Smoked a few pieces of cheese yesterday. Swiss, Sharp,Monterray Jack, Horseradish, and Pepper. Smoked 6 hrs. Oak chunks in Smoke Daddy. Ambient temperature 71. Used a bag of ice in water pan. Maverick said high temp in smoker was 81. Put in fridge for two weeks. We'll see. Ernie

Nice combination of smoke recipients there. Sounds like the ice in the pan worked for you, too...I've done that myself...81* peak chamber temp is a good, moderate temp...well done!!!

Be patient with your cheese and you will be rewarded...Enjoy!!!
