I wanted to smoke something out of the ordinary. After giving it some thought and asking my wife what she thought, I decided to try macaroni and cheese.
I searched the Internet for clues and found an excellent recipe from DADGUM good recipes. (It is the recipe section of the Masterbuilt website.) The recipe is called “Four-Cheese Smoked Mac ‘n’ Cheese” Instead of giving the entire recipe here, I’ll just link to it for you to visit their website. (Click Here For Recipe)
I served it for lunch on Saturday and my wife said it was delicious. One of our sons and his wife came by later that evening and they tried it and liked it a lot. Isaac said it reminded him of eating around a campfire.
The next day was Easter Sunday and we invited friends for lunch which included the left overs of this dish. The Smoked Macaroni and Cheese was a big hit with this couple. The even took some home with them.
So on a scale of 1 – 10 this Smoked Macaroni and Cheese is easily an 8. It was suggested that we add crumbled bacon. I am also thinking of kicking it up with minced jalapeno peppers. We’ll see.
A side note on nutrition: I used Dream Fields macaroni as it is more “low carb” than regular macaroni. Since this dish has so much cheese it is very high in fat and would definitely affect your cholesterol. Be warned, it is delicious, but not at all healthy.
