    Some pictures of the before and after. I'm new to smoking. This being my third attempt, but I didn't like it that much. I think it had a bit to much Hickory for my liking. But two tins down in two days from co-workers and wife!

    The prep...


    Into the smoker...


    And the final product....


    And thought I would throw my second attempt at smoking....

    Off to a good start! What recipe did you use for the smoked mac&cheese? I tried making it with hickory once and it was too strong for my liking. Next time I'll try pecan or apple.

    Sorry for the wait. Been a bit busy....elbow mac.

    I basically used the same recipe in th is video

    I then adjusted it because I used 32 oz and a 16 oz box of elbows. I'd watch the Hickory myself as it was a bit strong. I will try apple next time.
