You realize that smoked Gouda stores better in a cold mountain climate (like here). Let me know if I can store some for you.

Yep...isn't that something how terrible it tastes but how it changes within two weeks. Mine are about 8 weeks now but we've been sampling since 6 weeks ago. That's what started me on a quest to have a bunch more done before it gets too warm out( no idea when that is lately).

i smoked about 4 hrs and i use the AMNPS.  i use pellets. for this smoke i had a blend of pellets from Louisiana Grills. i now have a good supply of Lumberjack pellets. i truly enjoy them and they are 100% wood, not blended or flavored.
anyways i have done a lot of different cheese smokes since then and have settled on oak pellets, 4 hr smoke. i like to keep my smoker at 60 to 70 degrees .

MR T has a complete step by step as how to do cheese and he is the cheese guru !!!!!
i have messaged him and he always replies quickly ... helped me out alot. the main thing i have found is LEAVE THE DAMN STUFF ALONE !!!!!

let it cure, sit and mellow ......

by the way i did get that extra fridge ...   HA HA HA  needed the room cause when im brining some bellies ar whatever and want a batch of sausage there is just not enough space in my 1 fridge, and by that i mean my shop fridge, so now there are 2 in the shop and actually saved some space for beer
