Smoking Cheese, Taking Advantage of the Early Cold

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 

I am ashamed to admit I allowed myself to run out of smoked cheese. Do I have to turn in my SMF secret decoder ring?

 

The temperature has really dropped here in the mountains so I figured it was perfect timing for a cheese smoke.

 

I bought some Kraft Old Cheddar, Some Armstrong Extra Old Cheddar and some Garlic Herb cheese.

 

 

I thought I would be able to use my Bradley with just the pucks being smoked as opposed to the A-MAZE-N Pellet Smoker because it was so cold. Wrong! I ended up having to babysit the smoker as the temperature kept creeping up. Every 1/2 hour I had to open the door and cool it down. I guess it is insulated better than I thought it was. Anyway, after 3 hours the cheese came out and looks perfect.

 

 

Now it is just waiting for it to age. It serves me right for running out of smoked cheese.

Looks good Disco, that would be nice on top of a bowl of smoked chili or in a smoked chicken quesadilla....  It got cold down here to, it dropped to just under 50° last night :yahoo:

Disco, That looks great but as Adam said you should have smoked a lot more. I checked the :rules: and a full smoker is a happy smoker.

Happy smoken.

Thanks, Darwin. Go ahead, rub your weather in to a guy who is living in a deep freeze! It also goes great on enchiladas!

Thanks, David. There are several problems with your theory.

 

1 I am fat and don't have will power, If I have more cheese I will eat it.

2 I am retired and can't afford to buy a lot of cheese at Canadian prices.

3 She Who Must Be Obeyed is already giving me the hairy eyeball over making "too much" cheese.
