So, I have done a lot of cheese over the years with great results mainly from the fantastic people on this site, Thanks to all
This one I went for color and not time. I will need to say thank you to Mr T for his knowledge in this experiment.
I have never tried a citrus wood on smoking cheese, and I found some Orange pellets made by BBQ Delight so I thought I would give it a shot. Smoked this in the MES 30 with the Mailbox mod.
These pellets do burn faster that the normal in this experiment,,, usually I can get about a 9-10hr burn time in the amps but this time she burned out in just 8hrs....
Well here are the players on this batch,,,,
Spendy little bags,,,$4.99 a bag!!!
Some different flavors of cheese that I have not had before... Can't wait to try the Horseradish and Pesto Jack
A few more players
So into the smoker they go,,, had them in for 8hrs - smoker never went ov 64*IT and outside temp was about 55* and rainy.
As you can see, I flipped one of the pepper jacks over and big color difference
Colby Jack flipped,, can't tell from this pic but it took on some color also.
more good color
Well, I took them out and let sit on counter for about 1 1/2 then in the fridge for a overnight stay,,,
I will vac pac tonight and test in two weeks,,,, If too strong I guess I can make casseroles or mac and cheese LOL
I think it will be good.
A full smoker is a happy smoker
