    Hi folks - I'm new here but thought I'd post some of my past adventures in cooking. This cheese smoke was actually done last year at about this time, and I'm still enjoying what is left of the Gouda. It was cold outside (19F) and the intent was to do cold smoked cheese for the Christmas season. The lineup:
    • Gouda, Manchego, goat, and a couple kinds of cheddar.
    • Wood: alder
    • Smoke time: 2 hours
    Cutting method: thinner chunks this time (1 inch thick) for better smoke penetration

    Smoker: original Bradley 4 rack with 4 jerky racks added for 8 racks total

    Because the goat is so moist, it was ready to eat immediately (doesn't sound so good but is really delicious).  The smoke was light because the temperature did not go much above 50-60F.

    One can tell you are new here: You don't seem to care about food safety- eating year old cheese. Before you get banned for crass food safety infraction please provide an address so we can arrange safe disposal of the old cheese.

    Nice pile. Welcome to SMF.
  8. PZ,

    Or you could drop some off at Hudson's in CDL and boost their already top 5 Burger....[​IMG]
