Gourmet Mac & Cheese on the Grill!

Did you know gourmet macaroni and cheese can be made on the grill?

Yes you read that right,we are going to show you how to make everyone's favorite pasta on the grill! Making gourmet mac & cheese on the grill is pretty similar to making it in your kitchen. You will still need a large pot, saucepan, whisk, and measuring cups and spoons. As well as all of the standard ingredients as listed below.


  • 1 pound macaroni noodles
  • 6 cups of your favorite shredded cheeses
  • A stick of butter
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • Milk
  • Salt 
  • Ground Black Pepper
  • Garlic Powder
  • Breadcrumbs


The following part can be done on either the stove or the grill.  As well as a side burner if your BBQ has one. If done on the grill preheat the grill to 350 degrees fahrenheit.

Once the grill is preheated fill your pot with water and bring it to a boil.  Once boiling your macaroni noodles in the pot and cook until they are "Al Dente". Once cooked to this consistency drain the pot and set the noodles to the side for the time being. 

Set the grill to medium burn. Then using a large sauce pan melt 1 whole stick of butter.  Once melted whisk in your flour to thicken then add 2 cups of milk. Now begin adding your cheese 1 cup at a time being sure to thoroughly whisk each in before the next. If the sauce becomes to thick add more milk. 

Once all cheeses are blended together mix in the noodles as well as a 1/2 a teaspoon of salt and 1/2 teaspoon of black paper. Once everything is thoroughly mixed transfer your mac and cheese to a cast iron casserole dish.  Sprinkle the top with breadcrumbs and garlic powder, then place on the grill (lid closed) for 12 minutes.  Check half way through to make sure it does not burn. Once done take it off the grill and let it stand for a few minutes before serving.

To add some extra flavor to your macaroni and cheese mix in some grilled peppers, bacon and/or chicken!
