Choose the type of smoker will fit your needs most often. Any smoker can have 3 or 4 charcoal briquettes going in it for a low heat source to smoke cheese. Honestly, a propane, electric or even a charcoal/stick burner smoker can have a couple of charcoals in it too provide low heat for smoking cheese.

I have been real happy with my 1-1/2 year old GOSM Big Block that I got from Amazon for $189 including shipping. It will hold as is 12 racks of ribs, or up to 12 chickens, or 4 large briskets, or at least 6 large pork butts, or 2 of the largest turkeys you can find. You can still get them for $199 from Amazon.

I have a BBQ Grillware I got at Lowe's, but when I buy another one it will be the Smoke Vault.

Ok. I did my first whole turkey today on my grillzone gas grill. Sure hope it tastes as good as it smelled. I am sending it to calif. They will have to tell me what it was like so I can make any adjustments. Tried to smoke cheese but couldn't get the temp. below 100* so I finally gave up, even raised the lid allot but still didn't work. Oh well I'll just have to wait till I get a smoker :o) Thanks kmadson

Just about any vertical smoker can smoke cheese. The problem is keeping the heat low. With that I am saying instead of using propane or electricty as a heat source; substitute a few charcoals to the bottom of your smoker. Just a few charcoal briquettes should keep your smoker at a low enough internal heat level for putting smoke to cheese.

I have a vertical 7' propane smoker I use for sausage in the winter but I have fired up just a few charcoal briquettes in the summer for smoking cheese in it. You will be surprised how much heat just a few charcoal briquettes will put out. If it gets too warm, just take a piar of tongs and remove a briqutte or two.

charcoal :o)

so do you place it in a container? Like in my Grillzone BBQ would I put the charcoal in somthing like my smoker box over the propane area and light them. I know you are rolling your eyes on this one icon_rolleyes.gificon_lol.gif setting it under the smoke box to get smoke going? How long do you smoke cheese? hour or so? Questions ,Questionsicon_smile.gif kmadson

Yes that's what you would do. Don;t forget to add the wood though,lol.

Figure 45 minutes to an hour and I'd start with a fruit wood like apple and see how you like it. Very easy to overdo the smokey taste with cheese, it soaks it right up.
