    I've been trolling here AmazingRibs.com for a couple of years and using everything I am able to get my hands on, from Meathead's Memphis Dust to Texas Beef Brisket to Bread and Butter Stuffins with Cranberries last Thanksgiving. Meathead is my go-to BBQ guy and I'm happy to be able to give back to this site that's made me look sooooo good in the BBQing in the backyard. Thanks, guys!

    I made smoked ribs this past Saturday and they turned out fantastic! I was able to route the smoke coming out of the big smoker into the cheap smoker and smoke cheese. It turned out great, too! If I keep this up and my wife keeps loving what I bring into the house, I may get my dream smoker sooner than I could hope!

    See my signature for my gear.

    Welcome StageFrite... glad you joined up! Your mod for smoking cheese sounds pretty ingenious... you should post some pics of it!


      Hello SF WELCOME!


        Interesting - I think the only smoked cheese I've had was gouda.

        What types of cheese do you smoke and with what type of wood?

        One of the first 'guy rules' of cooking I learned in college: "If your dish doesn't turn out good, then just melt cheese all over it - it can only make it better." lol

        Most of the guys here have forgotten more about grilling and smoking than I'll ever know, but they sure make me look like I know what I'm doing!!

          I picked up a bag of Mild Cheddar, Colby Jack, and Pepper Jack from BJs and mixed them all together. I used a mix of Hickory and Apple woods to smoke. I brought the leftovers to work today because too much cheese has an, um, impairment on bodily function, and the cheese is getting rave reviews! Yay!

          Yep, that's one of my favorites rules of cooking, too, "Cheese makes everything better."

        Sf, Welcome!! I really like your out of the box thinking and look forward to your pics and posts.


          Sounds great - I might have to try this cheese smoking thing.

          Agree with smarkley and Marauder - pics of that process would be helpful.

          Yeah - you don't want to be all stove up on cheese with Turkey Day coming - lol!

          Is This Superb Charcoal Grill A Kamado Killer?

          The PK-360, with 360 square inches of cooking space, this rust free, cast aluminum charcoal grill is durable and easy to use. Four-way venting means it’s easy to set up for two zone cooking with more control than single vent Kamado grills. It is beautifully designed, completely portable, and much easier to set up for 2-zone cooking than any round kamado.

          The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted

          Napoleon’s 22″ Pro Cart Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It’s hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the 22″ Pro Cart a viable alternative.
