You'll be blown away by the smoky-cheesy flavors in this Four Cheese Smoked Mac 'n' Cheese. If you've never made macaroni and cheese in a smoker, you're in for a real treat!

What You'll Need:
  • 1 (16-ounce) package elbow macaroni
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3 cups milk
  • 1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese, cut into large chunks
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 cups (8 ounces) extra sharp Cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 2 cups (8 ounces) Gouda cheese, shredded
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) Parmesan cheese, shredded
What To Do:

Will make but will use smoked Gouda instead of plain.

This is ridiculously delicious! You will not have any me.

I have received raves every time I made this, but I prefer hickory chips instead of home-made apple chips

Have made this dish two times now and always get awesome feedback! It's wonderful!

What flavor wood chips are to be used for thi?

Hi there! You can use apple flavored wood chips for a mild flavor, or hickory for a more intense, smoky flavor. Enjoy!

Smoked this for a family gathering, and went so fast. Most comments were it is the best mac and cheese EVER! Having another event this summer and will double the recipe!

Wonderful - entered this in a church smoke/bbq cookoff as a side dish and won first place.

My old e-mail was Rambo I had to find you again with my new e-mail address

Can this recipe be baked in the oven, instead of using a smoker?

Thanks for your comment! Yes, this mac and cheese recipe can be cooked in the oven at 350 degrees for about 45 60 minutes. Enjoy!
