From Peculiarmike's info. we tried his and Fatback Joe's twist on smokin cheese early spring. Amb. temp was 52*, we ran temps up to 87* with some lid liftin!!:roflmaoha0:

Worked out to be the best smoked cheddar and Colbyjack we have ever had.

The CG worked great just like Mike said it would in his post, 4-5 coals will last ya bout 1:40 min which is long enough to impart great smoke flavoring. We added some small chunks/chips bout every 20min or so when the smoke was outta the chamber. What a wonderful thing to do to cheese to flip it over.

Any hoo on to the pics.

Nice job.:thumbs up: Bet that smoke added a great flavor to the cheese. I would have had to smoke twice that much, cause I would have ended up snackin' that whole bunch before I could have saved any.:msn-wink:

Looks great, Trav! I've been wondering if that could be done...I love smoked cheese...
I guess I missed Mike's post about using the CG for cold smoking.
