I did some cheddar and pepper Jack this winter. Used a pellet tube to do it. Worked good,

I’m not a cheese smoker, but the guys I know all use the smoke tube. A little goes a long way and a long 3-5 week rest is a must.

I actually ate some within a couple weeks, it was terrible. I just ate the last one a week ago, after about 5-6 months. It was excellent.

I’ve read about using an ice tray to keep inside the grill cool for smoking the cheese. I’ve never done that myself, as here in Phoenix, it’s in the 80-90 at night, and you know where during the day. I did mine after dark in the winter yet here. I think it was 60 out. Your just suppose to keep where your smoking area temp below 90 if I remember. I put my cheese on a wire rack on top shelf, smoking tube on bottom. Cheese way to the right, smoking tube all the way to the left. I used a whole tube and flipped the cheese half way through.
