I am going to have to try a long cheese smoke with only one side of the AMNS light when cold weather rolls around again. Cheese smoking season is getting close to an end here in Husker land. I might try one more cheese smoke early in the morning when it is still chilly this month.

Hi Duff !!

You can always take a jug 3/4 full of water, and freeze it. Then put that in the smoker between the cheese & the AMNS or AMNPS:

As far as time in the cold smoke process, which I've never done before, I'm seeing smoke times from two or three hours all the way up to nine!!!!    Is there an average where you can't go too far wrong?

How about a soft cheese like a brie?    Or isn't that a good style to try?    And one final question:   Am I going to have better results with, say, a sixty-day aged cheddar versus a four-year cheddar, or doesn't it make too much difference?     Thanks, guys.
 
I believe it comes down to personal taste. We like them smokier. Start with little smoke. Adjust on the second batch.

I wouldn't smoke expensive cheeses. Some have fine flavours you would miss when blended with smoke flavour.
 
I've done brie (inexpensive ones). Came out nice. If you don't eat the rind you have to shave it off before smoking - smoke won't penetrate. Which makes the handling a bit difficult depending on how creamy the brie is.
