Last cheese smoke til the fall?

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
Ernestina just informed me that we are down to our last pack of smoked cheese. She will be picking up 2 five pound blocks today. Temperatures are supposed to be in the mid-high 70's all next week...with our Egg sitting in the sun I hope I have not missed my opportunity. Suppose I could drag my drum into the shade and use that. Couple bricks in the bottom to put the AMNPS in line with the intakes. Even though I have only been smoking cheese for a few months would hate to go without it lol....

Looks like a good start, how did they turn out, did you get some nice color on them? You will have a nice wait time now

Pepperjack picked up a lot of color. Cheddar got a fair amount as well. We try to let them rest at least 14 days prior to shredding, looks like the first pack will be getting used on Monday...

I like the way you stacked it up! How about some after shots?

Certainly filled up the BGE!  Like the rack.  I have a couple more weeks waiting on my first cheese.

Will try to remember when we start using them. I wanted to get 10 pounds in the Egg...

Racks are cookie cooling racks from the Dollar store. Wife has yet to find another rectangular set, only round singles

We are staying light until 9 or so. Where my smoking equipment is sitting has very little shade. At 8 p.m. the temperature in the UDS is 120 or so and the Egg is a bit higher. Although with my insomnia problems I suppose cold smoking at 2 a.m. may be possible....lol....

Little different climate, I think I could cold smoke most nights if we aren't in a heat wave by putting things on at 1030 or so before going to bed.
