PREPARATION

Steps

1


When ready to cook, start your Z Grill according to grill instructions. Set the temperature to 350 degrees F and preheat, lid closed (10-15 minutes).

2


Heat butter in a medium stock pot over medium-high heat. Add onion and saute for 5 minutes or until translucent and tender. Add garlic and saute 30 seconds more. Add flour and stir well with a wooden spoon.


3


Cook roux for 1 minute until it smells slightly nutty. While whisking, stream in milk and cream and continue to whisk until flour clumps are worked out.

4


Wrap herbs and black peppercorn in cheese cloth and tie up with twine. Drop into cream mixture and simmer 15-20 minutes until liquid thickens. Remove cheese cloth with herbs and discard.


5


Remove from heat, whisk in gruyere until melted through and season with salt. Set aside until noodles are ready.


6


Bring a large salted pot of water to a boil. Add noodles and cook 6-8 minutes until al dente. Drain and rinse pasta. Add to cheese sauce and stir to coat. Pour mixture into a large cast iron pan.


7


In a small bowl combine panko, parmesan cheese, melted butter, paprika and stir well. Sprinkle mixture over mac and cheese then top with shredded jerky “dust”.


8


Place cast iron pan directly on the grill grate and bake 15-20 minutes until cheese sauce is bubbling and top is lightly browned. Remove from the grill and serve. Enjoy!
