Smoky Mac 'n Cheese

Everyone loves mac 'n cheese, but this recipe amplifies new flavors that aren't found in your everyday mac 'n cheese recipe. Smoked cheese isn't sold shredded, so you'll have to buy it in a block. Block cheese is always a better choice anyway because it doesn't contain anti-caking agents.
