Smoked Mac and Cheese

Cooking is a family affair here at Three Guys Outside. I was washing the dishes after dinner one night when my 9-year old approached me and said, “Dad, I have an idea. Wouldn’t it be good if we smoked mac and cheese? And put bacon in it?” And here we are, smoked mac and cheese!

Smoked Mac & Cheese

Smoked Mac & Cheese

3 cups elbow macaroni
7.5 Tbs butter
4.5 Tbs all-purpose flour
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
3 cups milk
3 cups shredded cheddar cheese, divided
8 oz Velveeta, cubed

Cook macaroni according to package directions, strain and set aside. In a skillet or saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. Stir in flour, salt and pepper until smooth. Gradually add milk. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2-3 minutes or until thickened. Reduce heat. Add just over 2 cups cheddar cheese and process cheese, stirring until cheese is melted.

Transfer cooked macaroni to a greased cast iron skillet (we used a 12″) or a casserole dish. Pour cheese sauce over macaroni and mix well. Sprinkle remaining cheddar cheese on top. Smoke uncovered on 350 degrees for 30 minutes.
