Now THAT'S a lot of cheese!  Do you have lots of friends and family, or are you stocking up for the winter:-}}

What was your smoke method?

Thanks. Pretty simple really. A cold front came through yesterday and assisted in my "low and slow" method. Never using any fuel source other than hardwoods, I started the heat source with pecan kindling and moved to pecan chunks, progressing to a combination of apple, cherry, and a touch of hickory. Temps never exceeded 85 degrees. Smoke time was 4 hours.

All 20 pounds are sealed in small blocks. It took an entire roll of Food Saver material just to finish the project! Should be ready by 1 December. I will give most away over the Thanksgiving Holiday...

Here is a sample pic:

Just let her watch the video that someone has a link to here.  I showed that to my wife and she said "get that, NOW".

BrdPrey -

Each 2 lb Baby Loaf was cut into thirds allowing ample penetration, i.e. each brick yielded three blocks of smoked cheese.
