    I found this cheese place over by Atlanta. My wife looked at the Swiss and they asked her if she wanted to try it.

    BOOM

    Yup she does. I got 2.5 lbs. Had them slice some kinda thick.

    8 slices ready for cold apple smoke.


    A-Maze-N doing its job.



    The slices were cold smoked yesterday.


    Today vac sealed and doing 2 months in the fridge. I put wax paper between the slices, i think i should have gone to Academy and got some satin pack.

    Where are you located? I can't smoke cheese until the temp drops to 45*.

    Satin Pack is like wax paper but more like clear wrap. The squares are not wax coated. They come in a box of 500 and are about 6" x 6"

    Right now we are in West Georgia.

    Dont let anyone say to you that you cant smoke cheese in the summer. I did  when we were in Florida over the summer and i dont use ice because ice creates condensation. Just keep your vents full open, use no heat, use whatever cold smoker you have. I prefer the Amazen over the smoke daddy because the SD can create creosote when used with chips. But thats just my opionon of it.

    Or you can fill a jug 3/4 full of water & freeze it.

    It will keep things cool without creating the condensation Rick speaks of:

    I have a dedicated MES that's for cold smoking cheese.  In the dead winter, I just have the cheese in there with my AMNPS going for about 8 hours.  I once did my set up (with no ice) and when I opened the machine, there was melted cheese.  But from what you gents are saying, I should simply use a jug of frozen water.

    I'm glad to learn of this because I'll head to Costco this week to pick up some cheese.  Usually, I'll let that cheese sit in the fridge for about 2 months at the earliest before I'll enjoy it. 

    Thanks!

    Works for me in PA, but I don't do it in the Summer. I did it one time when it wasn't very cold out, and I had to put 2 jugs of frozen water in.

    Also I use sawdust instead of pellets for any smoke below 200* smoker temp. I think pellets produce more heat.

    Did some cheese yesterday,  should have used my frozen milk jugs to keep it cool.  The lower rack just over the AMNPS started to have melted cheese, not ruined tho.  The temp guage on the MES30 never indicated over 85*.
