  1. Prepare Pasta

    In a large pan, boil water and add one pound of pasta of your choice. Add 2 tsp bouillon. Cook noodles until al dente – a little firm to the bite – and set aside.

  2. Combine Ingredients

    In warm pan, combine stick of butter, 1/2 tsp. pepper, 1/2 tsp. onion powder, and 1/2 tsp. dry mustard.Add cubed cream cheese and half a block of Velveeta. Place on low heat until melted. Add one cup of half and half and almost all of the cheese, setting aside a little for top. In a separate bowl, beat eggs, one cup of half and half, ½ tsp. dry mustard, ½ tsp. onion powder, ½ tsp. black pepper, and 1 tsp. bouillon. Stir mixture with cheese mixture until creamy, adding noodles. Spread into lightly greased cooking pan and top with extra cheese and breadcrumbs.

  3. Get your smoke on!

    Preheat your smoker (or oven) to 400. If using a smoker, place the mac and cheese inside once you see smoke. Cook for 30 minutes and cool 10-15 minutes before serving
