I just got an MES 30 and my AMNPS is about to be shipped. Today I'll use the smoker for the first time to smoke an asparagus/onion side dish for some steaks I'll be grilling on my Weber. Smoking cheese is one of my goals. I've looked at some of the pics of how some of you smoke cheese and I've got a 3 questions. Do I put the sections of cheese right on the racks or do I wrap them in cheesecloth and hang them from a couple of racks? Since I'll be using the AMNPS, do I not use the MES electric heating element? Do I leave the vent wide open or shut tight?
