How to smoke FRESH mozzarella?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

I was given a couple one-pound pieces of fresh mozzarella from a local organic dairy farm.  The cheese was 2 days old when I picked it up.  I smoked it with alder for 2.5 hrs.  I vacuum sealed it for 20 days.  When I tasted it, it was NASTY!  Bitter, ashy smoke taste.

 

Has anyone had any success smoking fresh mozzarella?

 

Any tips would be appreciated.

 

Thanks,

Mike

Was the taste test after 20 days? If so back off on the smoke. Did you have TBS or white smoke? It only takes a couple of minutes to get bitter smoke with white smoke.

Happy smoken.

I also tried the fresh mozzarella and had the same results. All other cheeses have come out excellent
