My first attempt at smoked cheese got just a bit hot at the end but the cheese still tasted good. My favorites are Sharp cheddar, Gouda,Colby-jack, I just tried some monteray jack. It is still aging in vac pack. After my first attempt with hot coals and wood chips, I built a smoke generator similar to a smoke daddy but mine has a adjustable air inlet at the bottom. Anyhow it worked very well and stayed below 70 degrees. It is a bit of a creasote mess to clean up after use. If the cheese taste good worth the effort. Good luck with your cheese.
