Evening fellas and non fellas. Been working on a spread today. Started off with a nice chuck roast. Seasoned with my beef rub and onto the smoker at 225 using pecan

After about 3.5hr IT was 158 so pulled it off and did it mississippi style.
Into a pan with a stick unsalted butter, packet of au jus, 2tbls or packet of ranch dressing, several pepperoncini and a little of the juice. Added some carrots

Double covered in foil and back to the smoker. Pulled it off at about 208° and let rest for 1.5hr while I worked on mac n cheese.

No progress pics for mac n cheese. But here's the recipe
1lb elbow macaroni
2T flour
2T butter
2C heavy cream
1.5lb sharp cheddar
Half lb gouda. I used my smoked gouda
1C sour cream
1C mayo. I used dukes
2T hot sauce
2t SPG
Lb bacon
Half cup panko

Before hand cook bacon in oven until crispy and finely chop

Cook pasta until tender. 7-8min. Drain

In pot melt butter over medium heat. Add flour. Stir until it smells nutty. Add half cup heavy cream. Stir. Will thicken. Add another half cup. Stir. Then add remaining cup. Thicken for a couple minutes. Start adding cheeses slowly. You want to make sure this completely blends in the roux. After all that is together take off heat. Mix in pasta, mayo, sour cream, hot sauce, spg and make sure it mixes well. Pour in an aluminum pan. Mix the bacon with the panko. I ended up with 7.5oz of chopped bacon and mixed with the half cup panko. Spread mixture over top. Place on smoker uncovered at 300-325 for about an hour 15min. Check halfway.

Mixed up before smoker

And my plate. Beef nestled on a mashed taters bed. Covered in brown gravy and I pile of smoked bacon mac. This is our go to smoked mac n cheese recipe and honestly the best I've had. Hope y'all will give it a try

2t SPG? Is that 2 teaspoon of salt pepper and garlic. Two for each ingredient or all three mixed equal parts and two of that mixture?

Beautiful and comforting looking plate of food there Jake! I did a smoked mac and cheese recently with the bacon/panko mixture on the top, it was really good.

I meant to reply last night but fell asleep looking at your plate of food...nap inducing just by looking at it.

My wife likes making the Mississippi pot roast in the crockpot...I gotta get on this version of it.

Thanks Joe. You can smoke it and still finish in crockpot like normal and it will turn out great
