    Decided on some babybacks and mac&cheese for the game today. The jerk chicken was so good the other day that i used a modified jerk rub for the ribs.I added more honey grandulars,dark brown sugar and afew other things to change it up some.I rubbed them up the night before and added some more rub when i took them out to sit while i got the duo ready and up to temp.

    Put them on the duo at 230 with some cherry and mesquite chunks.Although it was cold today the duo ran like a champ i was able to keep it chugging along between 230-255 all day! I used a mop of apple juice,rum,and a little brown sugar for the first 2 hours.Then after the 2 hour mark i foiled them up with some of the mop juice.And put on the mac&cheese!

    Left them in the foil for 1.5 hours then removed the ribs and coated them with honey and let them smoke for another 55 mins.I gave the mac&cheese a stir and taste and decided to leave that on for awhile too. I didn't get too many pictures at this point cause i was watching the game but i did get alot of the finished product!! Here's the ribs.

    And the mac& cheese,the cheeses i used were gouda,fontellia,and mild cheddar!Man, it was tasty!!

    Looks awesome!!! I need some pork ribs.  The boys in the house like the beef ones better but I think I need to put my foot down sometime soon. 

    The smoked mac-n-cheese looks awesome also.  I can't get the boys (yes, them again) to eat anything but nasty Kraft

    Maybe I need to look into getting some new boys!!!!

    Thanks for the qview

    Yes sir yee thoses are some fine looking ribs and I love Gouda  in your mac & cheese. Have you every tried Gruyere cheese in the mac & cheese I did and it;s out of this world.

    I have not tried gruyere cheese in my mac&cheese,i have had it before it is a real creamy and smooth cheese.I can see where that would be good.When we do make it we write down what kind of cheese we used and then play with them to try some differant types.But i wil try the gruyere next time for sure!!

     3 CUPS MACARONI

     3 TBL. BUTTER

     3 TBL. AP FLOUR

     2 1/2 CUPS MILK

     2 1/2 CUPS HEAVY CREAM

     3 CUPS SHREADED CHEESE,,ANY CHEESE YA WANT

     SALT TO TASTE

     PEPPER TO TASTE

    ONION POWDER TO TASTE

    GARLIC POWDER TO TASTE

     IN SAUCE PAN BRING TO BOIL WATER AND COOK MACARONI FOR 3 MINS.  DRAIN PASTA AND PUT IN MED. FOIL PAN

     IN SAUCE PAN ON MED. HEAT MELT BUTTER AND STIR IN FLOUR AND SPICES.

     ADD MILK AND CREAM HEAT UNTILL THICKENS,STIRRING OCCASIONALLY TO KEEP FROM STCKING

     ADD SHREADED CHEESE,STIR UNTILL MELTED

     MIX CHEESE SAUCE TO MACARONI IN FOIL PAN.

     FOR INCREASED BATCH SIZE ADD

     TO EVERY 1 CUP OF MACARONI:

     1 TBL. BUTTER

     1 TBL. AP FLOUR

     1 1/2 CUPS MILK OR CREAM

     1 CUP CHEESE

     TO SMOKE :

     PLACE MIXED MACARONI  IN FOILPAN INTO SMOKER.

     RUN SMOKER AS NORMAL TEMPS BETWEEN 225-250

     STIR EVERY 45-60MINS.

     TAKE A TASTE WHILE STIRRING TO CHECK FOR NOODLE DONENESS AND SMOKE FLAVOR

     COOK UNTILL MACARONI IS TENDER AND CHEESE SAUCE IS THICKENED. ABOUT 2-3 HOURS

     I ALWAYS CHECK THE TASTE FOR THE SMOKE, IT IS VERY EASY TO OVER SMOKE MAC&CHEESE

     USE ANY TYPE WOOD YOU WANT MOST WORK WELL
