As you can see, this is a recipe for a crowd of people but it sure is good! :-D

Mac and Cheese


Top with crushed goldfish cracker
8 cups shredded cheese
1.5 TSP Granulated Onion
1.5 TSP Granulated Garlic
3 TSP Pepper
3 TSP Salt
1/2 stick Velveeta
3 cups of milk
6 cans of cheddar cheese soup
3 16oz bags of XL Elbow Pasta


1. Cook the pasta to al dente, put in foil pan.
2. In a sauce pan combine the soup, milk, velveta and spices. Once melted, add to noodles and mix.
3. Top with shredded cheese and goldfish crackers.
4. Cook in the smoker at 300 for about an hour.
5. Sometimes I will also add cooked bacon.

I would recommend giving the smoked mac and cheese recipe from ManCaveMeals a try. Here is the link to it.

I recently made a variation of it and it turned out great. Instead of Chorizo I used some pork tenderloin that I had left over and substituted some of my rib rub in place of the chipotle powder or my wife would have cried foul for it being too spicy, Also added a Panko bread crumb topping toward the end. I made it on my Performer with cherry wood smoke. Here are some pics of the way it turned out.

I like this one.

Buffalo-Chicken Macaroni and Cheese

I've also used pulled pork instead of chicken.

Here is a one-pot recipe which uses uncooked macaroni that I got from Sister DivaHerself in the "I make the best......" thread. I haven't tried it yet, but it will be my next batch for sure.

I use a big bag of elbow pasta, boil it and when draoned, add velveta cheese until you think its too much then add some more

Mac & cheese was always a treat growing up an it is one of my top 5 comfort foods. This was the recipe I grew up on and still enjoy today hope it is what your looking for.

Boil up the pasta 1 lb
1 3/4 cup milk (Whole milk is there any other kind)
2 tbl butter (the real stuff)
Chunk up 1 lb of Velveta type cheese
1 cup shredded cheddar
1/2 tsp mustard powder
1/4 tsp nutmeg
Pinch of cayenne

Boil pasta drain do not rinse and toss with the butter and shredded cheddar put this into an 11X9 greased casserole.

Heat the milk over low heat add the mustard powder cayenne and the nutmeg once steam rises( do not boil !!!!) from the milk stir in the velveta once combined pour over pasta and bake in a 350 deg oven 1 hr.

Now every time I see or hear this I can't help but to think of the Friends episode with Joey auditioning for the show "Mac & C.H.E.E.S.E." :cool:

I think the secret to good mac and cheese is making the roux before you add the cheese. Always helps mine from separating into a grease slick. Never done baked mac and cheese though.

Thanks for all the great recipes I am surely going to try a few of them!

I have made mac'n'cheese six ways from Sunday and none can compare to this fabulous recipe:

My Smoked Macaroni & Cheese With Chorizo listed above is really great, but this is good also and it's 'creamy'....

Flat_Rate 02-23-2013 01:28 AM

Possibly the best mac'n'cheese I have ever made.
