A smoker load of Cheese

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Today i've got a smoker load of cheese to do. Some for myself, some for friends and family. Heres the line-up: 4 blocks of whole milk mozzerella:4 blocks of pepperjack: 1 block of provolone. Each weighs approx. around 54 pounds!!PDT_Armataz_01_05.gif

Each block I am cutting into 6 bricks,to expose more surface area of the cheese. And to be more managable to vacum pack.

I decided to cut up some of the pepperjack to see how smokey flavored the little cubes would get.

Here Mrs SOB helped me get the smoker loaded.

Used every rack I had...gonna have to get more someday.

I'm trying my new Woodchips burner that I posted about yesterday...using the large one burning in both directions. I should be able to get 4 hours of smoke if needed.

Just light the candle

Put it under the burner for about a minute then blow out the candle.

After it is smoking good, put it in the smoker. sorry old pic I'll try to get a new one.

Be back with more later

3 1/2 hours of hickory smoke produced with my new woodchip burner.
The burner worked perfectly. Couldn't have been easier. I'm really gonna like this thing. Any way on to the QVIEW!! I'll post before and after pics so you can see the color change.
