High Temp Cheddar Cheese 1 lb. is made specifically to withstand smoking and grilling temperatures up to 400°F. High temperature cheese is specially made so that it will not melt when cooked under normal smokehouse temperatures. High Temp Cheese gives a creamy flavor to your sausage products.

The 1/4″ dice is a perfect size for all types of sausages from big bologna to snack sticks and burger patties. Our high temp cheddar cheese is ideal for summer sausage, cheese franks or brats.

Our cheese also comes in 1 lb. and 5 lb., bags. We have the following types available: Bleu Cheese, Mozzarella, Pepper Jack, and Swiss.

For best results, we recommend using 5-10% cheese to ground meat or 0.5 to 1 lb cheese per 10 lbs. of meat.

Keep refrigerated.  Freezing not recommended.

  • Melting point of cheese is 400°F in sausage
  • Use 1 lb. of cheese per 10-12 lbs. of meat

      Cooked up a little test batch and the cheese worked good. Just stuffed some brats and did ok. Just need to see what happens after cooking them up.

    4. Jay (verified owner)

      I have not used this yet, but the chunks of cheese are real small which is a good thing for stuffing into the casings. I have never been let down with any of tThe Sausage Makers products, so I’m sure this will be top notch as well.

      This can be found cheaper on other sites, but with shipping it’s all about the same. This stuff is great in cold sausages.

    10. Lee (verified owner)

      This is the one they all ask for … I add it to all my 24mm and 32 mm sausages. Great on a bun…. I especially like it with the Jalapeno Summer seasoning

    11. Thomas Hagler (verified owner)

      this cheese goes well with any of the sausage I have made.

    12. Randy Heitkamp (verified owner)

      I’m not sure actually it says keep refrigerated and it came in the mail when it was hot. Is it safe to use?

    21. Daniel H Moore III (verified owner)

      Very good flavor.

    22. Patrick Kader (verified owner)

      The casings and high temp cheese that I ordered were excellent. One recommendation for those making their sausage ahead and allowing time for the spices to “meld” before smoking is to add the high temp cheese just before stuffing. I added mine a few days before and it became a bit mush.

    23. Kirby Keller (verified owner)

      Fine cheese. Used it in a venison sausage that was smoked. Worked well.

    24. Greg Racca (verified owner)

      Added to my ring bologna and what a great combo!

      Will be useing this this weekend in my summer sausage.

    29. Dustin (verified owner)

      The cheese was good quality but the shipping method leaves a lot to be desired. When the cheese arrived, it was very obvious it sat in the heat at the shipping hub and on the delivery truck for a while. Some of the cheese began to melt and became oily which in turn coated a lot of the cheese in oil.

      First time i used the cheese in sausage. Kids and Adults loved it, so i will be ordering more!

    31. Andrew (verified owner)

      Works great in my summer sausage !

    37. Timothy Maiter (verified owner)

      I’ve used regular cheese in past and it could turn into a mess with the cheese melting resulting in a less than perfect sausage.

    38. cogboy (verified owner)

      works well in your sausage

    48. Kevin Robertson (verified owner)

      The Hi-Temp Cheddar Cheese held its shape and didn’t melt after being in the smoke house for six hours at 152 deg. It also mixed very well with the Jalapeño peppers.

    49. Jerry Morris (verified owner)

    50. Harland Johnson (verified owner)

      great product good price I ordered from you vs. others as it came with free shipping good idea.

    51. Amy Mowry (verified owner)

      Great product, but did melt slightly when preparing it for smoking, but this was the first time making this so took us a little longer with prepping so I think this was more the issue then the product itself. Overall great product.

    52. Anonymous (verified owner)

      I love this hi-temp cheese

    53. Matthew Favro (verified owner)

      Even pushing through a sausage press the cheese stayed whole! Baked for 16 hours at 170C and it did not melt! Great stuff!
