasted the cheeses after letting them age for 2 weeks.  They are pretty good.  The sharp provy hardly took any smoke to it which looking back is easy to see why.
