SMOKING CHEESE

In April of 2015, I bought a Char-Broil brand cabinet smoker. I have thoroughly enjoyed using it!

Right now, (10:10 PM), the smoker is set up for cold smoking and I’m waiting for the smoke to start rising in the box. I’m about to smoke some Gouda, cheddar and Swiss cheese.

On the smoking rack.
