Smoking cheese.....maybe!!

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Hey all,

 Just thinking that I would like some nice smoked cheese. From my readings, cold smoking is the best, if not only way to go to do it. Has anyone here used a regular old offset smoker to do this? If so, how do you keep temps below 80-90, yet make plenty of smoke? Any input is welcome!!

If I smoked cheese on my offset I would

1) smoke when the temps were below 50°

2) place an AMNPS on the RF plate slightly left of the cheese away from the exhaust

 

you could use pellets in a can with a cheap harbor freight soldering iron, do a search for more info

If you get an Amazing Smoker (bottom of page), you can smoke cheese in a Cardboard Box:

What SQWIB & Bearcarver said x2.

 

I smoke my cheese when the temps are cooler, and I use my Amaze-n-smoker (sawdust type). I smoke it in my Traeger, with it off, just to have a good chamber. 

 

You just need to plan ahead, and hope you have enough to get you through the hot summer months.

 

Good luck

I used my offset smoker and froze two gallon sized ziplock bags with water and it helped to keep the temp down. Two bricks of charcoal and hickory chips was all i needed
