I'm confused.  Why is the purpose of the soldering iron in the picture? Are you using it to produce smoke somehow?  If so, do you close the door of your smoker on the cord?

It almost looks like you have an A-Maze-N sawdust smoker underneath that soldering iron.

Thats not an A-Maze-N smoker  ...  yes, the soldering iron makes the chips smoke.  The cord runs through a vent, so the door does close normally.

That is some mighty fine looking cheese there cajun_1. never done Mesquite with cheese, but sounds good I'll have to tyr that. I'm getting ready to use some Oak Wine Barrel on some cheese. The waiting is the hardest part for me. 2 weeks is a long time when I'm waiting for smoked cheese, but well worth the wait. Enjoy and your going to get

Actually still have some from a previous smoke so I'm not completly out  ...  these could probably sit in the fridge for a month before I have to tear into it.
