My husband’s favorite thing in the world is, well… smoked things.
From smokey mezcals, to smoked cheeses, to smokey colognes, it’s pretty easy to pick up on his preferences.
And since he lives with me, his second favorite thing in the world, by default, is mac and cheese! Lol.
So when I was coming up with a new mac and cheese recipe, I had him in mind.
This smoked mac and cheese recipe is all that is good in the world! It’s creamy, rich and perfectly savory with deep smokey notes.

How to Make It
Making smoked mac and cheese is super easy!
To begin, boil your pasta and cook it until it’s al dente. Strain and set aside.
I used Cavatappi Pasta because I think it’s a perfect shape for mac and cheese. But you could totally use another noodle of your preference!
Meanwhile, melt some butter in a pan over medium heat.
Once it’s melted add minced garlic, red pepper flakes, and a pinch of salt.
Before the garlic begins to brown, add 2 tbsp of flour and whisk until it’s combined with the butter. This is now a roux and it should cook for 2-4 minutes so that the flour taste is gone.
Once the roux is cooked, slowly add the milk and stir to combine. Once the mixture starts to bubble, continue stirring and watch as it turns into a super thick sauce.
At this point, slowly stir in the heavy cream.
Let this mixture simmer and bubble away for a bit until the sauce has thickened and the milk mixture has slightly reduced.
Now it’s time for the cheeses.
I like to use Red Apple Smoked Gouda and Smoked Cheddar since it’s got such a perfect smokey taste.
I always buy Red Apple Cheese because it’s one of my favorite brands and they use applewood to smoke their cheeses so the flavor profile is right on.
But before you add the cheese, you’ll want to shred it by hand. Don’t use pre-shredded cheese because it will make a clumpy cheese sauce since it’s coated in anti-clumping agents.
Now that the cheese is ready, add in the smoked gouda, little by little and stir in a figure 8 until the cheese has melted.
Then add in half of the cheddar and continue to stir until it’s all melted.
Once the cheese has melted, stir in the hot sauce, the mustard and 1/2 tsp of salt. It should be seasoned properly at this point but feel free to add more salt if you think you need it.
Now it’s almost done! Turn your oven’s broiler on and place the mac and cheese into a greased baking dish.
Place the cheese topped mac and cheese under the broiler for 7 minutes or until it loos like the picture below!
How to Smoke it in a Smoker
Once the mac and cheese is all ready, it’s time to smoke it if you’d like!
Preheat your smoker to 225F using applewood.
Once it’s ready, simply place your mac and cheese in your smoker uncovered.
Close the lid of your smoker and let your mac and cheese smoke for 30-40 minutes.
Since we’re using smoked cheeses, you won’t want to have it in much longer than this since it’ll become too smokey.

Mac Users Give a Huge Sigh of Relief with WhiteSmoke’s Latest Announcement: New Writer – for Mac
With over 80,000,000 Mac users worldwide and countless email requests from both PC users and Mac subscribers, WhiteSmoke has developed a Mac Version of their revolutionary Writer, allowing Mac users to finally have their writing in check.
Each year more and more consumers get a Mac, and while the number of PC users is still substantially larger, Mac users have become a growing presence in our hi-tech world. WhiteSmoke Inc, developer of world-leading language solutions, has answered the call for a Mac version of their Writer and has announced that their Mac version is now available for purchase.
WhiteSmoke’s Writer is based on a unique and patented technology – a dynamic, self learning and constantly growing database. Their powerful engine simulates the human mind by reading millions of carefully selected texts, classifying them, storing them and then, based on cross references between the user’s text and relevant database entries, ultimately providing the user with precise choices and corrections.
CEO of WhiteSmoke, Hilla Ovil Brenner, says “Anyone who’s got a computer, Mac or PC, knows that the dominant method of communication is by far virtual. First impressions are no longer face to face and more and more people pay attention to writing mistakes because of that. With the rapidly growing number of Mac users, it’s only logical that we would have a Writer version available for Mac as well.”
So who are the Mac users? There’s no classifying them - Mac users are students, professors, teachers, business men and women, artists and more. With today’s technology, communication is no longer limited to snail mail and phone calls. Billions of emails are sent everyday worldwide and most of them are in English. From personal letters to business correspondences, people rely on e-mails as their top form of communication.
“I write allot in English”, says Finance and Risk Management Professor Luigi Panzone from Italy, “and WhiteSmoke was the only software I felt confident with. I’ve become dependant on them and couldn’t risk buying a computer I couldn’t run their Writer on. It’s about time I bought that Mac.”
And he’s not alone; people from all over the world have been sending WhiteSmoke emails, requesting a Writer that is Mac-friendly. Now, with WhiteSmoke Writer for Mac, Mac users will be able to check their grammar and spelling mistakes from any text application on their computer. All they have to do is type in their text and hit the assigned “check” key on their keyboard – WhiteSmoke Writer does the rest.

So, to sum it up – if you’ve got a Mac and you communicate via your computer in English – WhiteSmoke claims to have just the solution for you. Today, first impressions are through your texts so it’s only safe to say that one must make sure their writing is impressive to get ahead. Bottom line, Mac or no – it’s one of those things that just need to be on every computer.
