  2. My go-to blend for cold smoking cheese is 50% apple and 50% maple.  My second go-to blend is 50% apple and 50% pecan.  Depends what I have on hand and the kind of mood I'm in basically....and what I feel  like smelling for 4 hours!  LOL

    This is a preference item.

    We like a 50/50 of Maple and Cherry.

    Good luck and good smoking.

    I am sticking with the crowd and going for Apple for tomorrow's batch. I have a batch of Pear drying in the basement that will get a chance in early March. Thinking of trying it with a softer cheese or cutting it with 25% Apple.

    For you folks using Maple, any particular variety you find works best? Anybody try plum?

    I used hickory and oak pellets on my last smoke.

    I'm going to order some Bourbon Barrel pellets from Todd and try them next time.

    Bourbon barrell are good. real slow burn.
     
  17. Being new to this, all these ideas help tremendously!  Sounds like Apple, Pecan and Cherry are the winners. Any woods to stay away from?
     
  18. I would stay away from mesquite on cheese. It hits anything you smoke with a heavy smoke flavor. I prefer hickory and apple mix on cheese. It works well for me.[​IMG]
     
  19. Plum. But I like most of them. Peach seems to not have an unique taste. Wine barrel is very nice too.
