I went to the The River Rat cheese store and bought some cheese. I've smoked probably 200 pounds of cheese over the years. But I think some of this cheese should be spared from the smoke.

This is ok.

This might get me strung up for smoking! I am really tempted. Wife thinks I'm crazy!

Smoke some of the curds and put them in Fries and Gravy and make yourself some Great Canadian Poutine LOL
Oh yeah, I'll be making Poutine for sure. I made that about a year ago with some smoked curds. It was fantastic.

I’d say smoke the curds and have some poutine.

As for the aged cheddar, I would enjoy it for what it is.

What I am wondering is Why are you hesitating?

Go for it!

Have you tried Great Lakes Cheese?

Especially the Adams Reserve Cheddar...

I live very close to both Clayton and Adams, but prefer Great Lakes over River Rat.

I've never smoked cheese Steve. I've had 14 year-old single malt scotch whisky a number of times, I'd tend to leave it the way it is. RAY

I'd leave the curds and the well aged alone but smoke the extra sharp. 8 and 14YO?!?!?!?! WOW. I think I now have some smoked cheddar about 5YO. Need to put more down.

I have had them as well. That company has some good cheese too.

The aged cheese is out of this world good. I went back this morning for some 16 and 18 year old. But they were out. I should have got some yesterday when they had some.
