Default Smoked Mac & Cheese--Advice Needed

Hey, I normally bake my mac & cheese for about 20-25 minutes in my little indoor electric oven at 350F.

I've never smoked Mac & Cheese.

Do I just do it the same way in the smoker, with a wood chunk or two--same temperature and duration? Or will it take on too much smoke flavor?

I've done it. Go easy on the smoke, a well seasoned pit maybe enough. It gets stronger the next day too.

If it's only mac i wouldn't even bother using wood. Like C said it get's pretty smoky. If it's going on with meat i'd definitely foil.

No wood here either, mac and cheese takes on smoke very easily. Otherwise, just like an oven.

Consider smoked paprika instead of liquid smoke. If you love liquid smoke, fantastic!

What about using the cold smoked cheddar in the mac and cheese in the oven.
Any thoughts on that.

I'd follow LordlyMantis' lead and cold smoke my cheese first, then make the mac and cheese using your standard method w/ the cold smoked cheese. Been thinking about doing this for some time now.

I'm totally confused. You guys and gal don't get your mac and cheese from a Kraft box?

Yes, using cold smoked cheese and making the mac-n-cheese in the oven works just fine. I do that from time to time and people love it.

I have found that smoking a box of mac-n-cheese gives things an off flavor. I use a metal or glass pan, they work better than cardboard
