13 pounds in the MES

  1. Smoked up about 13 pounds of cheeses in the MES last night.

    Didn't have room for the Gouda, oh well I still have some left over chilling out since March. It will go in on the next round.

    2 hours in hickory, rotated the trays bottom to top every half hour and flipped everything over after 1 hour. It stayed at 51* for the entire time, didn't budge a degree. AMNPS and mailbox mod made it possible. A full smoker is a happy smoker.

    Sorry I became intoxicated by the smokey cheese aromas when I brought it all inside to vacuum pack and forgot to take pics of the finished product!

    Trying to get into the cheese smoking. I have a mes and and AMPS. What is the mailbox mod?
  9. The easiest way to explain would be to do a search on here for it. there are dozens of threads and tutorials, etc. Unless it is very cold to start out with, cold smoking with your AMNPS inside the MES will eventually raise the temp enough to start melting cheese. You will likely want to start around 32* inside the smoker if you don't have a cold smoke attachment like a mailbox, etc.
