Well we were getting low on some smoked cheese and after a week long rat race to get end of the year stuff taken care of it was also time to relax and cross a couple things off the need to try list! The nice thing about Iowa in January...perfect cheese smoking weather!

Our new cheese cutting board is just too cool!

Not a wide variety but needed more cheddar and mozzarella smoked, and added some Muenster cheese as well. Also heard how good Kerry gold butter is smoked so... why not?

To go along in the smoke... a tray of paprika.

Temps ran about 72 degrees F and would drop to about 56 when I opened door to stir paprika every 30 minutes. Nice tbs coming out

Used apple in amnps and about 4 1/2 hours smoke time. Let rest in fridge overnight... dang did it smell good!

Of course with all the smoked cream cheese going on it was time to give it a go also. Did two blocks, used two new rubs my friend Keith 912smoker 912smoker sent to us.

Haven't had them very long but they are both great! The steak seasoning is prolly 1/4 gone already.

This turned out amazing! And was really good with some pepper jelly on a cracker

Of course being new years weekend I had to have snacks while waiting on the smoker...so ground round on saltiness with onion, salt and pepper

And last but not least ... TulsaJeff TulsaJeff recipe for smoked trail mix! After he forcefully made me watch this video over and over...JK! But saw it and had to make it.

Added 1 tbsp of cholula hot sauce. Jeff's recipe said 2 to 4 tbsp but had never tried it before so went light. And the finished pic

It turned out really good! Thanks Jeff!

I feel a little bad cuz I never watched the peach dump cake video, so can't make it. I think it was SmokinVOLfan SmokinVOLfan that mentioned he could make it with his eyes closed . Best I could do was I peach booze (peach dump cake for the chewing impaired)! These lovely marinated peaches you could dump down your throat. But highly suggest no driving after consuming!

Looks like a successful day! Everything looks awesome, real tasty! I’m a fan of liquid deserts as well, we have to choose the calories wisely! Now that temp dropped here snd snow started falling, I need to get the cheese run too and catch up!

Nice job indeed. That cream cheese looks ever so yummy. I assume it was smoked at a higher temp than your regular cheese and butter?

Wow! Great stuff right there! Everything looks good!

What temperature did you smoke that cream cheese at?
Thank you, I appreciate that! I think it was around 200 to 225...did it new years eve so might have been some fluid intake going on! It was smoked along with the snack mix so I was opening the door every 20 to 30 minutes to stir that.

All looks great! I've got 6 blocks of cream cheese that I'm going to do this weekend.
Thanks Steve! It was fun doing the cheese finally! So many different ways to try!

Looks like a successful day at the smoker! Load my plate with everything except whatever the hell is on that cracker lol
Thanks Jake! Guess it must be more of a local thing. I actually called into our small town grocery store to reserve some...they were in the process of grinding another batch.

I know this is nothing for some people, but here in the DC area it is…..for my family whose only known SoCal weather it definitely is! We’ll keep the snow for a bit Ryan, my kids are enjoying this new thing for them, but fond memory of my youth, called “Snow Day”

Thank you, I appreciate it! And yes, I smoked it with the snack mix so about 200 to 225.

I’ve been wanting to try a block of smoked cream cheese with pepper jelly. Yours looks delicious!
Thank you! It was delicious with some pepper jelly! Only problem is we didn't have much pepper jelly left.

But do know our time will come.
