Oh yeah ... looks yummy!  :)

Now if ya happen to misplace one of those bags for .... 12 months or so you will get a real tasty treat.  ;)

Last year I was smoking for Thanksgiving and was storing the bags in my fruit cellar and one of them made their way behind some pepper jars and I just found it a few weeks ago. All I can say is WOW!  :P

Tested cheese after just shy of 3 weeks. Tastes like a ash tray. Give it more time I guess

TC, which cheese did you taste?  Soft cheeses absorb smoke more readily than harder cheeses, so if you tasted your mozz, it might be quite a bit smokier than your cheddar.  (Although, folks do report that softer cheeses age faster than harder cheeses.)  Other thoughts are that you might consider using a lighter wood next time, or reducing how long you apply smoke, to dial in the smoke to your taste preferences.
