About due for a new soldering iron ... noticed the handle (plastic) is starting to melt.
Looks great !
You fridging them for a couple weeks?
Yes sir ... Won't be touched until the6th of November. Did some fresh "cheese curds" this morning. All in the garage fridge.
Yumm. That's alot of cheese! What wood did you use? and how long did you smoke? Thanks!
I'm confused. Why is the purpose of the soldering iron in the picture? Are you using it to produce smoke somehow? If so, do you close the door of your smoker on the cord?
It almost looks like you have an A-Maze-N sawdust smoker underneath that soldering iron.
Cherry & lil mesquet ... 4 hrs in the smoke for these big blocks. 2 hrs cutting and vac sealing.
Thats not an A-Maze-N smoker ... yes, the soldering iron makes the chips smoke. The cord runs through a vent, so the door does close normally.
What kind of cheeses did you smoke? Looks good man!
Oh that looks good, I'm down to a few blocks myself. Just waiting for a cheese sale and a temp drop here to restock.
10 days to wait and counting.......
Harbor Freight for the "El Cheapo Soldering Iron". May as well get a couple while you're at it.
That cheese looks great. Nice work! I love me some pepperjack
Great looking cheese smoke. The resting is the hard part.
That is some mighty fine looking cheese there cajun_1. never done Mesquite with cheese, but sounds good I'll have to tyr that. I'm getting ready to use some Oak Wine Barrel on some cheese. The waiting is the hardest part for me. 2 weeks is a long time when I'm waiting for smoked cheese, but well worth the wait. Enjoy and your going to get
Sharp Cheddar - Colby - Pepperjack - Chipolet
8 days and counting ... Harbor Freight is my friend ...
Actually still have some from a previous smoke so I'm not completly out ... these could probably sit in the fridge for a month before I have to tear into it.
