Hi. I'm John McLemore, president and CEO of Masterbuilt, and author of "DADGUM That's Good!" and !DADGUM That's Good, Too!" Today we're going to show you how to make a macaroni and cheese, not just any old macaroni and cheese, but Nancy's smoked mac and cheese. The reason we named this recipe Nancy's smoked mac and cheese is because we met a great lady along the way of developing all the recipes in my cookbook and she shared her recipe we wrote a story in it about her. Now it's a very simple recipe. We've got elbow macaroni that you want to boil to the packaging instructions. We've got some sharp cheddar cheese, four cups, we've got some Hellmans mayonnaise, a cup of sour cream, we've got some Velveta cheese. The olive oil is what goes into the macaroni while you're boiling those so that they don't stick. We've got one and a half teaspoons of onion powder and we've got a half a teaspoon of Cajun spices. Now the fun with this recipe is get the kids involved and have everybody help you make this recipe, all right. It's this simple. We're going to take the macaroni and transfer it into a mixing bowl, and we're going to take all of these ingredients starting with the sour cream, and blend all of these ingredients together. We're going to go in with your Hellmans mayonnaise, continue blending all of this together and your Velveta Cheese, that's four ounces of diced up Velveta cheese and blend that together. Now the next is we're going to take one and a half teaspoons of onion powder and one half teaspoon of Cajun spices and mix all of that together. Now you want to make sure that your macaroni is slightly warm to a little bit on the hot side coming out as you've strained it when you boiled it. What that allows is for that cheese to melt together and we're going to add all of that in. This is four cups of sharp cheddar cheese. Continue blending all of that together. Again, I recommend this is a kid's favorite recipe. Get the kids involved to help you blend and mix all of this together. We're going to transfer that mix to an aluminum disposable tray, spread that completely out. Again, we're smoking this in a disposable aluminum tray, easy clean up. You then take your crushed cheese crackers and spread all over the top of this recipe. Now we're going to take that and make a little room here, put this on the Masterbuilt smoker. What we've done is we've added one small handful of wood chips to the smoker. We're going to put that in then we're going to take this out and show you just how good looking that recipe is. It's cheesy, it's got just a nice hint of smoked flavor, and again, the kids not only love helping you make this recipe, but they love eating this recipe. I'm John McLemore, with Masterbuilt. Dadgum that's good.
