Got my A-maze-n smoker this weekend. Popped it in and burned oil off for about 30 minutes. Filled with Hickory sawdust, and smoked 2 trays of cheese for about 4 1/2 hours. Only burned about 1 row of sawdust! Nice thin blue smoke coming out the exaust, temp never got above 55 inside the smoker.
I know it needs to age for at least 2 weeks, have all of it vacuumed sealed in the fridge.
The question is: Should it all taste like 'burn roasted marshmallows' when it first comes out of the smoker? I wanted to try some before sealing it so I tasted all flavors, and they all have the same nasty flavor. I'm sure I done everything just like I should, but at this point, it tastes NOTHING like the smoked cheese I buy in the store!
Please tell me that it won't taste that way in a couple off weeks??????
