with all we play with here at the ranch, this is the first mozzarella, so out of the the grate i have processed not fresh. i understand it is a short smoke but here is the real question??? with all the experience out here would you treat them the same??? or treat the processed more like a soft white such as monterey jack or provelone for example???

Thanks in advance,

I would just say go with it the same for now and see what the results are when it has sat for a while vs immediately, then adjust from there for the next time. My opinion is it comes down to personal taste...I don't like a heavy smoke taste but many do. My smokes, whether cheese or meats is based on how I like it...and I have had others say it would be better this way or that way (which I take all criticism and compliments and decipher where to go with them or to apply them).

So, basically I just say go for it any way you prefer. It's all good in the end! is reader supported and as an Amazon Associate, we may earn commissions from qualifying purchases.
