That kid is great. I would be so proud if my son were giving Q speeches. Priceless. And love his comments on what BBQ is not. It drives me friggin crazy when people say they "have burgers on the BBQ" or "BBQ'd some hot dogs ". WTF is that about???
You need to "cold" smoke it. So most, including myself, use a cold smoke generator that will keep the egg less than 90 degrees. You don't use any charcoal or anything. Just the pellets in the AMS. Some will build a small fire but seems like too much work to me to keep at such a low temp. You really just want to apply smoke. Not cook the cheese. You might even get some melting at 90 degrees. I would prefer it to be in the 70s but sometimes it's not in the cards
Where are you located? Inside of the egg needs to be less than 90 degrees or so. Probably less for smoking cheese or it will melt. I use a amaze n smoker only and egg usually hovers in this range. It's too warm ambient here to smoke cheese now. Other than that, it's as easy as lay it in grate and apply smoke for a few hours depending on desired smoke level. Then vac seal and let hang out in fridge for A few weeks or however long you want. Easy
