Just another smoked cheese thread

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
This is my second round smoking some cheese. First round wasn't enough for the people that I'm putting together Christmas baskets for so I'm in for more. Some sharp cheddar, Mont Jack, pepper jack, jalapeno hivarti, and dill hivarti. Been going 3 hours at the point in the action shots. Smoking with pittmaster and pecan dust. Going prefect as usual with the dust.

So we're done. Just under 4 hours smoking time...was getting tired. Honestly with the pecan in there I think they could have taken another hour without any trouble at all. They're sitting on the rack and in the fridge until tomorrow afternoon when I'll be doing final taste tests and packaging.

Thanks! No issues with melting at all thankfully. I was smoking in my garage and it's like 40 in there so. The havarti was the softer of the cheeses and still no melting which I was slightly worried about. I tasted it this morning and I've decided I like the spicier cheeses the best smoked. Absolutely amazing!

Ha thanks! I'd just cleaned 3 of the racks because I was smoking the cheese so. I've yet to actually wipe down the interior though.
