Well, the smoked corned beef brisket was amazing. A 5.5 lb piece disappeared in a flash. I was lucky to get a sandwich and a small chunk of leftover.

6.5 hour smoke at 240-250.





The meat was tender, not salty, juicy and really full of flavor. The sauce it cooked in, bourbon, brown sugar, molasses & beef broth made a super reduction and glaze for the finish.

Also on the menu were, clams casino, stuffed portobello mushrooms and smoked Mac and cheese. Our guests brought fresh steamed corn, salt potatoes, a really unique cold spaghetti salad and a tomato zucchini dish baked in a Dutch oven.

It was a really enjoyable party with horse shoes to follow.

In retrospect, I should have smoked 2 briskets.

You were a great help Bill. Your advice to  cut  the temps down and lengthen the cook was spot on. I'm old....but I listen ( when I can hear)  ;D

It was good mac and cheese, but I'll keep playing with it. I'll take any recipes offered.

Love this new cooking experience. The electric smoker is super easy.

Melted stick of butter
2 cups of milk
Add milk to butter and whisk over med heat
Add 16oz bag of shredded cheddar to mixture
Add fluor 2 tbsp
Put macaroni in glass dish
Pour mixture on top
Add parm cheese om top to brown
Bake 30 min at 375

I do pretty much the same but I start with butter, sauté some minced onion and minced jalapeños. Then  add flour to make a roux. Then I use 1% milk to thin to a cream sauce. Add salt, pepper and cheese. I'll thin more with milk as necessary to make the cheese sauce smooth.

We prefer cooked rotini for macaroni. Italian cheeses are more stringy. Cheddars, jack or Munster are smoother in the finished sauce. I'll stay away from the Italian varieties next time. Extra sharp cheddar would be perfect. The cast iron skillet worked well for the smoker. The bacon was good on top....bacon is good on anything.

There so many ways to make mac and cheese.
