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 19@comcast.net. 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!
