    Aloha J,

    I live close to  a macadamia nut orchard and the owner lets me have all the wood I want for my Smokes.  The the wood gives off a very subtle nutty  smoke and I've used it for smoking ribs, marlin, and wild pig.   I think it will do well with cheese.

    Cool! I guess I'll know for sure in a few hrs, only sliced a couple of chunks 1/2 " thick, 2" x 3" so I dont think it will need more than 2 hrs

    Wow, all the exotic woods you guys get. Around here the only wood that is plentiful is oak.
