  4. Generally accepted that two weeks is the minimum rest time. 1 to 3+ months it just gets better.

    At least 3 weeks, for a 3 hour smoke.

    Looks good, usually it takes a couple weeks to mellow out. However if you tasted it and liked it go for it. You should save a block for later use and see if you can tell the difference.

    Congrats on your cheese smoke. Now you will have to get stocked up.
    I usually like letting my cheese sit for 30 days. My sons say after 10 days it's fine for them.

    I did once, nobody cared for it. The texture changed for the worse.

    Go for it - it' a pretty cheap. My family and I just didn't care for it.

    I got some in the smoker as we speak it's always been good after it's sealed and rested for a week or two. I am testing my new amazen smoker on this run of cheese. Got to be better than the Bradley pucks
