    First time cheese smoker!

    I was tempted the other day for some smoked cheese after talking to my dad and the ol' lady. I've always wanted to smoke some cheese but assumed that I didn't have the right equipment as I have a Pit Boss 820D. I found that A-Maze-N sells the pellet tube and grabbed that and got it today. I have...

    Smoked Cheese, 10yr evolution, self-built

    When I first learned of cold smoking, I was intrigued. My buddy has a big smoker and does brisket, turkey etc, so I wanted to bring something different to the table.

    Help w/ AMNTS cold smokin in a Pit Boss pellet "grill"

    Folks, I have one of the PB 700-series models. I tried cold-smoking cheese this weekend with my 12" AMNTS, and I was disappointed with the thick, white smoke it produced and the bitter, acrid, chemical taste of the cheese after smoking. I have vacuum sealed the cheese and plan to let it mellow...

    Bacon Cheddar Scones

    I normally don't do posts of non meat recipes but this one helps me solve a problem related to my bacon production. When I smoke bacon, the trimmings and end slices are very strongly smoked. I use some of them in soups, stews and chilis but sometimes I get ahead and have a lot of trimming. I...

    I have only smoked cheese 3 times. I'm following the thread https://www.smokingmeatforums.com/threads/cheese-lots-of-pics.286031/ When I do cheese the cheddar will come out of the MES with small cracks around the edges, I assume from moisture loss. The cheese's with a higher fat/moisture do not...

    Alright, you shamed me into it....

    Geeze, smoken cheese. OK, so we had this block of Tillamook Cheese the wife got for me to shred some up, small block some up, and of course if you ask me to cut the cheese, there is a toll on the act. So I got the ends of the block (my choice), and I cubed up one of them for bite size smoked...
