    Well I got home for some time off and away we went for a bike trip. Just got home and have bacon in pops wet brine and thought I am going to do the cheese as well. We have some we bought on a trip to the US last yr I have been waiting to do as well as some stuff we picked up the last few months. Here is what we are doing.
    Here it is blocked and on an oven rack. Still have to build racks for inside of the smoke house.

    Finished smoking 6 hrs in smokehouse using 2 AMNPS as the bacon was going. Here it is pulled and ready to vac seal.

    We used cherry pellets from BBQ delite, Ran out of Todd's pellets and hard to get up here. I have to say we tried some of each before vac sealing to put away and Wow it was good. I have the wife convinced on the smoked just about everything now. Glad I tried it, now looking for more to do on those sparse days off... lol. Thx for looking.

    Good looking cheese Charlie, they took on a nice color. We're still a month or so away for temps to be cool enough for a cheese smoke here.

    Point for sure.

    That looks great . Nice job . I've got a hunk of Motz that's 18 months in the fridge . Might open it up tomorrow .
  15. Awesome! Was there any prep other than slicing an putting it in the smoker with the ANMPS?

    Thx a bunch everyone, I appreciate the comments and likes. It was a great turn out for us so very happy. A definite must again.
    No not really any other prep. Just had a cooler day than usual with some rain to finally bring the temps down. We were doing a bunch of bacon as well so it just all worked out.

    If you can get your hands on some of those mozzarella cheese sticks, smoke those too. You can make any size snack pack you like.

    I'm officially jealous. I love me some smoked cheese, and i bought a amaze tube smoker recently to make my own, but I'm in the same situation as some of the others here, waaay too hot to try any cold smokes at my house. Probably at least a month away.
