Here's the lastest revision of my Smoked Macaroni & Cheese recipe!  You can use this recipe of your own favorite recipe and smoke it on the kamado!

 

 

Smoked Macaroni & Cheese
 
Ingredients:
 
2 to 2 1/2 cups uncooked macaroni noodles (cooked per box instructions)
1 1/4 cups milk
2 eggs, beaten
1/2 stick melted butter
4 strips of bacon, cooked and crumbled
1/2 teaspoon chipotle powder
4 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese, divided
Grated parmesan cheese
Salt and pepper to taste
 
Directions:
 
Preheat your grill or smoker to 350°F.  Cook the macaroni per box instructions and drain.  Add the milk, eggs, melted butter, chipotle powder, 2 cups of the shredded cheddar, and some grated parmesan cheese back to the drained macaroni and mix well.  Transfer to your baking dish.  Top with remaining shredded cheddar and a little more grated parmesan cheese.  Add cracked black pepper to taste.
 
Cook on the grill at 350°F for 30 minutes and then ramp the temp up to 400 degrees and cook until golden brown on top and bubbly in the center, about 10-15 more minutes.  Let cool, serve, and be BLOWN AWAY!

I saw this older video along with the refreshed version making buffalo mac and cheese.

 

What size is the stoneware dish that you put the mixture in?

I made your meatloaf and Mac and cheese today for dinner.

The meatloaf was good. Probably best meatloaf I've had. That sauce is great on the meatloaf.

But the mac and cheese....holy $&@?!!!! Seriously, that is by far the best mac and cheese I've ever had. A family of 5 (including kids ages 6, 9, and 11) ate a 1 1/2 pound meatloaf and almost the full recipe of mac and cheese. The smokiness of the macaroni and cheese is shocking. I like heavy smoke so I used hickory. I wouldn't change a thing!!!

I can't thank you enough for posting this. It's absolutely amazing.

      Man Cave Mustard Recipe:
       
      1 cup whole mustard seeds
      1 cup mustard powder
      2 cups Guinness beer
      1 1/2 cups malt vinegar
      5 teaspoons all-purpose flour
      3 tablespoons honey
      1/2 cup brown sugar
      2 teaspoons salt
      2 teaspoons freshly ground black pepper
      3/4 teaspoon ground turmeric
      1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
      1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
       
      Place the mustard seeds in a stainless steel mixing bowl and add 1 cup of the malt vinegar and 1/2 cup of the beer. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate 8 hours or overnight.
       
      Combine the remaining ingredients in a sauce pan and bring to a simmer over medium heat. When you achieve a simmer, add the mustard seeds with their liquid and bring back to a simmer. Let simmer, stirring fairly constantly for 5 to 6 minutes. Remove from the heat and let cool for a few minutes. Transfer to mason jars or other air tight containers and refrigerate. This mustard will keep for at least six months in the fridge and probably longer. This recipe makes a little over a pint of finished mustard.
       
      This mustard can be modified from this stage into a lot of different things. If you want a sweet honey mustard, add honey until you achieve the taste you like. If you want a spicier mustard, either add some additional cayenne pepper while simmering or add some prepared horseradish to the mustard after it has cooled.
       
      Enjoy!

      Chicken is my wife’s flavor and I like to mix it up so I went with a Shawarma yeast. Started out with some chicken thighs that were on sale.

      Shinned and deboned and cut them in half.

      Bones were saved for making stock at a later time.

      Next I made up a yogurt based shawarma marinade. Here are the ingredients:
      1 cup plain whole milk Greek yogurt
      5 cloves of garlic
      ¼ cup of freshly squeezed lemon juice
      ¼ cup of apple cider vinegar
      2 tbsp. of olive oil
      2 tbsp. of ketchup
      1 teaspoon cloves
      1 teaspoon salt
      1 teaspoon paprika
      ½ teaspoon cumin
      ½ teaspoon caraway (ground fennel)
      ½ teaspoon cardamon
      ½ teaspoon of oregano or thyme
      ½ teaspoon cinnamon
      ½ teaspoon nutmeg
      ½ teaspoon crushed peppercorn
      ¼ teaspoon of cayenne pepper
      ¼ teaspoon ground ginger
       
       

       
       

       
       
      Everybody in the pool

      and then thoroughly mixed.

      The thighs now went into pool for a nice long rest.

      Next I made up some Tzatziki. Here are the ingredients: (From Chef John on FoodWishes.com)
      2 cups Greek yogurt
      1 large cucumber, peeled, grated, tossed with 1/2 teaspoon of salt
      4 cloves garlic, very finely minced
      juice of half a lemon or vinegar to taste
      3 tbsp. chopped fresh dill and/or mint
      salt, pepper, to taste
       



      Next up was the Hummus ingredients.
      One 15-ounce can (425 grams) chickpeas, also called garbanzo beans
      1/4 cup (59 ml) fresh lemon juice, about 1 large lemon
      1/4 cup (59 ml) tahini (we used Krinos)
      Half of a large garlic clove, minced
      2 tablespoons olive oil, plus more for serving
      1/2 to 1 teaspoon kosher salt, depending on taste
      1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
      2 to 3 tablespoons water
      Dash of ground paprika for serving

       
       

      Then some Persian Rice (From Bosco)

      2 cups of basmati rice
      3 ½ cups of chicken stock/broth
      2 tbsp of butter
      ½ tsp turmeric
      ¼ tsp cumin
      Kosher salt and pepper

      And finally a Mediterranean Tomato Salad.

       
       

      Now I can cook the Shawarma. Broke out my good skewers. (Closest I can come to a Shawarma rotisserie) I used two so I could better control them on the grill.

      Now I tightened up the stops to help keep in the marinade and juices

      and placed them on the grill.

      Flipped them after 5 to 6 minutes.

      Here is everything plated up family style with some cucumber slices, baby pickles, pita bread and a Ballast Point Grapefruit Sculpin IPA.

      So Good! My wife loved everything and said it was the better that anything she’s ever ordered at a restaurant.
      Thanks for looking.

      Hello, after much research on this board, i bought a Kamado Joe Class a few weeks ago.
       
      I have noticed that the entire exterior surface is now cracked and even to the point of the enamel chipping off.  The place I bought it from directed me to the manufacturer.  I sent in photos and description.  Effe, in customer service, responded that is was "crazing" and they were not going to do anything about it.
       
      Does anyone have a recommendation or similar experience.  It blows my mind that a $1000 product would be defective so quickly and not be supported by the manufacturer.
       
      Any help on this?
