Christmas Cheese
« on: December 09, 2011, 06:52:24 AM »
Well decided to try yesterday to get cheese smoked. No adapter but out side are was around 40 degrees. Surprised I smoked two hours of Hickory and smoker never got past 90 degrees.

5 lbs. Cheese ready to smoke



In smoker



Smoking away!






All done and cooling

 


Will do more later. A lot more. Oh I did have to try it. I cut a small slice from end then a second which I gave the wife. I ate the end and it did have a smoky ash tray taste. Wife thought hers was strong too! So I finished it. Second piece I thought wasn't that bad. But I do love smoke!!!

Ahhh you can't beat smoked cheese!
Once your cheese has rested a month or so it's really going to be good!

Hana well wife is usually supportive. But she looked at this and said,thought you were going to smoke them. Had to cut a piece to show her. Should have seen her face. LOL

my countdown is on.....4 wks is Dec. 20th for my 1st cheese smoke!!! And mine did smell nasty post-smoke, took everyone's word for it and didn't bother tasting...

good luck seeing it all sit in your fridge every day for a month!

Well mine is the 5th. But think I'll try some Christmas a little early. I hid mine in the bottom drawer of fridge. Simply because I never look in there. I have so much meat to smoke in the next couple weeks I should be able to make it.

Busy here too, a couple of buddies that I've always done an exchange with are going to get smoked gifts rather than typical guy stuff. Got a brother in Calgary that'll also get beef jerky and candied salmon. My second batch of jerky in 24hrs is in now. Reminds me I better go check it! ;D
