    I smoked some cheese for a thanksgiving dinner appetizer treat and everyone enjoyed it so much that I decided to do some and give it away for christmas gifts.  went to costco and got the big blocks of sharp chedder and colby jack cut them into sticks about 1in square and about 5 in long.(depends on the size of the block I started with)  put them in the smoker at about 80 deg or so and with apple for about 3 hours.  vacuum packed a peice of each in a bag and they are now in the freezer to "rest" before gift giving time!!

    I happen to be certified in "Smoked Cheese Quality Control" if you need someone to inspect and certify your gifts as being acceptable for human consumption.   I only need about 30 lbs. for the certification process to be completed. [​IMG]

    Bear is right - I can see the fires in San Diego


     
    I am not nearly as greedy, just send me a couple of test samples from each batch - say 1/2 # each and I can certify it for you much quicker too
