Old Fashion Meatloaf...in the Big Easy?

Can it be done?
Meatloaf cooks at a pretty high temp somewhere around 350 so 450 should be better...I hope. If this works it will be the first time someone has trid this that I know of.

To make it work the Meatloaf texture must be tight and hold together well so I chose a recipe with some good binders like eggs and bread crumbs. My plan is to use my toaster rack to hold it in place. I may use a piece of bacon or two on that rack to keep meat from sagging through.

Pit Pirate Big Easy Meat Loaf Trial

2 beaten eggs
1/2 cup milk
2/3 cups bread crumbs
1/4 cup chopped onion
1 tablespoon parsley
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon pepper
1/2 teaspoon sage
1.5 pound 80/20 Ground beast

In a bowl mix all but meat. When well blended add to meat and work in VERY throughly.

Make a loaf and drop in aluminum foiled loaf pan, cover and refrigerate to set crumbs and moisture for better holding together.

I'll let it set a coupld hours and cook it later.

Taking the Big Easy down to a local bar and cook on the crub for some Happy Hour chicken for friends...and drunks. lol Everyone is yer friend when you have food.

Stay Tuned!

So I got my Stainless Steel racks from my friend and after washing and cooking them off I re washed them and put on the meatloaf.

Next I stuck in my probe and set about 4" from bottom.

Later on I added another rack and some oiled and salt and peppered Potatoes. Be carefull around the hot basket folks and any racks you create. Think twice and move once.

Meatloaf had a nice crust and cooked in about 40 miutes or to 165 degrees Internal Temp. The Potatoes were done in about 25 minutes or to about 220 degrees Internal Temp. Crunchy skin and tender meat. Bravo!

So the answer is yes you can cook a Meatloaf on the Big Easy. I would use less bread crumbs and not be as worried about the meat falling through now that I have these racks to start with.

So far I see the need for some assortment of safe to use racks and holders but we'll all just have to cook to see what they can make for use.

Enjoy folks

Looks pretty durn good to me! The thing I hate most about meatloaf is that goo (blood/fat) that builds up in the bottom of the casserole dish/pan once it's cooked. Looks like you got a good system on the go.
