huh? You don't care if you find the exact one as long as you find something else that might taste the same so others can find cheeses in their area to produce a pizza that tastes like Mack's or even better?
What if we can't find what YOU
find to be the right one (or better?)
First, I think most of the people following this thread are doing so merely to see you succeed first and foremost. To change your position after almost 2 years is, well, unfair to us. Chances are many of us, besides yourself & a couple others, have no emotional ties to the Boardwalk or Mack's but just following the process here.
Secondly, there's always the challenge of being able to reverse engineer something, which others may be still hanging around to accomplish. Saying now that finding the exact cheese isn't the priority is almost offensive to anyone that ever participated in reverse engineering something, especially here!
I think it's time scott r asks his friend what kind of cheese they use and get it over with already. Then everybody can try the "complete" recipe, if you will, to see what all the fuss is about and judge if it was worth this much time; and to think, you weren't even the starter of the Boardwalk thread, but managed to virtually take it over and keep it alive all this time!
