    Here is the deal, I am wanting to get into snack stick making.  Cheese and sticks go together like PB&J.

    So I figured string cheese will work good with sticks.

    First time smoking string cheese AND using oak pellets on cheese.

    Sorry for the bad pics, its dark out.

    Using the tube from Todd in my UDS.


    Just a few cheese sticks to try.


    I smoke my cheese for 2 hours then wrap in the fridge for a day the vac seal for 2 weeks.

    Will let ya know how they turn out.

    That'll be tasty. We get the pepper jack and Colby jack cheese sticks. I've smoked those and they make a great snack!

    How long do you smoke them?

    I was just thinking maybe 2 hours is to long?

    Truly innovative! I would make these but I am afraid I would just sit down and eat them all. Heck. Who am I kidding, I will make these and sit down and eat them all. Great idea, Adam!

    My wife does legal work and one of her clients was getting rid of it. I've been wanting to mess with concrete counter tops and this will be a great project to get my feet wet! We are planning on gutting our kitchen and concrete counters are what we are planning to install.

    Your cheese looks great farmer, I think two hrs will be just fine also. Good luck on the sticks I think I will be making more in the future 

    A full smoker is a happy smoker

    Thanks DS, with being cheese sticks I didn't know if they would get too smoky at 2 hours.

    Guess we will find out in 2 weeks.

    Actually, for Mozz?  I have found it can work with a shorter rest than many cheeses.

    Still, it seems that any of them just get better with age.

    I have never used hickory for cheese

    Can't wait to see how you like these!

    Good luck and good smoking.

    I have done mozz before just not sticks.

    Wow!

    I just read the thread again?

    I have no clue where I came up with the hickory?

    Must have been a senior moment from another thread?    [​IMG]

    Good luck and good smoking.
