How to Cold Smoke Cheese in 3 Easy Steps

August 14, 2018 0 Comments

In today’s video I’ll show you how to cold-smoke cheese. You can cold smoke the cheese on a gas grill, Kamado grill or your smoker. You’ll also need the cheese and an A-MAZE-N smoking tray with pellets. The A-MAZE-N smoking tray allows you to get the smoke flavor on the cheese while maintaining a temp below 90 degrees F.

How to Cold Smoke Cheese

You want to select a cool day because the internal grill/smoker temperature needs to remain below 90 degrees F to prevent the cheese from melting.
