I smoked a lot of cheese for Christmas presents around Thanksgiving. I made a cocktail shaker smoker and fed the smoke into a cardboard box that I sealed pretty well except for the removable lid. I used apple chips and smoked some cheese for 2 hours; some for 3 hours. I vacuum sealed it and put it in the fridge. Just before Christmas I opened a pack up to try. It had a bitter stale smoke flavor. Looking around at other posts it seems as though I sealed the box too well and the smoke became stale. Is there anything I can do to salvage this batch of cheese or do I ditch it and try over?
