Step by step instructions

1. Ready the smoker and set it up to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Once you have done that, allow it to stabilize for approximately 15 to 20 minutes.

2. Now prepare the elbow macaroni by strictly following the instructions as written in the package. Set aside once you are done.

3. Grate the extra sharp cheddar cheese (just a pound) as well as the Monterey Jack cheese (about ½ pound) and set aside.

4. Cook the enter-cut thin bacon until it becomes crispy. Once you have done that, place the bacon on a baking sheet and place it in a 400 degrees Fahrenheit oven for nothing less than 10 to 15 minutes.

Note that the bacon should not exceed or be below 10 to 15 minutes since you want it to be crispy and not limp.

5. After 10 or maximum of 15 minutes, remove bacon from baking sheet and allow it to drain on a paper towel. Once you have done that, chop bacon finely with a food processor and set aside.

6. Heat 2 tablespoons of butter as well as 2 tablespoons all purpose flour in a sauce pan over medium heat. Cook until the roux starts to small nutty. Once that has been achieved, add ½ cup of heavy cream and stir until sauce thickens.

8. Now add grated cheese to sauce little by little, stirring until the cheese is blended and sauce is smooth and creamy.

9. Add 1 tablespoon hot sauce together with 2 tablespoons all-purpose seasoning.

10. Mix together the pasta, as well as the sauce, a cup of sour cream and a cup of mayonnaise and pour into a smoker-safe dish. If recommend you use a 13-inch cast iron skillet (if possible) and make sure it has been well seasoned or sprayed with nonstick cooking sray (to taste).

11. Add the ½ cup panko breadcrumbs together with the chopped bacon. Mix properly.

12. Top mac and cheese with panko and bacon mixture. To smoke the mac and cheese, all you need to do is to place the skillet in the 350 degrees Fahrenheit smoker for just an hour, or better still, until mac and cheese becomes hot and bubbly.

13. If you wish to have a darker crust for mac and cheese, all you need to do is to place skillet in oven, under the broiler, just about 4 inches from the heat, until the top is golden and bubbling. This should only take about 3 to 4 minutes.
