Homemade Smoked Cheese
This recipe is featured in Homemade Cured Smoked Salmon
Homemade smoked cheese is simple to make on your smoker grill with gouda, swiss, or sharp provolone. Smoked cheese is an ingredient in the Smoked Salmon Cheese Dip recipe.
- Four 227 gram (8 ounce) blocks of gouda, Swiss, or sharp provolone cheese
- Prepare a smoker grill. Cut the cheese into small blocks (113 grams/4 ounces) each.
2. Place foil on the smoke grill. Place chopsticks on the foil that will allow smoke to circulate around the cheese. Place cheese blocks on top of the chopsticks.
3. Keep the smoker very cool, but smoky. Make sure the cheese does not melt or render its butterfat. If it does, it is too hot. Smoke the cheese for 1-2 hours.
