First cheese

  1. Well I tried some cheese a few days ago and so far so good.
    It’s a little heavy on the smoke should mellow a bit after a few more days
    I did some Gouda, Monterey Jack w/habanera, Havarti and Cheddar.
    I alternated between Hickory and Alder.
    Tastes good to me



    Left the door open a bit so the temp would be OK ( stayed around 80 )

    looks good trev..........tho you are in for a surprise........all the cheese i have EVER done.........gets stronger, the longer it sits......hehehe

    the softer cheeses, like your two whites, takes smoke well.........so shorter smoking times are called for........while cheddars takes a bit longer

    just did some mozz. and cheddar jack, earlier this week.........i took the mozz off after a 1.5 hours.........and the cheddar bout 2.5 hours...........tho we like a heavier smokey flavor

    LOVE your smoker.......tho i was abit surprised that you had to crack the door..........must not be a digi bradely then?
     
  3. Its not the Digital
    I bought the Canadian Tire Special for $270 someting
    Ya I did over smoke it a bit
    Bt its still enjoyable
    Trial and error is the way to go
