2nd round of fatties plus mac & cheese

Discussion in 'Fatties' started by ameskimo1, Sep 22, 2013.

  1. Hello everyone! Second round of fatties, these are a combination of ground turkey and Bob Evans Italian Sausage (sale today, helps support my 'smoking' habit) with pizza sauce, cheese, red/green bell peppers, and red onions.

    Living on the edge a little and attempting homemade smoked mac & cheese as well.


    I maybe filled the fatties a little too full.....no.


      That mac & cheese was so good it almost didn't make it to the smoker. Well a few bites didn't anyway. :)


    And a some corn on the cob.


    Now that's just as beautiful as a newborn baby, right??

    Holy smokes! The fatties look remarkable. I see you foiled the top of the Mac n cheese (to limit the smoke?) how did that work out? :grilling_smilie:
     
  5. Thanks Ham, the mac & cheese turned out great. I did foil it and then cut several 'vents' for the smoke to enter; this was a shallow pan and I didn't want to over smoke it and was concerned about the top drying out. Next time I will use more of a breadloaf syle pan - deeper with less surface area - and cover the same way. 
     
  6. Looks great! I've got two fatties on right now and was going to smoke some Mac n cheese as well. Never did get to making the Mac so I'll just have to eat more fattie!

    Smoked Mac and cheese... Brilliant! How much smoky flavor did it absorb? Were you happy with the size of the foil vents?

  13. I did a mac-n-cheese japaleno stuffed fattie this past weekend with some sausage.  Just thought I would share some Q view!



     
  14. How long and at what temp are you cooking the mac & cheese?  I have never covered mine - I like the smoke flavor and the top to be crispy with the insides nice and creamy.  I've always gotten good results without covering.
     
  15. Thanks everyone!

    Jeffed - Picked up a nice smoke flavor, not to light or deep but I'll be more careful placing the vents. Some parts were a deeper smoke than others, didn't seem to be a problem as it was gone in no time.

    Tuscan - it was a warm afternoon so the smoker ran 230-250 and was in for about 2 1/2 hrs.

    Dirt - thanks for the recipe, I was actually wanting to do a no boil as I think it will get a deeper flavor,

    Vince - the jalopeno and mac/cheese smoothie looks awesome, that will be on my list of things to try as well!
