Anybody ever smoke Mac and Cheese? Make it however you like it and put it in the smoker. It's like baking it in the oven but smokes the surface. Good stuff.

I smoke poultry hot and fast.

A 13lb bird at ~350*F is done in about 3-4 hours. With not much fat/collagen to break down, I don't see the point to cook a bird low and slow.

Smoked Mac and Cheese turned out awesome. Everyone liked. I used creamy harvarti instead of gouda:

Four-Cheese Smoked Mac n Cheese

Ingredients:
1 (16 ounce) package elbow macaroni
1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup all purpose flour
3 cups milk
1 (8 ounces) cream cheese, cut into large chunks
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
2 cups extra sharp Cheddar cheese, shredded
2 cups Gouda cheese shredded
1 cup Parmesan cheese, shredded
Directions
1. Load the wood tray with one small handful of wood chips and preheat the smoker to 225 F.
2. Cook pasta according to package instructions. In a medium saucepan, melt butter, and whisk flour into the butter. Cook over medium heat for 2 minutes, until sauce is bubbly and thick. Whisk in milk and bring to a boil. Cook 5 minutes until thickened. Stir in cream cheese until mixture is smooth. Add salt and pepper.
3. In a large bowl, combine 1 cup Cheddar, 1 cup Gouda cheese, Parmesan cheese, pasta, and cream sauce. Spoon mixture into an 11 by 9 -inch aluminum roasting pan coated with nonstick cooking spray. Sprinkle top with remaining Cheddar cheese and Gouda cheese.
4. Place in smoker and cook 1 hour at 225 F, until brown, bubbly and delicious.

I do it moreso cause the skin actually crisps up with higher temps instead of rubber bands. They sell those at staples, not in my back yard.

True if you cook a yardbird long enough low and slow it will get there and be done. Meh. Hot n fast or indirect grilling whatever somebody defines it as... Still uses smoke if you want it to.

I'm with you on bird, hot and fast is the way to go. Wild bird (duck, and dove) seem to respond the best to this method.
