I think I might also only leave it on half the time. The cheese really did soak up a lot of the smoke flavor.
The best news is that I had some left for tonight's dinner as well!
The single chunk of apple worked really well for me. Hickory is slowly working its way out of my grills with a few minor exceptions. I just happened to come into a good bit of apple wood a while back when my GFs father cut a tree out of his yard. I don't particularly time my cook on this dish. I just leave it on until the cheese on top starts to brown and the temp you cook at can affect it as well. If you can cook it on up at 300 degrees, don't hesitate to do that either. This dish is a favorite with the people I'm feeding :)
