Classic crispy mac 'n' cheese

This one was concocted by SWMBO, and it was great. Inspired by some of the great mac 'n' cheese that we had in the US back in June. Made with smoked Red Leicester, mature cheddar and buffalo mozzarella. Recipe in the link below:
Served with some steak and broccoli:


Smoking the cheese a couple of weeks earlier:

Cheese grated and making the roux:


Another shot with more steak in view (cheese is overexposed on the right):

Thanks for looking!

    Thats some fine looking M&C for sure.  

    Location- Just "this side" of Biloxi, Ms.

    Status- Standing by.

    Arsenal-Just a small wore out and broken down Weber kettle. No other means to cook at all.

    Virtus Junxit Mors Non Separabit

    The greatest barrier against all wisdom, the stronghold against knowledge itself, is the single thought, in ones mind, that they already have it all figured out. 

    Just a man with a Muhle.

    Too much talent right there.  Congrats on the entire meal and especially the M&C.  Magazine quality pics as well.

    Thanks folks! 

    @The_Stache I like that idea, will try it next time. 

    @JethroVA if you didn’t see it already, I posted a basic photography guide (link below). The M&C pics were taken with an iPhone and post-processed using a free software package.

    Thanks. I don't recall seeing Red Leicester in the USA, it's got a tangy taste with a slight hint of hazelnut. There are a few online places that sell if, easy to find through the magic trickery of Google.

    I was very lucky that we had a dip in temperature one weekend, which meant I could smoke the cheeses without them melting. :)
