    It's a cold rainy day and I have a mouthful of gauze from the dentist. Knowing I was gonna be home in pain I figured I'd smoke some cheese. I picked up four blocks yesterday, sharp cheddar, mozz, pepper jack and monterey jack. Smoked them on the UDS with 4 pieces of bridgeford and apple wood. I let the TBS flow for about 2 hours and vacuumed packed them. One question I have is how long do you guys and gals let it mellow in the fridge?

    Yep 2 weeks at least. I opened mine this past weekend, and it's even better tonight on cheese burgers. Just seems to get more and more mellow, less harsh. Careful with those molars. Don't want to get dry socket. I had my wisdom teeth out 5 years ago. The doc said no alcohol, no citrus juice, no drinking through a straw. 2 days later I was sucking hurricanes at my Mardi Gras party. I got lucky I guess.

    Yup, 2 weeks sitting and then you will have slices of nice mellow smoke flavor throughout. Though I have found that a day or so before the 2 weeks I end up opening a package, can't help it but it does get better as it sits.

    Thats one of the reason for me to not smoke any cheese yet is the waiting for 2 weeks. I really like to eat it but I guess I'll have to learn how to wait. But until I do learn I'll still keep looking at ya'lls and drooling over it.
