    I got the recipe from a thread that Les did. I used gouda cheese and smoked with hickory.

    This is an outstanding recipe. ABT's are great too!!! Enjoy!!![​IMG][​IMG]

    Great looking food. I need to try that mac and cheese. I have one  that I make with 7 cheeses and it is really expensive so this would be a great alternative.

    There is an awesome mac & cheese recipe on the back of a velveta cheese box. I know, but check it out! It's the one that my mother used to make 50 years ago. I don't think it has ever changed.
