I smoked cheese today, but didn't inhale...

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I just wanted to share my first cold smoke. I looked all over for different cold smoke generators and decided on a basic diy model I saw on you tube.
As you can see I used an old Styrofoam cooler for a vessel, seemed to work well.
So I cut up some cheeses, sharp cheddar, gouda, mild cheddar, and a block of pepper jack.
I really wanted to use Apple but lazy ass couldn't get out today to get them so I use some hickory chips I had left over.
My smoke varied a bit throughout the four hour smoking time from light to heavy, it was a bit tough regulating the air pressure, I'll tune it in better next time.
That was an hour or so in.

Finished product...looks a little light in color but from what I understand it will darken up a bit...?
So now...the wait. It's been a few hours on the rack lightly covered, tomorrow I will vac Pac and store in the fridge for what will seen like forever.
I also smoked some pork butt and sausage today in my new mb 30 electric. Came out amazing.

Nice! Word of advice, don't share the cheese with friends or family. Once you do, they will expect it all the time. I've gotten to where I just eat my cheese in the garage, and don't tell anyone I have made more...............

That's good advise.

Hi there! And from another "Live Free or Die" devotee indeed! (I'm on the Seacoast).


I like the way you "say cheese" to speak! As this big smoke just looks terrific! Great job!


Cheers! - Leah

I'm a south eastern boy myself.
Gonna vac Pac it today and then hide it from myself...if possible.
The weeks to a month will be tough knowing all the delicious smoked dairy is in the fridge
