Recently picked up the hobby of smoking cheeses (mild or medium cheddars are my favorites). I'm wanting to experiment with grating the cheese, mixing in some shredded bacon, then re-pressing it into small bricks before smoking.
#1) I don't even know if this is viable for a good product result -
#2) I've never made, or pressed, ANY cheeses before & don't have any idea how to go about it.
Anyone have some good, simple starter suggestions for a newbee?
