Four Racks of Cheese
« on: December 08, 2012, 08:00:03 am »
  Hey guys, sale of cheese this week. Thought why not. So I have Havarti, Monterey Jack, Old Cheddar, Medium Cheddar and a Marble in. They are only about 3/4 of an inch thick. Wondering because they are so thin maybe not smoke for two hours. How long in the smoke do you guys think. In using apple   , ill get some pics when it comes out. I was in a hurry this morning.

2 hours of smoke wouldn't scare me at all.

Amount and length of time getting smoke has nothing to do with the size of the cheese. You are more concerned with making sure the temps inside of the cabinet stay down below 80 degrees so the cheese doesn't melt. rotate the racks every half hour during the cold smoke process top to bottom if your not using some ice with it
