how long for the smoke taste,,to punch thru that block of cheese?????
2 hours for cheddar
2.5 hours for the spicy cheese
I started out at at 4 hours but after it sets for a week in a vacuum seal bag (like wine )
It gets stronger and it is to much for me
But I smoke for some guys that want 5 hours of smoke and love it
They say to never let the cheese get to
90* but I say 80 degrees
Over 80 the cheese releases to much oil and sucks up the smoke
I keep mine under 70*

hh - Does it taste better than all of this ?

probably so hh - you have impressive strings, but i'll go for 'stillhunter's... his are all cooked! lol...

what do u have there? some big catfish, crappie and small mouth bass?... I have catfish, perch and lm bass on my place...

personally, I am not sure any salmon is better tasting than any other... other than some of that Copper River Alaskan smoked candied salmon. :numberone: being from the Pacific NW I have eaten salmon most ways. it is my favorite fish, followed by good fresh north Atlantic cod. i'd be ok with crappie being #3 for me. salmon? - I like it all! down here I can get unfrozen Atlantic salmon nxt day air... really good! next to candied smoked, I like poached best. here is some we did on the grill this past summer... I just completed a small table-top type bbq unit restoration. I wont grill on it. primary purpose is to slow cook and poach salmon in tin foil packets...

good same day caught steelhead is a melt in your mouth proposition, too. Seattle - I have had Green River steelhead that was very, very good!

steak is great, but i'll take salmon any day!

hh - you seem to be a bbging guru! smoked cheese is not everyone's forte! your smoking looks good. how do u like to cook such fish as those catfish? crappie? sm bass? will u do them on the grill or deep fry some, too?...

Never had steel
And tried salmon a few times and only liked it once because it was fresh never frozen .
Just me I guess ?
Walleye is my favorite
Just got back to stocking flathead in the freezer
Blue cat is only channel will eat just taste better

Can’t find any pictures.
I will have to start doing that
Deep fry with mushrooms is my favorite
Grilled is good and slow smoked is good too
But I tend to over cook it a little because l don’t want to get sick on it and not like anymore!
Never tried the cold smoke with brine I stay at 190* or above on all the fish
