It only takes about an hour to get a good smoke on the cheese.
Here is the can and soldering iron setup...
i was considering the can and solder method with smoking pellets but folks online were saying that they needed to unplug the solder pen every once in a while because the smoke got too thick. caseydog, i know you are using wood chips, do you find you have to unplug the solder pen ever so often? or do you just plug it in and let it go? i ask because i'm using expanded metal kind of like the A-maze-n pellet smoker(which works quite well) but i dont really wanna buy smoking pellets when i have wood chips already.
