I mostly use apple for cheese.

Pitmaster's Choice should be nice, that stuff smells great!

Welcome to the forum.

 

Depends on your personal taste, all the woods you mentioned plus Hickory, Cherry and Alder. Give them all a try, no need to do all of your cheese at once with one wood. Smoking is fun, stretch it out.

Presently I am smoking fresh cheddar curds and five year old sharp cheddar using a very pale blue/white corn cob smoke. Because the curds are moist they will be pulled at four hours while the cheddar will be pulled in the neighborhood of twenty hours.
