Done about 4 batches now.  Smoke cheddar blocks for 1hr 20min (4 pucks worth).  Keep the the cabinet unplugged and it's hard to reach 100deg.  Since I dont have Bubba pucks yet, I have to open the cabinet door to advance the last 2 pucks and that helps to eliminate the heat.  I wipe the cheese down with paper towel to eliminate the sweat and throw in the fridge right away to firm the block back up.  Resist temptation to try right away as it is so much better brought back to cold temp.

I use hickory smoke on it.  I did a block of mozza the first time out, but the length of time I did that batch was too long, but mostly mozza is a weaker cheese, so it's easier to over smoke - never had a bad batch of cheddar[:p]

Chef,  where the hell did you find habenero cheddar.  I worked at a cheese factory for a few years and never came across anything like that.  That isn't from one of those dairy farms in California is it[?]Sound good though.  Nachos from hellllll[}:)]

Let your trout go and smoke a salmon instead.

Just an update from my last cheese post.  Still smoking medium cheddar for 4 pucks, but this last time I used Pecan instead of Hickory.  Both are good, but if you want to please a wider range of people, use the Pecan.  It is just milder enought to make a difference - wife loves it now as opposed to just pleased with hickory[:)]

I'm sure it would be good, I think that apple is very light so it would be even less intrusive than pecan.
<font color="blue">BUT</font id="blue">
I think the better question is - how would smoked cheddar taste on apple pie[?]

Okay, I just got my BS up and running and tried a little cheese. I cooled off the smoker w/ and ice pack inside before starting. Had it around 60F. Then I put in 1/3 bricks of cheddar, pepperjack, and swiss. Filled the water bowl with ice, and put a cake pan of ice on the first rack (cheese was on the second). I started the smoke and smoked for 1 hour. The first 30 min. I had the door propped open. When I went out to checkand advance another bisquette 10 min later, the door was shut. Internal temp read about 80F and a fair amount of smoke in the cabinet. Propped the door open again, but the cheese already smelled ashy at that point and had a little sweat on it. I let it go for 1 more bisquette with the door open, but the damage seemed to be done. Do most of you have to keep your door open to produce the light smoke or was there something else I missed? Needless to say, a disappointing first run, but I'm sure this will be an extensive learning process.[:I]
