I meant to post this in April when I did my first cheese smoke, but forgot until today, as I'm getting ready to start my second batch of cheese.

I started out with 2 lbs of plain old Mozzarella and Cheddar

I used my AMNPS with apple pellets inside my MES with no heat on. I put a piece of foil over the AMNPS to try to keep it from getting too strong, but ended up taking it off later in the smoke.

After about 3 hours I took them out and then vac sealed them

Thank you! The pizza is what I was most excited for and it did not disappoint. I have a wider variety of cheese in the box as I type this. I'm hoping to have some good pics of those.

Thank you, I really appreciate all the positive comments. Everyone here has inspired me over the years. I'm still a novice with smoking, but love experimenting (and eating LOL).

Thanks to the mods who moved this thread here. I didn't realize there was a smoked cheese section; I thought I checked. Anyways, good info on these other threads here, thanks!

Great job on all of it. Man I bet that pizza was off the hook using smoked mozzarella!

Keep an eye on the prices of the big lugs of cheese at your local grocery store, and buy the heck out of them when they're on sale. I buy like crazy when my Dillon's has the 2 lb blocks for $5.99 each. My problem always ends up I have too much cheese to fit in the smoker! I have about 40 lbs sitting in my garage fridge now, vacuum sealed and ready for every recipe that calls for cheese. They make amazing gifts at Christmas too, by the way! I've done cherry, hickory, and apple, the hickory was by far my favorite. Makes the greatest mac and cheese ever.

I saw someone mentioned gifts a while back (may have been you). I'm thinking I might just do that. My family loves homemade stuff like that, so the in-laws for sure would love it! It's starting to hook me in, and the wife is on board, so I foresee doing this a lot more often. Posting today's pics in a new thread.

Also, thanks for the mac n cheese tip. I could definitely see doing that!!

Nice work on the cheese.

Cannot beat smoked cheese, so tasty. We do a lot of cheddar, but one of our favorites is Jarlsberg.
