Smoked Cheese

Post  Slag on Wed Nov 23, 2011 6:45 pm

As some of you may know, ponies are not my only interest. (Neither is torture.) One of my other interests is anime. Admittedly, it's not my biggest interest by a long shot, but it still has a place in my heart.

What does this have to do with smoked cheese?

There is a particular anime, adapted from some light novels, called The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya. In between the two animated seasons of the show, a few fans created a small mini-series based around one of the side characters and her obsession with smoked cheese.

This particular mini-series prompted me to try smoked cheese for myself. It is the single best thing I have ever eaten.

Unfortunately, I lack both a reliable source from which I can acquire smoked cheese and any tools with which I could smoke my own cheese. If anyone can point me a way to either buy smoked cheese or a way to set up a small grill to smoke cheese without melting it, I would be extremely appreciative.

Are you going to make a gorefic involving you and smoked cheese?

I honestly think I'm done with gorefics for the time being.

A shipping fic about you and smoked cheese, then?

You might want to request merging "Slag's stuff" with the "Grimdark" subforum and deleting "Slag's stuff", then. Otherwise, new members might get the wrong impression about you and you would have to deal with "OLOLOL SLAG Y U NO WRITE GRIMDARK?!?!" on a daily basis.

I will say I kinda enjoy the infamy. Plus, my section doesn't specify anything about being grimdark, it just says that there's probably going to be offensive stuff in it.

Smoked cheese? WANT. Sounds almost as good as bacon.

I'd imagine people would tread carefully around you after the plethora of flying intestinal matter. Don't wanna get their favorite pony's skin flayed off.

So. Smoked cheese.
If you can't buy smoked cheese in a Publix or something similar, you could try cold smoking, but you have to set up your own smoker, which you need to buy or cobble together. All in all, it's a pretty involved process, especially if you have to make your own smoker as well. You sure you can't find any at the store? :p

I'll admit, I haven't tried Publix, but I've tried all the other local chains.

I know all about the cold smoking thing, I was studying up on how to make my own. Considering how bitter cold this winter's probably going to be (at least for the area I live in), I might be able to manage cold smoking in my grill with a little ingenuity.

From what I understand, you need two chambers for cold smoking. The first chamber is where you burn your wood/coal/baby flesh. The second chamber fills with smoke, and is where you put what you want smoked. That way, the food doesn't get cooked, but gets the smoky flavor. The problem is setting up the two so that they are linked, sealed, and fireproof; the pictures I've seen have people welding storage tanks together. No idea if that's the kind of effort you're willing to put in :p

All that's required is that the temperature doesn't get above about 90 degrees Fahrenheit. Even so, I think it will be a bit easier to just go buy the cheese.

Well, after a brief glance onto Google, seems like you can buy smoked cheese at plenty of sites on the internet. And I think that European Street might carry some smoked cheeses, if you have one of those near you.

I found some smoked cheese in one of the higher-end stores further out from where I live. I feel like I'm in heaven.
