    Well Saturday it was time to fire up the AMNPS again and do a couple more rounds of cheese! Had been looking around for the last week to see what cheese's I could find at a decent price (our dairy is almost double what you guys pay down there  [​IMG] ) Here is what I picked up, plus a couple packs of discount bacon for some near future fattys!!

    Split the load between two smoke sessions, first round was 4.5 hrs with hickory pellets second load was apple.

    Here is the hickory 4.5 hrs in

    Second batch headed for some smoke, as you can see it's dark out, been on midnight shift this week so it was a late evening smoke.

    After 4.5 in the apple smoke

    Let it all sit out to dry after the smoke and then vac sealed it all for the 1 month wait.............[​IMG]

    Here it is all packed up with last weeks smoke included

    As I was checking out last weeks batch I noticed one of the seals had gone on the 3 year old cheddar, so I resealed it again but not before I cut a couple of test pieces, I was very surprised that it had only a slight bitterness to the edge but not bad at all and it tasted FANTASTIC and after only one week!!!!!!! I'm still going to give it the four week wait before I try again.

    Thanks for looking CWS

    Looks terrific. However, I should tell you about one of the hazards of having a stash of smoked cheese around. It tends to get pilfered as everyone loves smoked cheese. What you need is someone to watch it for you. Allow me to volunteer. Just send it to me and let me know when you want some of it back. You can trust me. Really!

    I would imagine your jaw would hit the floor if you had a look at cheese prices up here Bear!!!!  At least from what I have seen when I cross the boarder for a little shopping, next time I head over I will be stocking up on some
    Disco I would take you up on your kind offer but the shipping costs both ways would negate any savings of smoking my own cheese.......but I thank you for the kind gesture... [​IMG]
