How To Cold Smoke Cheese


Cold smoking cheese has to be one of the easiest ways to add your favorite smoke flavor to your cheese.

To avoid melting your cheese, all you need is a smoking tube that slowly burns your wood pellets. I used the Traeger smoker to create the smoky environment but you could literally use a cardboard box if you wanted to.


  • Block(s) of cheese – Any type of block cheese and as many as you want.

Prepping Instructions

  • Take your block cheese out of its packaging and place it on a rack.
  • If you have multiple flavor of cheeses make sure to take a picture of how you layout the cheese so you can remember which cheese is which.

Smoking Instructions

  • Place wood pellets in your smoking tube
  • Light smoking tube and let the flame burn for 10 to 15 minutes
  • Place cheese in smoker for 2 hours
  • After 1 hour of smoking, flip your cheese over
  • After 2 hours of smoking you cheese is done
  • Vacuum seal or place your cheese in a zip lock bag
  • Place sealed cheese in fridge for a minimum of 3 days
