Hi Folks. One of my favorite things is to smoke cheese. I got the urge to smoke some Feta and it worked out well.
I did my usual thing. Insulated shelf, tin full of ice. I had some Alder pellets so I tried them for grins instead of my usual cherry chips.
I got a big container of President Feta from Costco. I put about a half inch deep layer in the bottom of one of those rotisserie chicken plastic containers that you can put in the oven (Ate chicken first) I imagine that shallow aluminum pan like you use to catch drippings would also work fine.
Set the oven to 140 degrees and let er smoke. I got preoccupied and turned the oven off at 97 degrees instead of my planned 90 degrees like I normally do. The white feta looked uncomfortably like yellow snow BUT it tasted fine and I will be using it.
While I will snack at my other smoked cheeses just because they are there, the Feta is strictly for putting on salads, in eggs, mac and cheese etc.
