Queso On The Grill Recipe

Michael from Everyday BBQ created this ground-breaking Smoked Queso recipe using our Slow N Sear® Kettle Grill.

The recipe in this video is what I would consider dialed in to what most people will highly enjoy with the correct amount of flavors from the ingredients as well as smoke flavor from the cooker. Please keep in mind that this recipe in general is quite flexible and allows for individual creativity and enjoyment. I have done this recipe many times over the last year since it’s become popular. I have experimented with different ingredients, amounts, and cooking techniques.
