        Smoked mac and cheese is awesome!

        Below is the recipe I followed.

        Smoked Mac and Cheese


        2 hours @ 260°


        ½ Stick of Butter
        2 Cups Elbow Macaroni
        1 Cup Sharp Shredded Cheddar Cheese
        1 Cup Cubed or Shredded Colby Cheese
        1.5 Cups Shredded or cubed Monterey Jack Cheese (1 Cup is fine, I just like a tad more Monterey Jack)
        3 Cups Milk
        2 Cups Heavy Whipping Cream
        Seasonings to Taste – Salt, pepper and of course Weekend Dry Rub – also see below for optional “add-ins”

          Attempted this recipe this past weekend. It did not turn out quite like I hoped. Got a little to dry which wasn't the bad part. It definitely took on too much smoke and was a little bitter. I was cooking some armadillo eggs at the same time which turned out fantastic. So my question is should I have covered the mac and cheese after a certain time?

          That's a good question, I'm not totally sure.

          I haven't made the mac and cheese in a few months. I've been looking at other mac n cheese recipes to try to have something to compare it too.

          I've never noticed much of a bitterness, but I am usually consuming some IPAs during the process which kind of numb my palette to anything bitter!

          You will be hooked on smoked Mac and Cheese Attjack I can't believe you've never done it before. So much you can do with it. Sometimes I'll add smoked sausage to it and bacon or left over smoked ham! The last half hour or so I like to add French's Fried Onions to the top or crushed chili cheese Fritos or crushed Dorito's.

            How on Earth did I never think of Chili Cheese Fritos as a mac and cheese topping?

            How? I feel like I've failed myself.

              Best roux I've made yet. I woke up in the middle of the night wondering why my shoulders were aching, then it dawned on me I was stirring that roux for almost an hour!

              Not bad. I'll tweak the recipe a bit next time but the smoke flavor was solid.

                  Placeholder

                  The Slow 'N' Sear turns your grill into a first class smoker and also creates an extremely hot sear zone you can use to create steakhouse steaks.

                  The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

                  Placeholder

                  The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.

                  The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, and home fries. Or pancakes, fajitas, grilled cheese, you name it. Why stink up the house deep frying and spatter all over? Do your fried chicken and calamari outside. Blackstone's Rangetop Combo With Deep Fryer does it all!

                  The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It is absolutely positively without a doubt the best bargain on a smoker in the world. Period. This baby will cook circles around the cheap offset sideways barrel smokers because temperature control is so much easier.
