Doesn't look much different other than a few shades darker..will post some when they come out of the wrapper. I just used a cold weber grill and a 2-3 hour smoke tube. Dont use any heat! When the tube quit smoking, I took it off and wrapped it. Did some gouda, baby swiss, parmesan, and some cheddars. Best to do at night or on a cool day. I'm dying to test that "wait 3 weeks" theory ETA..I smoked a couple bricks of cream cheese over the weekend and man..if you never tried it before I HIGHLY recommend it!
