    Sounds like as good as an excuse as any to smoke some cheese!!








    GOODNESS I just love cold smoked cheese, these were in Hickory for 4.5 hours..then vacuumed sealed and put in the waiting refrigerator.. 11 days hard to wait, but its soooo worth it.

    Thanks for the look,

    Perfect looking Cheese, Rich !!!

    Thanks for showing!

  9. Winter - must be a state of mind as that cheese wont make it past the end of the month as good as it looked.  Seeing all the recent cheese threads I had to do some yesterday.  I have a few sacrifice chunks that are offered up as a diversion from the vacuum sealed far it keeps them safe (until the sacrificial chunks are gone) for the hold time.

    We just got a Cajun Injection Smoker and have been doing all types of meat with success.  I have never smoked cheese.  I live in Vegas so I have to wait til November so it doesn't melt just being outside.  Could you share the process of smoking cheese please?

  18. Smokin Vegas and Ejbreeze, here is some info on smoking cheese. I've been reading up a lot on it...It's been getting down into the 40's here at night, I'm stoked! Just gotta order my A-Mazn-Smoker!

    Good luck and happy smoking!
  19. Thanks.  Over 95 degrees here today so I think I need to wait for some cooler temps.  Or I could just eat some of yours....[​IMG]

    Sorry for the hijack AlaskanBear.

    Hey guys here's a recent one I did.  Just fill your water pan with a block of ice or a big pile of ice cubes and you should be fine. You want the cheese to sweat a little anyways. Do your smoke at night when it's cooler out. Only need 2-3 hours of smoke. Here's cubes instead of blocked ice.
