PREPARATION and HOW TO SMOKE CHEESE:

Here's how to smoke cheese. The way to make smoked cheddar cheese or any smoked cheese is to cold smoke the cheese. Cold smoking is how to make smoked cheese and is nothing more than smoking food in a smoker without the addition of heat. Smoking cheese is easy because you don't even need a smoker, just a box and it can even be a cardboard box. Place cheese on the grill of your smoker or on an elevated grill inside the box. Do not use any heat in the smoker it even helps to put some ice inside. Start the SmokePistol® or GrillKicker™ supplying smoke into the smoker and watch to make sure that the temperature does not exceed 90 degrees Fahrenheit. This will cause the cheese to melt. Don't let the smoke blow directly onto the cheese just let it fill the box or smoker and surround it. Smoke cheese for at least 2 hours to taste.
