      Place half-size pan in center of full-size pan. Surround half-size pan with ice filled all the way to the top.
    • 3

      Place cheese in half-size pan sitting on top of toothpicks or a cooling rack so it allows airflow around the cheese and prevents sticking. Place pan on grill.
    • 4

      Smoke cheese for 1 hour. Open grill and flip cheese over. Add more ice around pan into melted water and continue smoking for 1 more hour.

      Remove cheese from grill and wrap in parchment paper. Place in fridge and allow to rest for 2 to 3 days. This will allow the smoke flavor to mellow.
