I had smoked some sharp chedder cheese this past winter. I think the temp was about 5 degrees above zero. I thought the cheese tasted great, but other people who tried it thought it was too smokey. I also spoke to one of my local butchers, and he told me that they make an air conditioned smoker just to smoke cheese, due to the fact that cheese has a low melting temp. When I smoked my cheese, last winter, I used a copy of the Smoke Daddy smoke gun, as I was expermenting with cold smoking.

I think if your smoker is below about 90 degree you'll be fine. They say it helps to set out your cheese to get to room temp. prior to smoking.
Let us know how it turns out.

I mostly do mine in the winter (think Maine in winter) and try not to let the smoker go above 100. I use a lil chief for my cheese- just a note also I fill a large glass bowl with ice or snow and put it under the cheese to help keep it cool

As long as your cheese aint frozen youll be OK.

in my experience there is no temp that is too cold as long as you can make smoke - in fact, the colder he better.

last winter i smoked a lot of cheese w/my little chief at 22 degrees below zero (not ****ing wind chill) and it was excellent stuff.

Smoked some sharp chedder 3 weeks ago. Smoke house temp was 80 degrees smoked for about 3 hours cheese got great. Used smoke guns, very little heat produced from these guns.
