How to Smoke Cheese
There are multiple ways to smoke cheese, but the two most popular: are the hot and cold smoking methods. In cold smoking, the cheese is exposed to the smoke from an open flame, but thanks to separated compartments, none of the heat is transferred to the cheese, keeping it from melting. While hot smoking is possible with cheese, it is less in favor as the temperatures required can easily melt the cheese making the process more precarious and limiting your selection to very firm cheeses.
The smokiness of the cheese depends on two things: the kind of wood used and the time the cheese is exposed to the smoke. Woods like hickory, birch, apple, cheery, and other hardwoods are popular favorites. Some cheesemakers bypass wood altogether using nutshells like hazelnuts instead to impart an especially delicious taste. The amount of time cheese is smoked, depends on how intense you want the flavor to be and which method of smoking you’ve opted for. Hot smoking takes much less time than cold methods, but as mentioned, is a much more precarious process. No matter which becomes your favorite, you’ll find an excellent assortment to select from in this section. From soft Italian Mozzarella to classic smoked Gouda, and beyond!
