Like the store bought stuff? Well, this homemade smoked gouda will knock your socks off! The secret to smoking your own cheese is to use low heat, and an ice bath so that the cheese doesn't melt. You can also use pepper jack cheese if you want it a bit more spicy. This cheese, with sautéed onions, makes an awesome quesadilla. It is useful for any recipe calling for gouda or cheddar too.
