For the love of cheese

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 

Hey All,

I noticed I was getting scary low on smoked cheese so I fired up my Amazen pellet smoker to bring order back to my universe.

 

2 lbs extra sharp orange cheddar, 1 1/2 lbs pepper jack & 2 lbs extra sharp white cheddar & stick of butter for my neighbor. Smoked about 5 hours using blended pellets.  It got a bit warm mid day for the butter so I had to pull it then put it back in for last hour as the outside temps dropped.

I just tried my first round of cheese in 70 degree weather. It's a nice looking smoke. 

 

Question did you lose any oil? and if so how much? I am guessing not or there would be no butter there....ROFLMAO, ya know forget that last question.... Nevermind! LOL

Interesting question FH, this batch went well. The outside temps were nice and cool. Howeverrrr ....

The next batch I started on a day that was forecast for cool but about 4 hours after I started smoking there was a problem. All was great when I decided to make a quick run to Wallyworld. The cheese had a light sweat going but the butter was looking good so I thought, " no problem".

When I got home I bout freaked, the outside temp had jumped 15* ( welcome to Missouri ! ), my beautiful cheese was oozing through the grates and the butter was a puddle down on top of the Amazin Smoker tray. :wife:   Might have been a blessing ha, the butter extinguished the smoker pellets thus keeping my cheese from totally running away.

I salvaged what I could of the cheese from that batch but learned a very valuable lesson.... summer approaches, smoke at night for cold smoke projects !

Drawer is packed with cheese. Waiting for the night time temperature to drop so I can smoke. Looking forward to warmer weather but not yet. Let me smoke some more cheese.

Thank ya JC ! 

I'm currently nibbling on this batch, flavor and texture came out excellent.

Times is heating up here in Missouruh so I'm afraid until I mod my smoker so my AMPS isn't directly in my smoke chamber my cheese smokin days may be limited.

I have the mod figgered out, just haven't implemented it yet. Necessity being the Mother of invention, that day rapidly approaches !
