    I couldn't believe it,,, last yr this time of yr it was 103 Average,,,, We had a cold front move it and produced snow in the mountains and rain here in the valley,,, but cold enough to do some cheese. 

    Been a while since I had seen these kinds of temps this time of the yr. only 74 here for a high. 

    So took 4 lbs a cheddar and 4 lbs of Pepper jack that has been sitting in the beer fridge and cut them up into pieces,,,

    Inside smoker temp,,, just right 


    Never used this flavor before 




      

    Didn't get much color on this batch but it did get my supply back up for the summer,,,, trading material for canned goods 



    Thanks for looking

    Horseradish cheese?   HMMMMMMMM

    Ever try the Italian Spice from Todd?     Good smoke for cured meats, bet its good on cheese.   I use a lot of wine barrel on cheese.

    Nice job on the cheese DS!

    Good thing I made a lot last winter, cause it will be a while before I can make more.

    The heat down here has been brutal this summer.

    Smoking cheese is my winter activity. The trick is
    To smoke enough to have for the hot months... Never
    Have enough ..
