This Smoked BBQ Pulled Pork Mac And Cheese Recipe is perfect for leftover pulled pork!! Now, this is a dream meal, I personally at it as a meal, not just a side dish. (I have included affiliate links to products I love. As an Amazon Associate, I earn from qualifying purchases.)
I made this on my Pit Boss Pro 1100, cooking low and slow, my favorite way to cook! I picked up my Pitboss at Lowes, but Walmart and Amazon carry other Pit Boss options or the Pitboss website itself. Personally, I love the cost of them vs other pellet grills, plus it hasn’t disappointed me yet.
Smoked BBQ Pulled Pork Mac And Cheese Ingredients:
- 1 1/2 Cup Shredded BBQ Pulled Pork
- 1 16oz Package Of Pasta
- 1/4 Cup Butter
- 1/4 Cup Flour
- 3 Cups 2% Milk
- 8 Oz Cream Cheese Cubed
- 1 Tsp Salt
- 1/2 Tsp Pepper
- 1 Lb Sharp Cheddar Cheese
- 1 Lb Mexican Three Cheese
- 6 Oz Parmesan Cheese
- 6 Oz Mozzarella Cheese
How To Make Smoked BBQ Pulled Pork Mac And Cheese:
Shred your leftover smoked pork and cover in bbq sauce.
Start a pot boiling with water and prepare the box of pasta according to the box. (I used elbow macaroni but you can use any pasta of your choice.)
Cube your cream cheese and shred your cheese as well.
Drain the pasta when it is done cooking, and leave the pasta in the strainer so you can reuse the pot.
In the pot melt your butter and then whisk your four into the melted butter. (I used a silicone whisk for this part)
Allow the flour and butter to cook until it is a thick mixture, mine happened quickly so don’t leave it unattended long.
Next, whisk in the milk and bring the mixture to a boil.
Be sure to allow the milk mixture to cook for about 5 more minutes until it is thick.
Carefully drop in the cubed cream cheese and stir in the salt and pepper. Stir until cream cheese is melted into the milk mixture.
In a large bowl combine half of the shredded cheeses together.
Slowly mix the cream sauce into the shredded cheese mixture.
Next, add the cooked pasta into the cheese sauce mixture, and also mix in the BBQ Pulled Pork.
Spray an aluminum 9 X 13 pan with a nonstick spray. Now I used 9×13 aluminum pans that are disposable to make this. If you use a baking pan the smoker will stain this, but you could also make this in cast iron as well.
Spread the cheesy pasta into the sprayed pan.
In another bowl mix together the remaining shredded cheese and spread the cheeses out onto the top of the pasta.
Set your smoker on the smoke setting and smoke for about 20 minutes.
Turn the temperature up to 225 and smoke for another hour until bubbly.
Serve and enjoy!
