I have been reading posts about cheese and wanted to give it a whirl since I can't do my jerky till my A-Maze-N gets here next week. Had to run a test on the Traeger to see how high the temp goes on the smoke only setting. WAY too high! 200* and that is higher than the first temp setting on the dial which is 180*. No cheese is going to be smoked in the Junior Elite I can see. I will wait and see what temps the propane grill (not using any propane) goes with the "maze" in there smoking it up. I am thinking more and more that I need another smoker..
