  • I can't wait to give that a try one of these days. Looks wonderful and you have a nice variety of cheeses also.
  • Give it a go. It's easy as can be and you will love the results.

  • all but the mozzerella which does not take on smoke till after some of the water squeezes out.

    How long did you smoke the cheese?

    It looks good.

  • mozzerella

  • 3 hours for the all but the mozzerella and 3hrs 45 min for that.. BUT . i moved the mozzerella so it would be above the cut outs in the plate setter and take the smoke direct for the last 45 minutes.

    I'll be curious how it tastes, cause 3 hours is twice as long as my longest smoke. T ACGP, Inc.
  • i find that the lump coals do not keep the smoke going as long as briquettes do... the first time i tried lump coals and quit after a little bit and switched to briquettes. the lump and my slices of maple seemed to need much more attention and there were periods of time with out much [any] smoke,, unless you feel like experimenting i would stick with the naked whiz tutorial. i will let you know.. i found [the first time] that the munster [i know there is supposed to be an 'e' in there somewhere] was good right away and the cheddar was needed to age for a week, actually the cheddar sucked till it aged]. first try with gouda and the mozzerella did not take smoke the last time .
  • How did the Mozzerella taste with 3.75 hours?
    I've smoked other cheeses, but have yet to try Mozzerella.
  • did not taste it yet i think it needs to rest and these are for the office staff.. will taste mon, tue, and wed. and post.. will let the 'girls' [no disrespect intended] decide ... i like smokey stuff and raw meat so i am not the best judge.

    Ohhh Young William. I see the girls will be eating good tomorrow!! ;) Been wanting to do some cheese and smoked nuts for some time. I agree the dreaded bricketts do a better job than lump. I have a smoke box made out of a coffie can I use in the Egg. Don't guess you can get a metal coffie can any more. All plastic. :(
  • next time i will use the chimney starter. sent the pics to the girls they will be happy tomorow.
