If you are just using a lighter though, a propane torch is much faster than a standard lighter.
For others who may not have seen these smoker tubes before, you can watch our video to see what they are and how they work:
Did 16 pounds this morning. Mighty fine vittles for those who get my Christmas baskets.
PK100 set to 88 degrees. Apple wood.
lkrfletcher I’ll be doing colby, muenster, pepper jack and double smoked mozzarella tomorrow in the Traeger cold smoker. Also doing cashews and almonds on the hot side. If there’s room going to throw in a plate of apple pie spiced peanut butter!
lkrfletcher ooo yaaa that looks nice. Northing better than smoked cheese
lkrfletcher That looks great! I’ve never tried smoking cheese, how long do you leave it in the smoker? Isn’t it kind of hard to light? LOL
Depends on how much smoky flavor you want and what smoker you have and temp. In the pk100 you can get light smoke flavor in around 45 minutes. I went for 2 hours because I like that extra smokiness. A good rule of thumb is. When the cheese starts to sweat you are done
