Today is Thursday and I really should have thought of this much sooner. We are going to a potluck party on Saturday evening and I want to make and smoke a fatty on Saturday afternoon. I put a pound or so of caraway spiced Gouda in the smoker today but I want to use some of it in the fatty. I will use ground pork, sauerkraut, those white bratwurst that are so good braised in beer, caraway, fennel and the cheese from today's smoke unless there is some reason why I shouldn't use it. Will it be okay to use that soon? I know that it will be better in a couple of weeks or more but time is pressing.
