My first attempt at smoked cheese.

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 

I've read through several cheese smoking threads on here and thought I'd give it a shot.

 

I picked up a tube deal and some apple pellets and froze a couple large trays of ice. Since I really have no idea of how successful this will be, I told the wife to buy some inexpensive sharp cheddar and some pepper jack for a first attempt.  

 

Components: 

 

 

All set up:

 

 

 

 

I'll go out here in a minute and check pit temp. *fingers crossed* 110.gif

Well, so good so far. I'm going to leave this on till around 5 or so. Both the pepper jack and cheddar are taking on a real nice color.

 

Also, these pellets put out a nice amount of smoke and its clean. Thumbs Up

 

So far the interior temp of the kamodo has stayed in the upper 70's.

Okay, so I just pulled the cheese off the kamodo. Dang, I don't think these done all that well. First off they sweat a bit, secondly they smell like a tire fire. In fact they're stinking up the house. I'll vacuum pack them here in a minute, but I don't think this worked that well. :redface:

Just let them rest a month.   They will mellow out.

I'm hoping. Yeah, I bought a much cheaper tube than the AMZ unit. Not sure yet I'll use this much. We'll see I guess. :redface:

Who is the supplier for the square tube? - Disregard, it's smokinCube.

The cheese will mellow out after a couple of weeks.

 

Don't know how long you smoked it for, but for me 2 - 2 1/2 hours is plenty.

 

Also let them dry out uncovered on a drying rack in the fridge overnight before vac packing.
