So I have not been doing much lately,,, Imagine that!!! LOL I thought this would be fast enough after work last night so I gave it a try 

It came out great,, I followed @Tumbleweed  post http://www.smokingmeatforums.com/t/232594/no-boil-smoked-mac-cheese

Thanks TW!! 

I was doing great till company showed up and I did not stir, and i could have taken it out a little sooner,, was a little dry but not bad. 

3 cups uncooked macaroni

1 stick butter

12 oz shredded cheddar (I used Mexi blend) 

4 oz shredded mozzarella

4 cups milk

salt & pepper to taste







Next time I think I will add some shredded rotissori chicken to it.

This was the reason I did not stir and she was worth every moment of it,,, just 4 months old and getting so big,, first grandkid


Sister in white, wife in middle and brother in law, on right,,, Little ones mom went shopping for a while and we got to watch and play with her,,,

Oh man, that pic of the browned mac and cheese has me droolin'!

Adding the chicken is a good idea too - takes it from being a side to the main show - would just about be a dinner in a single dish

I just made this recipe today. Any tips on getting it a little creamier? It was good but it had a rough texture to it.

I was thinking about velveta cheese,, or maybe half and half instead of milk,,,,

I am thinking of making some for a family reunion. It would be the first time for me to try this and I have heard it's good.
What wood is suggested for smoked Mac and cheese?
I might just use your recipe driedstick. Sounds easy enough.
And how long roughly does it take to smoke?
