    I have a bunch of cheese that I want to smoke soon.  Daytime temps have been just about at freezing, 32F.  I plan on using my A-Maze-N smoker for the smoke, inside of my MES30 box -- but without the box doing any heating.

    I'm wondering if I should be concerned about the almost freezing temps -- The AMNS will only raise the temp by 5-10 degrees.  Will the cheese take to the smoke at that cool a temp?

    I did some cheese last week was only about 25 degrees out. I did the smoke for 8 hours and all turned out good i do think that the cheese gets a stronger smoke flavor if its warmer. I didn't have any problems with it freezing and i also used a maze-N smoker worked great used cherry wood.
