Hello! I have been reading for a while, but just joined. I’m smoking yo in Ontario (in a thunderstorm) and wondering about cold smoking with an offset. I came up with this to get some smoke on to my wife’s homemade cheese. Any tips?

The easiest way to smoke cheese in an offset is to get a pellet tube, fill it with pellets, light it up & put it in your firebox. The only heat generated will come from the smoldering pellets.

As long as you can keep it under 80 degrees you should be fine, you dont want your cheese to start sweating

Thanks for the advice. I’ve been thinking about one of those for a while.

The 80 degrees was tricky. I was smoking some beef ribs and thought turning the chimney would keep the heat down in the box, but it was tricky to keep it under 100 when the smoker was at 225.
