Smoking Edam or Guda cheese
« on: March 17, 2013, 07:07:24 PM »
1) What is the best rind development type and at what stage should the cheese be smoked?

2) What is the traditional or most common type of wood used in smoking these cheeses?

TIA John

I have wondered recently if you could use smoked salt in your make to produce a smokey flavored cheese.

Here in the US I believe the woods of choice would be hickory or mesquite.

I did think about hickory and thought it was to pungent and may over power the flavour of the cheese. It may depend on how long you smoke it for.

I am thinking Alder, apple or maple something in the sweeter side. So I should do a salted natural rind and smoke it when?
