Well a buddy of mine at work just cut a bunch of cherry and hickory trees and I traded half a wheel of my 9.63 pound Colby Jalapeno cheese for a trunk full of wood. He cut them in slices for me so I can pile them neatly and just break them up with a hammer when I need to use them.
The cheese was too big for a standard 11 inch vacuum sealer bag so I made a bigger one by slicing it down one side sealing two bags together side by side and resealing the edges. Tricky but it works. I have a tutorial here somewhere.
The the second photo is before cutting.
Then I tried using one of those cheese wire things to cut it in half and I was a bit crooked on the end. It was just long enough to press with the tip on my fingers. It’s very creamy. Sure can tell this was raw milk. This should be great smoked!
In case your wondering I cut it this way becuase everyone at work gets so excited seeing a round wheel of cheese. I trimmed it up and it looks great at work. It was carried all over the building like someones new child with all the oos and ahs appropriate to a new baby. I got a kick out of that!
