Decided to just use the AMNS and a cardboard box to smoke my cheese rather than drag the smoker to the back deck. (Mr. Smokey lives in the dungeon).... 1st go at this so smoking mozzarella, mild chedder, extra sharp chedder and swiss. Loaded up AMNS w/half load of hickory and lit both ends Cheese is just on an oven rack Add a box and let the magic begin... 2½ hours in and pulling all but the extra sharp chedder 4 hours and time to pull the extra sharp Man - I wanna bite in to that right now...but from what I've read on here...if I do I'll never smoke cheese again!!! Vacuum sealed and waiting...for weeks! Smoking cheese is masochistic!! Hoping payout will be well worth the torture of waiting. Extra sharp on left, then mozzarella, swiss and mild chedder. To make all this worse -> I'm lactose intolerant! (and right now..I don't care)!
