Welcome to my blog. Now that I am retired, one of my favorite things to do is chill out with a few brews and firing up the grill or smoker and do some BBQing. Check out my cooking adventures or if you can't think of what to cook for dinner check out my recipe data base or the huge internet recipe data base. There are thousands of ideas there for you. Then let me know what you think of my blog. Enjoy
Winter is a perfect time to smoke some cheese. I just use my Traeger and a smoke tube without plugging the Traeger in. I chose a 2 LB block of Mild Cheddar and a 2 LB block of Coby/Jack.
I cut the blocks into quarters
I filled the smoke tube with pellets. I used apple pellets as apple gives a mild flavor to the cheese. After filling the tube I lit it and let it burn for about 15 minutes.
I put out the flame and arranged the blocks on the grill and began the smoking. I rotated the blocks after one hour. and then rotated them again an hour later. After about two and half hours I took the cheese off the grill.
I then vacuum sealed the blocks and try to wait a month or so before eating.
