Default Success cold smoking :)

Hey everyone how are you all. After watching numerous videos on cold smoking cheeses. I must say it was a success. I purchased a large ball of fresh mozzarella. I set up approx 5 pieces of charcoal and maintained approx 70 degrees inside smoker. So the cheese does not melt. I put the cheese on for indirect heating. Used some apple wood chips. Soaked for 30 min. I let it sit in there for 2 hrs. I must say it was so delicious I'm looking forward to smoking different cheeses. I wish I took a pic but will next time. I highly recommend trying if you haven't. Otherwise happy BBQ everyone.

Awesome!

Did you use the fresh mozarella (like bufala) or the more firm type (like Belgioso brand)? Also did you let it rest for some time or did you eat it right away? I read that cheese can taste bitter if eaten immediately. Would love to get more details about how you set it all up.

A easy UDS cold smoker is to get a good long Dryer exhaust hose and attach it to the lide of te UDS, I used Aluminmum tape because I has some on hand. Then get a tubberware type storage container. Cut a hole, at one end, near the bottom, just big enough for the dryer hose and tape it secure and on the other end of the container drill some exhuast holes near the top of the container. Get some racks for cooling cookies to set inside.

As long as the hose is long enough, it does not matter how hot the UDS is, So you could do some smoking in the UDS while cold smoking.

Also this works best during cooler weather under 70.

I did alot of cheeses last winter, that turned out very good. Even better when they sit for a few days to fully develope and mellow the smoke flavor.
