A couple nights ago we had some unseasonably cool weather here in S. E. Missouri so I took advantage of the cold to slip in another cheese smoke before our summer heat is full upon us.
Wanted a good variety to serve as appetizers at our upcoming wedding. Selected a block each of Pepper Jack, Jalapeno, Marble Jack, Muenster, Extra Sharp Cheddar and as an experiment i threw some Mozzy string cheese into the batch.
Of course, I can't do a cold smoke without tossing in a couple cubes of butter
Even though it was a cool afternoon I waited until night when the temps got as low as they could, about 45* F. I used about a half a tray of blended pellets in my AMPS which makes a nice overnight smoke without producing an overbearing smoke flavor.
Vac Packed and ready for the big day.
I still have to make the Venison Summer Sausage, smoke the beans & salmon and BBQ the chickens for the feast to come. Thank God I have 2 months left to prep !
I'm sure this is a common problem but, I feel I haven't bucked up enough cheese to get me through the hot summer months.
This is my total stash so far Unlike most folks, I'm praying for a cool summer !
Happy Smokin' !!!!!
