    I've smoked montery jack, cheddar and gouda with varying degrees of success. Cheddar is a good base cheese, but gouda is my favorite. Montery jack didn't wow me, it was too bland to stand up to the smoke flavor. I'd like to try something new and I'm curious what cheeses you all recommend...

    I get Guggisberg baby swiss out here and smoke it.  The last time I smoked it, people raved about it.  I'm not a big swiss fan, even I think it tastes excellent smoked.  You may want to consider Jarlsberg as well.

    I really like smoked American cheese... cream cheese is awesome...and I like Mozzerella when its whole milk...not part skim.

  10. My favorite cheese is a goat cheese from Spain called, "Nevat" that has almost a brie texture.

    I love serving it with figs, (as shown from my plate here) and now wonder if I could smoke a whole wheel of that AND the figs too?

    Or would it just be one runny and gooey mess??? Interesting thread! Happy Friday to all! Cheers! - Leah
