  1. Getting ready to try my hand at cheese for the first time! Q'view to follow, if I can get it to work .[​IMG]  Haven't had much luck in the past so we shall see. Wish me luck!

    Also I'm smoking a turkey. today, 

    I'm doing the turkey on the GOSM and doing the cheese on the char-griller duo. It will be my first smoke on the duo so hopefully things will go smoothly.

    Good luck!

    Are you using a AMNPS for cold smoking the cheese?
     
  3. No. I've yet to invest in one yet. So far it is working perfect with the side firebox. Got a very nice TBS coming out of the exhaust stack on the Duo. I'm very impressed with it so far. I got it from a friend for FREE! Can't beat that price these days! LOL

    The problem is you have to cold smoke cheese. The chamber temp can't get past 90 degrees or the cheese will melt. So if you have a fire in the firebox giving you nice TBS your also going to generate enough heat to melt the cheese.
     
  5. I didn't make an actual fire in the firebox like I would to smoke meat. I'm just using a few pieces of charcoal under my wood chunks to make 'em smolder.

    Looks great!!!!  I like to put the cheese on the top rack and put ice under it just to help keep the temp down
