    Got 2 lbs of Cheddar smoking tonight. I won't be touching it until Christmas 2016. My original plan was to smoke it on Christmas day, but eating & drinking got in the way, then work, then weather... So finally it's happening tonight. 

    I was going to take some before pictures, but camera was dead. So here's one off my phone. Cheese has been on for about 1/2hr.


    I'm going to run the full load of pellets (12-13hrs) let rest, vac pac....see you next Christmas.

    Thanks.  I think it will be fun to have a "milestone" cheese for various occasions.

    4hrs later AMNPS is still chugging along. Still not seeing much colour on the cheese.

    No worries. It'll get nice and smokey when it's done. Next Christmas, it'll be amazing.

    That's what I like to see, a little bit at a time.  It allows you to watch smoke more often.

    Oh yeah... It'll be good for Christmas day 2016. At most, I'll probably use one of the blocks, the other will stay and rest for some other occasion.

    12-13h? I like that.

    Christmas 2016? You are a patient man. Hope you have a temperature controlled vault.

    Make sure you come back in a year with taste notes.

    Happy New Year to you and yours.

    I have other cheese to eat, so no worries there.  Yeah, I got a small fridge I use as a cheese "cave".
    Nope. Store bought.
