Meatloaf, Finally

I have finally bitten the bullet and decided to do a meatloaf. And I have gone all out with this one. I bought 7lbs of ground chuck and was planning on separating it and freezing half. Then I thought, I'm not going to light the smoker for a measily meatloaf. Needless to say, I have mixed 7lbs of meatloaf with 6 eggs, worchestershire, mustard, kethcup, onion, garlic, bread crumbs, kosher salt and black pepper. I don't like pork in mine, that's why I have omitted it. I have it chilling in the fridge molding around the bowl. I'm putting it on a round piece of aluminum foil onto the grate, no pan. Not sure if I'm cooking it tonight or tomorrow, but I'll post pic's as soon as I take them!

This pretty much my recipe as well. I do add the pork but that's a matter of personal taste. I like to add about a half cup of grated parmesan cheese to my 3 pound loaf.

So you are doing 1-7lb loaf or 2-3.5lb loaves?? One loaf would be big, no?

Sounds great Larry. Can't wait to see your pics.

Suggestion for ya, try dehydrated onion flakes instead of real onions. Real onions can make your ML crumbly but I think the taste is slightly better with real onion. It's a trade-off.

Greg, I made one loaf and just put it on the smoker. Advice will follow.

I also used fresh onion, vs. dehydrated on the first go around.

Pit is at 277, meats at 53 right now. I'll continue to post through the cook.

Pit's at 273*, meats at 113 about 1 hour 45 minutes into the cook.

Good lookin' loaf Larry, how did it taste? Anything you would do differently? What was the sauce you used? what kind of wood did you use? Inquiring minds want to know.

Sunday breakfast! [img=http://img260.echo.cx/img260/9168/img05090xo.th.jpg]

I made the sauce for the top, which consisted of ketchup, mustard and brown sugar. I pulled it off at 160* which seems to be perfect. The meatloaf was very moist and flavorful.

If anyone ever cares to mold the loaf in the pan, just make sure you spray the bowl with Pam or coat with oil to help create a release. I did use some oil, but had a difficult time getting the meat out of the bowl. Other than that, it's the best meatloaf I've ever made! I'm glad I finally tried it!

I think the best part of doing a meatloaf is the smoke ring
