I needed a side to go with some Faux Burnt Ends I was making out of chuck roasts yesterday. I also wasn't happy with the last recipe I had made for this dish a couple of weeks ago & wanted to try another, as we love our mac & cheese. The recipe I chose was found right here at SMF by member bpopovitz. He posted it about 5 years. It looks like he hasn't been online here in a while, but wherever you are bpop- thank you. Great flavor & all made in ONE dish. I did tinker with it a bit, but it's still basically what he came up with.
3 cups uncooked macaroni
1 stick butter
12 oz shredded cheddar
4 oz shredded mozzarella
4 cups milk
salt & pepper to taste
Pour out the mac & cut up the butter-
Add your cheeses, milk, salt & pepper-
Smoke it up-
I smoked it at about 250 for an hour, then bumped it up to 270, as the meat was about done. You could probably do it in an oven in an hour at 350 too, if you had too, but don't forget the Liquid Smoke if doing so.
