    I got the itch for a cold smoke so I rounded up some cheese. I grabbad some habanero cheddar along with a block of regular cheddar and some monterey jack. The hab. cheddar has a serious bite and figured a little smoke would just make it better


    They smoked for a couple hours at temps between 75-95. The pic doesn't do it justice. There was a nice color change and a great smoky smell. Now they are gonna hang out in the fridge for a couple days before I dig in.

    Love that smoked cheese!
    Bet that habanero cheddar is going to be really good with the smoke flavor.

    Thanks. I know I have been absent lately. The wife and I have been busy at home with a new baby. I have spent time on another site and realized I have been neglecting this one a little. Thanks for the welcome back.

    They were great. I snacked on a fair amount of all 3 with crackers and beer. The last third of each block got sliced, vac packed, then frozen. I have plans for the cheddar to go on a pulled pork bbq pizza this weekend.
