Your cheese looks great, i just tried my first cheese smoke and used apple sawdust in the amazensmoker and unfortunately it tastes like an old match. The smoke flavor came out very stale, specially in the aftertaste. I did gouda, mozz, cheddar and sharp cheddar. Its too bad since it was so much cheese but I think the issue was too much smoke, next time ill try to keep it down a little.
maybe in a couple weeks the cheese will mellow enough to eat.
