My first and only time I smoked cheese was about 10 days ago. When I was done, it didn't have as much color change than I thought it should have gotten. But it was my first time so I left it be. It smelled good and all. So I vacuum packed it up and stuck it in the fridge. And tonight I took one of the vacuum packs out and sliced a little cause I heard it is okay to taste after 8 days. Not planning on opening them all and eating them, just a little taste, ya know. I had planned on leaving them for 2-3 weeks. When I opened it, it had a fairly good smoke smell to it. However, I think it could have had a stronger flavor.
So my question is . . . can I put it back on the smoker now that I had smoked, wrapped and refrigerated in attempt to get a better/stronger flavor? I would think why not? But then again, will the flavor continue to "grow" as time goes by? I know that's why you wrap it and wait to eat so the cheese can absorb the flavor, but how much more flavor would it get between now and another week, or so?
Anyone care to share their past experiences that will shed some light? Thanks.
