Can you smoke a hard cheese like parmesan?
Check out this link. I make some of my own cheeses and buy my supplies from this place. I like the pics of the cold smoking setups.
Yes you can smoke parmesan, I've done a few chunks and it was awesome.
Now smoked Parm sounds great to me. I bet it can be good too.
You can pretty much smoke any cheese.
Does it hold up to temps better than cheddar? It's so blinking hot here that cheddar/mozarella would melt just sitting in a cold smoker.
It will sweat, but it does hold up better than mozz. Gosh, any cheese holds up better than mozz, I can look at wrong and it melts.
Squirrel, I'm sure if you looked at me, I would melt as well!
Awww, that is so sweet! AK1!
I just pulled a wedge of parmesan smoked with cherry using my new a-maze-n smoker. Delicious!!! I'll let it rest for a week or so (I have to go out of town or it wouldn't last!)
Dont forget the pics - I am gatherin a group of cheeses for a smoke in the next couple of weeks
are on the list so far -
If I can find some affordable reggiano will add that too
I've got cheese blocks in the frig waiting for the temperatures to go down here. We've had two weeks of 95-100 F outside during the day, and hardly lower than 80F at night.
I have a variety of sawdust to use in my A-Maze-N smoker, and will have to restrain myself from putting all the cheese on at once so that I can test them each out. Got Oak wine barrel, oak whiskey barrel, peach, hickory and maple. Can't wait, but I think that these temps are too high -- even with ice blocks.
