33 degrees and windy. Rolling Hickory pellets over 1/2 block of Sharp White Cheddar on the Weber Kettle for 3 or 4 hours. Just love the Hickory!

If I wasn't under the weather I would have a batch going. White cheddar is great. I prefer it over yellow. It seems to be smoother. That's going to be good!

Man bet that's gonna be good. I haven't got to smoke any yet this year but with an inch of snow on the ground and temps around 16 tonight would be a perfect time!

I saw where it is very chilly

Vol, I heard it was cold up there. We missed a little snow by just a couple of degrees early this morning.

Thanks. Yeah, just a bug. And of course I get it on my 2 days off! If you like the white cheddar. Then you should try the seriously sharp cheddar. It is very good IMHO.

Yep! Most of the cheese I do is with Hickory. Apple or Alder wood gives a pleasant flavor as well.

How long do you let it mellow after smoking it? The last batch I made it was way too smokey even after wrapped in plastic wrap for 2 weeks. It was brutally smokey, I like heavy smoke and I couldn't eat it for about a month.

Nice looking cheese. Some good color was taken on. I'm a fan of white cheddar also.

Point for sure

It sits in refrigerator over night. I then vac pack and put the cheese in my other little fridge for a long rest. I will try some after about a month just to check out how it is coming along. It's usually minimum 6 months before I give some away to friends or partake myself. I have some from last January that is still in the fridge resting up.
