    Ernestina just informed me that we are down to our last pack of smoked cheese. She will be picking up 2 five pound blocks today. Temperatures are supposed to be in the mid-high 70's all next week...with our Egg sitting in the sun I hope I have not missed my opportunity. Suppose I could drag my drum into the shade and use that. Couple bricks in the bottom to put the AMNPS in line with the intakes. Even though I have only been smoking cheese for a few months would hate to go without it lol....

    Looks like a good start, how did they turn out, did you get some nice color on them? You will have a nice wait time now

    Pepperjack picked up a lot of color. Cheddar got a fair amount as well. We try to let them rest at least 14 days prior to shredding, looks like the first pack will be getting used on Monday...

    I like the way you stacked it up! How about some after shots?

    Certainly filled up the BGE!  Like the rack.  I have a couple more weeks waiting on my first cheese.

    Will try to remember when we start using them. I wanted to get 10 pounds in the Egg...


    Racks are cookie cooling racks from the Dollar store. Wife has yet to find another rectangular set, only round singles

    After a 12 day snooze, vacuum sealed in the fridge. The aroma is fantastic...

    Awesome work! Don't be afraid to cold smoke all year after the sun goes down;)

    We are staying light until 9 or so. Where my smoking equipment is sitting has very little shade. At 8 p.m. the temperature in the UDS is 120 or so and the Egg is a bit higher. Although with my insomnia problems I suppose cold smoking at 2 a.m. may be possible....lol....

    Little different climate, I think I could cold smoke most nights if we aren't in a heat wave by putting things on at 1030 or so before going to bed.
