Another cheese smoke largest one yet.

  1. Well I ran out of cheese and the local grocery store has it on sale.  A match made in heaven if you ask me.  8oz bricks were $1.77 I ended up picking 14 of them up.  Haha the checkout lady had to ask and make sure there wasn't a max on the number I could buy.  

    Ended up smoking Sharp cheddar, pepperjack, farmers, white cheddar, mozz, chipotle ched, colby, and marb ched. Smoked for just over 3hrs with the AMNZP with a mix of apple, hickory, and maple got some awesome smoke off of it best yet.  The temp is finally getting up there around 30F so I still added a heater but got really good color on the cheese which did not happen with the last batch.

    Sorry I forgot to take after pictures till they were in the bags.  Once the two weeks is up I will be re sealing them in Vac bags as mine has not arrived yet.  If anyone want to see better pics I could take them then.

    WOW!

    Nice Cheese Spread!

    You'll really notice a difference in how well food takes smoke, when you get above 40°.

  9. You are deff right Todd. My first batch I did outside with no heat and it was around 20F out.  It had little to no color but, some taste.  This time I but a Mr. Buddy heater in the smoker you can see it in the one pic kept it about 70-80F the whole time.  Way better color and hopfully taste.
