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.
