Cheese - Smoked with Motorcycle tailpipe.

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 

After looking at the A-Maze-N smoker posts, I decided i needed to do some cheese.  Being that I never do things the easy way (ie actually buy the advertised items), I did some surface area and volume calculations and found a  motorcycle tail pipe baffle, and some apple and hickory sawdust online, and decided to smoke up some cheese.


Here in SC it's too freaking hot to do cold smoking during the daylight ( the cheese would melt just being outside), so I'm letting it smoke overnight in my gas Grill.

  • Mild Cheddar
  • Gouda


Tailpipe smoker and cheese


The tailpipe baffle is 1.5 inches in diameter, 24 inches long made of perforated stainless steel.  You can see the wisps of smoke coming off the pipe.

I am learning.  I didn't have consistent sawdust coverage in the pipe, so it went out some time in the middle of the night. I shook it all down to one side and relit it, and pulled the cheese out a couple of hours ago.  I also moved the pipe directly under the cheese.  oops mistake - the monterey jack melted a little bit, but it has some awesome brown smoke coloring. so maybe it's not a mistake.


Here's the cheese as I pulled it out.

Here it is all wrapped and resting

well most motorcycles you hear have baffles in the exhaust pipe that tone down the loudness. Pipes without baffles are torture on the ears and illegal in most places because of how loud they are. Alot of custom bikes with crazy looking exhaust don't have baffles and you'll know it when they start up.
