    I decided to do some cheese and almonds to day while watching football (go Titans!).

    I'm using peach in the A-maze-n smoker.

    Top row:

    Chevre - a soft goat cheese that tastes like cream cheese to me.

    Insalata Panino - Genoa Salame, sun dried tomato, gorgonzola cheese, & baby Arugula rolled in mozzarella cheese.

    Prosciutto Panino -Prosciutto rolled in mozzarella

    Creamy Havarti

    Bottom row:

    2 blocks of tomato - basil cheddar

    The almonds were tossed in a mixture of butter, dijon mustard, honey, salt and Tiger sauce.  We'll see what they're like in a bit.

    Ya'll have a good day.  [​IMG]

    Funny thing that.  It got warmer last night, not cooler.  The havarti melted and rand down onto the almonds.  I saved most of them, but not much of the havarti.  Then, I dropped the chevre going into the house.  It was still edible(it was in a foil basket), but didn't taste too good.  I think I'll pass on it in the future.  The rest is tucked away safe and sound in the fridge.

    The almonds were so so last night, kinda bland.  Today, the amount of smoke taste is incredible.

    My almonds were better about a week or so later.

    Better Luck Next Time!

    lol Carson!  thanks so much for sharing the less than perfect parts of the story!  Sorry you had some bad luck, but it just sounds exactly like something that would happen to ME, not other people...      let us know how the other cheeses come out!  Thanks for trying out the Chevre, it's one of my favorite cheeses, good to know it may not smoke well. Wrapped in grape leaves and just warmed up, but not a full on smoke is something I think I'll try though.

    OMG!

    That looks AWESOME!

    Now you understand why you have to wait to eat it.....Right?

    Immediately after smoking, cheese has a nasty bitter flavor, but mellows in a couple weeks

    Reminds me, I'm low on my cheese too..

    Bear,

    The two on the right are slices of Insalata Panino - Genoa Salame, sun dried tomato, gorgonzola cheese, & baby Arugula rolled in mozzarella cheese.

    The two on the left are slices of Prosciutto Panino -Prosciutto rolled in mozzarella.

    Boarshead makes them.  I found them on sale at Kroger a couple of weeks ago and threw 'em in the smoker with the cheese.  They are delicious.

    That looks really good!

    Thanks,
