It is not unusual to taste like an ashtray when you first smoke the cheese. Wrap it and throw in the fridge for a month or two. Shouldn't get moldy if you vac seal or wrap tight. If it does, just cut the mold off. Don't freeze as it doesn't freeze well.

I know that Nepas has had cheese vac sealed in his fridge for 12 to 14 months no problem. Never, never eat cheese right out of the smoker.
I like to walk threw life on the path of least resistance. But sometimes the path needs a good kick in the ass.

Thanks GusRobin and Quarlow for the input. I don't have a vac seal but tightly wrapped in plastic and in a freezer bag. Will wait a month before I try again. I hope it gets better  so the wife rewards me lol.
Cheers from a wet smoker in Eastern Ontario ...... rain all day today again. Worst season for rain I've seen in decades.

I went to Kroger and bought Cheddar, Monterey Jack, Swiss. Pepper Jack, Cojack and a few others.  Out of all of them the Pepper Jack was by far the big winner.
