black dots on cheese
SmokingMeatForums.com Top Picks
Not much information offered here. Is this cheese you just purchased? Where the dots present when you sliced the cheese? Has it been stored? If so how and how long?
Take a 1/2 inch slice off behind the black dots and let us know if the dots are still present.
OK, looks like we are gaining. Not knowing your plans for the cheese. Cut it back to where you feel it is clean. Let us know your plans for using or storing it.
Good, cut it back and continue on with your plans then enjoy. It sounds as if a little air may have been present and mold had begun to form. This is no problem as you are taking care of it.
Enjoy your cheese.
Smoking for a given amount of time tells me nothing as I do not know the color or density of your smoke. Learn to smoke your cheese to a desired color rather than time. This way you will be able to replicate your smokes regardless of the color or density of the smoke due to climate changes.
