This is my first go at smoking cheese and to my amazement it went really well! I bought pepper jack, colby jack, and sharp cheddar. I used pecan wood for a mild flavor with hard wood lump as the fuel.I tried to keep the temps of the cooker to 75-85. I smoked the cheese for 3 hours as the first hour I did not ...I felt had enough smoke. I vacuum sealed the cheese and tried to wait 2 weeks to sample but I had to open a few packages for the family to try and....they loved it all.

That's great Firemanman. Once you have discovered the secret of home smoked cheese you will never go back to shop bought. Looks great.
Thanks alot! Now I have to go to the store!
 Looked great. I hard part is the wait. I have 6 blocks in the fridge going on 2 months rest, so time to do another batch. The key is staying ahead of the game with that CRAck cheese. Nice looking stuff and glad it turned out for you. is reader supported and as an Amazon Associate, we may earn commissions from qualifying purchases.
