    Good evening.

    We bought a WSM 18.5 smoker a couple of weeks ago.  I have "seasoned' using a method I read about on another website.

    I used it to cold smoke some cheese today.  I used apple wood.  The hardest part was trying to keep the temp regulated at 90 degrees.

    I am looking forward to trying some pulled pork next.

    Welcome to the forum Rich!  I've never cold smoked on my WSM, I didn't know it was possible.  I will have to look into this, I want some smoked cheese!

    Welcome to SMF, Rich.

    Glad to hear you learning how versatile a WSM is.

    The cheese I cold smoked came out awesome.  Be careful to not use too much wood.

    In this attempt the sharp cheddar seemed to absorb more smoke flavor than the Swiss or mozzarella that I smoked at the same time.  All 3 came out wonderfully though.
