    I've smoke the regular low fat / non fat series but not fresh.  Anyone done it with good results?

    they say on soft cheese to eat it up cuz it will spoil. So donot save it.[​IMG]
  3. It seems to me that fresh would be like cream cheese, I think....

    Since it is mild, I would say a light smoke, maybe an hour with a mild wood.

    Just my thoughts.

  4. Have smoked fresh mozzarella once, kept it in smoker for 3 hours with many other kinds of cheese, and the fresh mozzarella was horrible it tasted like a dirty ashtray ended up throwing it right in trashcan. All other cheeses have come out excellent. I usually use apple dust and really like the final product. Good luck.
  5. Was the fresh cheese aged for a couple weeks too?

  6. Hello Mel,

    No I didn't let the fresh cheese sit for a few weeks before eating, I had read that the fresh can be eaten immediately after removing from smoker. I am guessing I smoked it for to long of a time period. Let me know how yours comes out if you give it a try.

    I have smoked Mozz string cheese... I let it sit for weeks and it was good.... I think "fresh" cheese, like Mozz, is better with less smoke.... but that's my taste.....

    I searched Fresh Mozz and came up with quite a few who smoke it and say it's good.  Even came up with some recipes to make it fresh then smoke.    [​IMG]

    Only way to eat string cheese is smoked. Most tasteless crap i ever put in my mouth. Did once, tasted and gave rest to young un. She loved it.
