    Some great experiments with cheese, I LOVE the thought of the hot chipotle one not to mention letting one sit in jalapeno juices overnight.

    A whole nother lever? Well I don't know about that LOL but it should be interesting. After doing the soak in the jalapeno juice, I'm wondering how effect a brine would have on cheese. When I removed that one from the smoker, the smoke smell was there, as well as a strong jalapeno smell. When we get back from ice fishing, I'm going to start some more cheese smokes with some off the wall methods.

    Well its been 2 weeks. Took the cheese on our ice fishing trip. Here are the results of this batch. All the cheese were in smoke for 4 hours. Both the Gouda cheeses, for as long as they were in, did not have a very noticeable smoke flavor. The bare pepper jack had a subtle smoke flavor and the one with the paprika/chile powder on it was very good. The colby that I let sit in the jalapeno juice for a day had a very nice kick to it. I surprised to see just how well that juice sank into the cheese. I think if I do it again, I will only keep it in there for 12 or less hours. The Colby with the Chipotle hot sauce was fantastic. Going to start thinking of other "brines" to use for cheese here soon.[​IMG]

    Meat Hunter,
    That cheese looks great![​IMG]

    Keep it away from the ice hole, or keep a club handy. Muskies would love that cheese.[​IMG]
