Best part is the variance in hotness. Sometimes you'll get a milder piece, but then sometimes you get a slice that absolutely kicks your ass.

Unfortunately, you to get experience that twice, if you know what I mean.

Love this stuff, I buy blocks from Costco and cold smoke them in my smoker. But like nick said...you get to experience the hotness twice.

OK, cold smoking -- please elaborate. Unfortunately I've got a Weber bullet smoker so obviously cold smoking is probably out of the question, but I gotta know for the future.

Get yourself one of these, http://www.amazenproducts.com I have one and love it

Or, you can take an empty soup can (label removed), fill it with wood chips, stick a soldering iron into the wood chips, and plug it in. Put the can/iron into they bottom of your smoker and voila, smoke but no heat.

Awesome, thanks for the info. I've gone there several times before but never checked out cheese smoking. Def will have to give it a shot smoking the Cabot.

haha, this is great. My 13 year old son loves this stuff. He will sit and eat it a quarter pound at a time. I like it on quesadillas but only a tiny bit mixed in with other cheeses.

This stuff is wicked, I bought it on special at the local Giant supermarket.

Your son must have a GI tract of steel.

Just cut into a fresh block. Your smoking sounds like it could be a nice addition.

My dog (Viszla) just ate a half block of this. I'm expecting some excitement soon.
