Default Smoked Cheese

OK, so here is an ignorant question...How the hell do you smoke cheese? I really would like to know, so I can do this for the holidays. What is the process, the temps, the times and the preferred cheeses?

Thank you in advance.

I also posted for you on another post..but..here goes..

Someone a few years back had a great idea..you use a cardboard box...a clean soup can and one of those cheap stick soldering things (New of course) you can buy one for about 5 bucks....you punch a hole in the bottom of the can to insert the soldering rod..the fill the can with your favorite sawdust or chips, fold back the can lid then place can under cardboard box and plug in the rod...put cheese on a rack under the cardboard box....it will start to smoke very quickly and at a temp that won't melt the cheese..I do it a lot and it's simple, quick and a SNAP to clean!! I judge the cheese by the color to determine when it's to my liking...hope this helps!

I followed a post here. Can't remember who to credit but I followed their directions: light five or six Kingsford briqs and let them ash over, fully lit. Put them in the bottom of your UDS and lay a stick of your favorite smoking wood (apple for me) over the coals. Take a separate cooking rack and sit it on top of a pan full of ice. Set the pan and ice onto the main rack of your cooker. Lay blocks of cheese over the rack above the ice. I used 1# blocks of cheese and quartered them. Close the lid, allow them to smoke for an hour or so. Try to keep the temp under 75 degrees. if you smoke whole one lb blocks go as long as an hour and a half. If you smoke that long you may need to add coals/wood. I used a piece of wood a little larger than my finger. Hope this helps.

I smoked about 3 pounds of provalone this past Friday on my offset byc. I lit 4 briquette from a bag of blue k. Once they were good to go I had some soaked apple wood chips that I used a small handful of to provide the smoke. I sliced my cheese into aprox. 1" X 3" rectangles and placed them in the cooking chamber. The grate temp stayed close to 75 with some Finessing of the damper. I maintained the temp and smoke for for just short of two hours. Then I transferred the cheese to a food saver bag and refrigerated. Next weekend I'm going to make stuffed meatballs with the cheese for Christmas.

I use the tin can method first mentioned. And, when summer time rolls around and you're out of smoked cheese, set the cheese on top of one of those bricks of "blue ice" and let 'er rip!
