    Well, here we go again. Last time this season as it is warming up a bit now.
    The cheese got a bit oily while smoking, and just a little soft.
    Should last P1030365.JPG P1030366.JPG until summer...

    Looks great. I like the grill marks. Lunch for me today was some smoked colby, homemade summer sausage and Ritz crackers. I'm going through my stash pretty quickly and will need to do some more before summer.

    Looks good! Gotta do it while you can!
    What's your favorite? I've become really partial to Mozzarella. I keep it in a wine cooler and I wish it were bigger...

    I like them all. Sharp cheddar (white) is really good. I like the mozzarella cheese sticks. Based on my little experience, it looks like one month of aging is the minimum required for the flavor to mellow out, and soak through.

    Uh, no. It wouldn't last around me...

    I'm a cheese hound.
    Wish I was your neighbor... ;)

    Just had new heavy duty casters welded onto the smoker. I gave some smoked cheese to Bruce, my welder, and he thought it was awesome. Sent a package home with him to share with his wife.
    Bruce is a super nice guy, and I invited him up the next time we do a rib fest!

    Nice variety!
  9. Cheese looks great! I recently did a big batch myself.
    How long did you smoke it for?

    6 hours. Yes, I know that is a long time. We will see how it turns out.

    6 hrs is not a long time at all.....
    Don't let anyone talk you into getting it out until at least a month has passed, though ;)

    I did cheat, and tried some from 3 weeks ago. After tasting, my clear favorite is Jalapeno.

    Nice batch of cheese and good color. If you like the jalapeno you should try Cabot's Habanaro.

    I just picked up some of the Cabot's Habanaro at Costco. Excellent flavor and a heck of a kick!
  15. Cabot Hot Habanero is by far my favorite cheese. I smoked two blocks of it last weekend I cant wait to bust into it.
