Used the Boss again wind was blowing so I didn't want to play with the Kettle

Gave my neighbor a nice serving,he gave me the Cheese Curd
When he came over to get it he brought me another pack.
You can see the chunks of the Curd it needs more heat to melt

The verdict? Nevermind, See your response. I believe my mother cooked it at 325 to get everything nice and melted.
