Brisket Mac and Cheese

This is a really cool example of how I turned something good into something great. There is BBQ joint right up the road from the house that serves a pretty good moist brisket (AKA “loose cut”).

Making your own brisket can take more time than you’re willing to spend so I would suggest making a pit stop by your favorite local BBQ joint. All brisket is not great brisket, but luckily for this dish, the mac and cheese is what needs to shine. So really any good smoky brisket will do. 🙂

The cheese mixture is the most important part of this recipe and is definitely the winning element. I use several types of cheese that result in the ideal creaminess and sharpness.
