The best Smoked Mac-N-Cheese recipe from Zack Thompson’s kitchen to yours!
“I found the best Mac -n- Cheese recipe a few years ago. Try this for the Big Game, or any day, if you have time!
Here’s the basic recipe if you want to give it a try.
2 cups elbow macaroni
1/2 stick of butter
3 cups milk
2 cups heavy whipping cream
1 package shredded cheddar cheese (the ones you see at the grocery store, 8oz I believe)
1 package combination of colby and monterey jack cheese cubes (same as above 8oz I believe)
salt and pepper
Put the dry macaroni elbows in a pan (somewhere around 9×13 size) – Yes, dry macaroni. You don’t need to pre cook.
Melt a stick of butter, and then pour it over the macaroni
Add cheddar cheese
Add colby and monterey jack cheese
Add heavy whipping cream
Salt and pepper to taste
Give it a stir (I actually stirred it another time or two during the early cooking process).
Into the smoker at 250 degrees for approximately 1:50 minutes (I did 1:54 to be exact)
Save a little of the shredded cheddar when you’re preparing, and add a layer on top now (after the 1:50 in the smoker).
Into the oven on broil for a few minutes until you get the desired color you’re looking for
Smokey, creamy, noodles done to perfection. This is a good one.
