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.

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

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

    2. Gene Corbett (verified owner)

      Good with these flavors.

    3. Chris Powell (verified owner)

      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.

    5. Andrew Neff (verified owner)

      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.

      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)

    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.

    30. Carl Roth (verified owner)

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

    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.

      What’s to say here? It works great! Fit in my 16mm casings well, tastes like cheddar, holds up to cooking temps, and gives a pleasant texture. I froze before adding to the meat, and recommend doing that. I know they recommend using 1lb of cheese for 10lbs of meat, but I used 1lb of cheese in 12-13lbs of meat for snack sticks, and it ended up being a nice ratio.

      This cheese performed as it should by holding up to the temperature of smoking. My smoker got up to 210F at highest and the cheese held up fine.

      Added this cheese to make 10 lb (11 with the cheese) of the Oven Roasted Garlic sausage (seasoning blend available from Sausage Maker) and it worked really well. Flavor added to the sausage seasoning and it didn’t become a disappearing mush when cooked on the grill. Beats the store bought cheese sausage any day of the week.

      Q Has anyone ground this into hamburger meat when grinding? answer now

      I'm sure somebody has done so, but we recommend that our cheese is mixed manually into the meat so it doesn't get lost or disappear.

      Q Does this need to be kept refrigerated? answer now

      Once you receive the cheese it should be either refrigerated or frozen, or processed into sausages

      Q Does your powdered cellulose, or any other ingredient container gluten? answer now

      Hi Jeff, good question.. the producer's spec sheets on all of our cheeses do not list gluten anywhere. It is our understanding that the cellulose used in our cheeses does not contain gluten.
