Boss asked me to smoke some cheese

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
So, late last week, my boss asked me to smoke some cheese for him. Of course I told him no problem!

Well, this cheese hurt my nostrils and eyes as soon as I opened it!



I had to have a taste, so I sliced off a small piece; my findings are this; that stuff is hot!

But, he wanted it smoked, so last night I put it in the new smoker, now dubbed the Buzzard Baker"....

Here it is after putting into the smoker.



I put the 4 blocks into the smoker, lit the Amazen tray full of pecan pellets, closed the door, and left it until I went out at 0500 the next morning. This is what I found....


Yeah, doesn't look like much, but when I got home tonight, and vacuum packed the blocks, I saw the real color!



Yeah, a 3 week rest is gonna be good, but a 14 month rest shall rock! I held one back, it's his word against mine as to how much he gave me!

It looks great! any time I smoke for someone it is on the halves if it is a simple smoke. If it is a cure and smoke I take more.

Happy smoken.

I let them run for right at 8 hours.  the AMNPS was still going strong when I went out.

 

I'm keeping the block on the right, as agreed, but like you Mule, anything that's in my pit as a favor, will be partially consumed! :biggrin:

Looks good from here, but do you always smoke for 8 hours? For my tastes anything over 3 hours gets oversmoked for me.

Um, uh, well, nope. But I don't usually fall asleep in my recliner and forget. help.gif

I've had a couple in the past go that long that were quite smoky, but washed down with a homebrew it works out... Not to mention, this cheese is SPICY stuff.

To answer your question, I normally don't exceed 4 hours, with 2-3 being the norm.

Haha ok, ya it happens! I bet that would be real good topping a mac and cheese or in a fajita to moderate that bold flavour. Mmmmhhhmmmm
