Barbeque Macaroni and Cheese

Dutch Oven Mac and Cheese on the BBQ

A couple of weeks ago, it was hot here.  We not only live in northwestern Oregon, but also basically on the side of a hill over a river.  Hot is rare.  I should probably also add that hot is anything above 80.  When you’re done laughing at me, come back and I’ll tell you about…
