I smoke a lot of Gouda for my wife. I did provolone one time, but it was not that good. Finding unsliced provolone is not that easy.

If there's no cheese shop or good deli in your neck of the woods, hit up the cheese department in a nice supermarket. Like Mariano's in the Midwest or the equivalent in the South (Publix?). They have tons of high-quality unsliced cheeses. Walmart-type packaged sliced cheeses are only good for sandwiches or breakfast.

Another note on provolone. The more common type is provolone dolce, which has a smoother, creamier taste. There's also provolone piccante, which is sharper and saltier. (Like mild vs. sharp cheddar.) I assume the latter would taste best smoked.

I love smoked mozzarella. It is so good on a sandwich.

use a cold smoke process.
I'd use a jack cheese or a softer cheese before moving to harder cheddars.
It's been time since I smoked anything.
