    After my first attempt at smoking cheese, I'm addicted now.  My wife recently bought a large selection of cheese and today i smoked them on my new MES 40".  


    Up early and getting them ready to smoke!





    On to the smoke!

    Looking good Surber, What were your internal smoker temperatures?

    Thanks Mr. T!  To be honest I didn't pay too close attention to the temps as I started early in the day and it was fairly cool out.  I never turned on the MES, I just used the AMNPS with hickory pellets.  It really did seem to heat up very much though.  Is there a target temp I should be watching for?

    Yes, It's been my experience that cheese will begin to change it's consistency at 80° so I will pull mine at 70°-75°.  When using a AMNPS in my 22 cf. cold smoker, the temperature can go up as much as 30°, therefor in the warmer months, a external heat sink is used. 

    The following links will help you out with your cheese along with addition information.  If I can be of further assistance, please ask.
