Two batches of cheese for the smoker. Batch 1 was done yesterday...and batch 2 is just about done. I struggled today to keep my temperature under control. The bright sun is heating up my smoker to the 80s!

Batch 1 (Provolone/Horseradish Cheddar/Colby Jack/ Sharp Cheddar/ Swiss/Pepper Jack)

Batch 2 (Montery Jack/Horseradish Cheddar/Habanero Cheddar/Muenster/Cabot Seriously Sharp)

Also have a pastrami going in another smoker. That will be smoked for about 5 hours and then off to the SV for 24hrs.

Looks like a fun day with plenty of good eats. I'm jealous.

Point for sure

Thank you! The offset smoker was being used as a cold smoker with the cheese. I’m able to cold smoke cheese in slightly warmer temperatures because the amnps doesn’t share the same space like it does with the propane cabinet one.

I have a lot of cheese to do this year, so best to get cracking on it early.

Thanks Chris.

No need to be jealous, the cheese is being smoked for someone else.

Everything looks great!
Al
Thanks Al!

Looks good. Reminds me that I am all out of smoked cheese. Now that the weather is cooling I need to get a batch going. Also, in my opinion S/V is the perfect way to finish pastrami after smoking.

Thanks Braz. SV is nice too because all the prep work is done up front and then you could just forget about it for a day.

Nice!
A heads up,the rub is sugary - as in it can scorch if used to pan fry etc.
Thanks for the heads up on the rub, never had there’s yet but it’s a welcome surprise

Oh man you are in Sause heaven!!!!

I just bought 5 bottles this past week to have as last minute Christmas gifts... or to keep if there are no last minute Christmas gifts needed to be given :D
I knew you guys liked the stuff from being on previous threads. Good idea on the last minute Christmas gifts, it really would make an excellent gift, I love the sauce.

And if they’re naughty... “No sause for you!!” and take it back.

Damn Joe cant believe I missed this. That cheese looks great and really took in some nice color! I've got some I need to get going here in the next couple weeks for personal use and Christmas presents.

Isn't there just something satisfying about having 2 smokers going at once? :emoji_thumbsup:

My cut is on the right where it’s not lined up. The rest is for my brother. Didn’t expect this to become a business!

Looks awesome!! Used Inkbird IRF-4S?
Yes, it was the one offered at a deep discount for SMF memebers.

It’s a good unit! The RF signal picks up anywhere in my house, great battery life...no complaints!

My next inkbird purchase will be an instant read thermometer.
