    Yes always just amaz-e-n tube, source of heat. Agree sharp cheddar not so good. Yes to increased surface area by cutting. As an appetizer it's gone quickly. YUM

    I second the advice MBMorgan and Ricorocks have for you. Just use your grill or smoker as a cabinet to hold your cheese and a smoking tube. If you are into experimenting, you can even use hay to smoke cheese.

    I got good results when outdoor temperatures were 40-60 F / 5-15 C with no direct sun on the smoker/grill to warm it up. It's not something you want to do on a sweltering summer day at high noon in full sun.

    I use milder flavored cheeses like string cheese (mozzarella), swiss, gouda, brie, colby, mild cheddar, farmer, etc. I smoked a piece of 4 year sharp cheddar once, and it didn't taste especially good or interesting to me, even after mellowing. This is certainly a personal preference thing, but maybe smoke only a smaller piece of sharp or aged cheese first and see how you like it.

    If the cheese is a large block or brick, I cut it into long chunks 1 1/2 to 2 inches (3-5 cm) square. That creates a nice amount of surface area to expose to the smoke.

    I wrap the smoked cheese in deli paper (waxed paper) and then put the bundles of wrapped cheese in a zipper lock bag and refrigerate. Definitely age the cheese after smoking. It's nasty bitter right at first, but it gets much more tasty in a week to a month.

    I've had great results with a-maze-n tube, apple pellets are great! Swiss, gouda, my fav's, better cheese, better taste also. After smoking, I wrap tightly, saran wrap, or food saver. Cheese will be quite strong coming off the smoker, so I let it age in the chill chest, min one week.

    I’d never thought of a smoking tube, good call! And thanks for the article!

    Right now we’re hitting lows of about 40

    as far as the grill it’s a propane Weber

    and The smoker as far as I remember it will hold around 200? But that’s not positive since I haven’t had any real reason to go below 225 ever

    replied
    It doesn't sound like a Landman electric can hold temps lower than 100F ... which is too hot for cold-smoking cheese. Your best bet is to get your hands on a smoking tube for use either in your electric or your grill ... neither of which should be on.

    Here's a link to a decent looking article on the process: https://heygrillhey.com/smoked-cheese/

    Smoked cheese on an electric?

    Hey all, I’ve been wanting to smoke some cheese for quite a while now but I’m not sure how to go about it. The equipment I’ve got is a Landman electric smoker and a regular ol grill (I’d love to upgrade to a pellet smoker someday, but due to being in college the lack of money is keeping me away!) anyway, do any of you know of any techniques or anything to help with with smoked cheesy goodness? Or am I just SOL until I get some more “serious” equipment?

The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.
