  • 8 ounces gouda


  • Prepare your grill for cold smoking. I like to use a pellet tube filled with pellets. Light the end of the tube. Let it burn for 4-5 minutes, blow out the flame, and it should produce a nice steady stream of smoke.
  • Remove the Gouda from the wrapper, place the Gouda on the grill grates. If your outside temperature is over 40 degrees F, see the recipe note below for modifications.
  • Smoke the Gouda for 30 minutes to 1 hour.
  • Remove the Gouda from the smoker, wrap in parchment paper, place in the refrigerator for 2 days. Then vacuum seal the Gouda and continue to refrigerate for 2 weeks.
  • Serve Gouda with crackers, mix it in with mac and cheese, or eat as-is for a great smoky flavor.
