It's pretty cool outside down here in Atlanta, but I was determined to smoke something. I opened up the fridge and saw a block of colby jack and a block of sharp cheddar cheese and decided to give my first cheese a whirl. I put about a row and a quarter of cherry pellets in the AMNPS and the cheese has been smoking fairly steady for about an hour. I'm thinking I will let it smoke for at least three hours. My question is, does cheese need to mellow after smoking, and if so, how long?
