Rude awakening after being in Florida for a week. Snow???? Sheesh! So smoked some Mild cheddar, Mozzarella, Monterey Jack, and Colby Jack yesterday. Three hours with Hickory/Apple mix. Wiped it down when finished and wrapped it in Saran Wrap. 3 weeks minimum of mellowing seems to work well, longer is better. I found out that using the AMNPS can get warm enough that a rack too low will allow the cheese to start to melt somewhat. Other than that, no problems.
