My first Mac & Cheese

Thread Starter 

Just wanted to say that this forum, and you guys are awesome. I'm still pretty new to smoking, but working on it.

I've been a M&C nut since I was a kid, and trust me that was many moons ago. So here goes!!

I found this recipe and figured that it couldn't hurt to try it.

This stuff was amazing!!


Four Cheese Mac & Cheese


What you'll need

1 (16 ounce) package of elbow macaroni

1/4 cup butter

1/4 cup, all purpose flower

3 cups milk

1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese - cut into large chunks

1 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon black pepper - I used a lot, Love pepper!

2 cups (8 oz.) Gouda cheese, shredded

2 cups (8oz.) Extra Sharp Cheddar, shredded

1 cup (4oz.) Parmesan cheese shredded               ( shred all cheese yourself from the block. Don't use the bag cheese. Much better!)


What to do

1. Cook pasta according to package directions, in a sauce pan, melt butter, and whisk flour in to the butter. Cook over medium heat for 2 minutes. Whisk in milk and bring to a boil. Cook for 5 minutes until thickened. Stir in cream cheese until mixture is smooth.


2. Combine 1 cup of Cheddar, 1 cup Gouda, Parmesan cheese, pasta, and cream sauce in a large bowl. Spoon in to a 11 x 9 1/2"  aluminum pan. Coated with non stick spray. Sprinkle top with remaining cheddar, and Gouda


3. Place in the smoker and cook 1 hr. at 225 deg. Use wood of your choice.


Thanks for letting me share this. I tried this one with mesquite. The mesquite was a little much for the family. So, the next night I did it with velveeta, I just laid the velveeta next to a cream cheese box, for measurement. Did not want to over do it.


Just added left over smoked elk kielbasa, and smoked with apple. The MRS. actually used the word (Heavenly):yahoo:


Thanks again for letting me share!!
