    Been a busy weekend. Did my first cheese smoke today. I decided to try Medium cheddar, sharp cheddar and Colby/Monterrey jack with hickory.


    AMNPS loaded and ready!!


    Three hours later!!!


    Now the wait.

  5. Great lookin cheese there Dennis. I love using the AMNPS to cold smoke my cheese.

    With that and the MES 40, I get almost perfect results every time. (you notice I said almost) lol.

    Happy Smokin

    Great looking cheese!

      When you start eating the cheese after aging and if you notice the center doesn't have the flavor you want, try slicing the cheese into 4 oz. pieces before smoking.  It seems that i get better smoke penetration when smoking smaller pieces of cheese.
