First cheese smoke
« on: December 16, 2015, 01:29:38 pm »
Just got the bradley cold smoke adapter which i like a lot except the door size could have been just a hair bigger to get a water pan in there but no big deal. 

Anyways i did my first batch of cheese last night it was in the low 40s in North west PA and the temp stayed right around 65-70 in the smoker i ended up going 2 hours with hickory. I can't wait to try it in a month or so

Hot Pepper
Cream Cheese

Looks pretty good there.  You might try some Frogmats between the racks and cheese to keep the cheese off the metal.  I use them not just for cheese but for everything I smoke.

Also, there's an almost perfect size disposable baking pan that fits in the bottom of the smoker that I replaced the smaller water bowl with.  I think it's 8x13.

TedEBear, thanks for taking the time to put in the link to Yard and Pool for the fogmats. I just ordered 4. PAHardwoods inspired me to do my first cheese smoke.
