    Want to smoke cheese, What is a decent smoker for a beginner like me to start with. Would like to try hot flavored cheese. What kind could I use and how do I go about it.
    Any help naturally is appreciated. Thank you.

    I like smoked Jalapino cheddar cheese or peperoni cheddar cheese. It's real good on crackers or in chilli.

    for the most part, smoking cheese needs to be done in a cold smoker, that means 100 degrees or LESS..... cheese usually does not take that long either, check out the section on cheese on the forums for more help. I've recently modified my old luhr jensen big chief into a cold smoker box feed by my masterbuilt smoker primarily for doing cheese and other cold smoke items.....however by the old luhr jensen book, if you keep the box the smoker came in you can actually use that on top of the big chief as a cold box.......but honestly smoking is much more then just doing a few chunks of cheese!!!!!!
