    Here is the bounty of my first cold smoke!! We have sharp cheddar, colby jack, and aged swiss.

    Was smoked using a cardboard box, tin can and a soldering iron, came out pretty good if you ask me!! We used Cherry chips for the wood.

    *note* the swiss did have an even color to it (though slightly darker on the corners) but for some reason the picture makes it look uneven??

    So what do you guys think??

    Thanks everyone!! We cheated and tried a small sliver off the end (hey we had to) since it was our first cheese!! It is already tasty, can't wait to see what it's like in a few weeks!!

    And I'm thinking more will be done Sunday when we go back to the grocery store!

    Looks good. The hardest part is waiting. We never use to wait we would eat it all right away. But it does mellow out a lot if you let it rest.

    Did you use a flash?  Sometimes the flash causes close up things to get washed out in color.

    I'm on like my 4th batch since this original post, I have modified the box to include a dryer vent and a fan, so I can smoke in the house! No worse than a wood burning stove!

    Looking good, I have found that if you want a heavier smoke flavor, all you have to do is use a "family size" can!!
