Too warm to smoke cheese

I bought a bunch of cheese to smoke for Christmas gifts but the weather isn't cooperating. It was 80 yesterday and that would only give me about 10 degrees to generate smoke. Never thought I would be hoping for some cooler weather. -RP


  • Come on to Atlanta Randy. 14 at home when I left yesterday, 27 today. I can cover the temp. you need & even let you use my eg. B)
  • Ice pan between the smoke generator and the cheese. Works good!
  • The weather is going to be nice at the Coop Christmas Party. Come on, and bring Kim and your cheese with you. We'll keep an Egg lit for you.

    Hi RP,

    I have not done this myself, but have been following some of the recent posts. Looks like lots of people are doing this for xmas gifts :).

    Could you use a pan of ice in the egg between the smoke source and the cheese?

    I need to type faster. Mississippi Egger stole my answer :P.

    Which came first the chicken or the egg?  I egged the chicken and then I ate his leg.

    generate the smoke in a box outside the egg and funnel it in with a little dryer hose.
