Ok...................I am totally hooked on cold smoking cheese.  Did two batches in two days.......does this mean I might need some sort of "cheese therapy" lol.  Not only did I cold smoke another batch of cheese, I cold smoked some butter and kosher salt.  I used the smoked butter to make a batch of bbq sauce and oh my Lord it is delicious.  Now I need to fire up my smoker and make some ribs so I can tryout my bbq sauce!! Here's a few pics of my cold smoking project yesterday. Thinking about smoking my spiced nuts recipe for the holiday......they are great with cocktails.  Happy Holiday Season everyone!  Josie

Good looking butter and cheese


Butter is good for garnishing dishes before serving. If you cook with it the smoke flavour gets lost. I smoke butter for a local restaurant. The same goes for smoked salt - you get a bigger impact from it if you use it as a condiment on the table rather than using it in the cooking.

Everything looks great Josie!

Looks like your on a roll now!

The weather is supposed to cool down here Friday.

So I'm planning on smoking some cheese & lox.

I'm out of lox & only have 1 block of cheese left from last winter.

Have a great holiday!

ok thanks for the tip Wade.  Your butter looks great.  When I made my bbq sauce and finishing sauce, I added my smoked butter at the end so it had a very nice smoky flavor.

wish it were warmer here.....I don't like it when it's this chilly.  On the brighter side I've been able to cold smoke lots of cheese!  Have a Happy Holiday Season nepas.
