    Did another Mozzarella smoke this weekend - here we are going into the smoker after sitting out for a couple of hours to get a nice skin on the outside

    . Here it is with a light smoke - might go an extra 10 min next time


    EDIT - Now that I have the A MAZ N SMOKER - I no longer use any heat in the smoker

    Nice looking Mozz, been a while since I smoked any cheese.
    Now that the cooler weather has arrived I need to get on it. Never tried mozz, a few other kinds but not mozz. Definitely need to, and if I can get ahold of buffalo mozz that would be great!

    These were from Costco and come two long ones to a package - I cut them in half to get more smoke on them - make sure to let them sit out for a bit to get a skin on the outside or all the moisture comes out in the smoke

    Ya also gotta stick a pan of mixed nuts in with your next smoke - I just took a 1" deep 8 X 10 foil pan and poked a bazillion holes in it and stuck in with the rest of the smoke - took them out after about 1 1/2 hours - rock star good

    That's a really great tip, glad you mentioned it because if not I may very well have just tossed a wet slab of cheese in the smoker and that wouldn't have been very good.
