    I think you can eat the Mozz right away. For sure after a day or so.

  11. Looks real good. What temp were they at. Looks like they started to sweat a little. But not melt.

    i did not get the temp when i pulled them out, they were sweating a bit and the mozz cheese did start to get soft.  the only heat to them was from the AMNS. i'm gonna wait about 14-20 more days before i open them up.

    Great Job!

    Sucks that you have to smoke up another batch...Oh Well!

    You may want to place the AMNS over to one side of your smoker, and even make a foil tent.  This will help deflect the heat from going directly up, and also keep any drips off the sawdust.  Make a bunch, because you're gonna run out.

    Glad it turned out so good. I freeze mine so I don't eat it all at. Smoked cheese makes the best grilled cheese sammies.
