    Bought a load of assorted tasty cheese.

    Time to make it taste better! Not sure what pellets I'll use got a fresh shipment from TJ to play with thinking between cherry and corn cob but will determine that later.

    Had one melt down,not in pic,I think it got to warm in the house and dripped some oil on the burning pellets. Someone turned the heat up in the house to 78* when I had the cheese setting in the counter to warm up. The rest looks good the half melted one will be interesting to try.

    One of the few reasons I like colder weather is for this, smoking cheese!  I did some on Saturday night since it was cold enough here in the Dallas area.  Pepper jack and cheddar this round, I have some habanero in the frig just waiting its turn in the smoke.

    A buddy of mine tried making some as well, he has a MES full of melted cheese right now...  Yep, he turned on the heat...  Trying to get a pic out of him!  [​IMG]

    What can I say DS everybody gets lucky once in a while! I like to try the flavors as you never know for sure how they taste with smoke. I was told the double Gloucester with chives had plenty of flavor already and that was a favorite of all the doubters! Now I'm crazy and did a wheel of Boursin that needed more of a rest but I may try it again with a fresher wheel.
     
  18. Looks fantastic! Bet that bacon cheddar will be great. Everything is better with bacon. I'm going to have to try smoking some cheese.

    Thanks Scott, read up on Mr. T's and many other posters great threads ask any questions and get to it! Make sure you follow the rest,it's okay to try it to taste as it ages to see the difference but it gets better with age I may look into waxing someday!
