Meatloaf on WSM ?

I’m trying to do meatloaf on the WSM and my dome temp is at 258* I was hopping to get into the 275*-300* rage but so far no luck. The 3 bottom vent’s are ½ way open and the top is open all the way. Do I need to open the vent’s some more or should I have added more charcoal to the ring. I started by using the MM with about 16 lit coals. Anyone have any thoughts?

If you wanna cook at a higher temp open all the bottom vents and take the door off till you're close to your target temp. Then replace the door and shut the vents 50%. I cook my ML in the 240-260 range though. CAREFUL of how much wood you use, you can over smoke a meatloaf very easily!

Also, If you're cooking with water in the pan, that will hold the temps down. What time's dinner?? =P~

Hey Dave here's some pic's of one (7lber) I did a while back. This one was actually done closer to the 300* range.

dog, Larrys way will work. Next time your trying to get to the higher temps, start off with more lit coals on initial start up, maybe 25 - 30.

Well if you know in the beginning of the cook you what high temps just use a full lit chimney.

Thanks for the help guys. I was using water. This was only my second cook using the WSM I’m trying to learn the ins and outs of it. But it is almost too easy it is like someone else said “magic“ once I had it dialed in to where I wanted it, it just stayed there. Here is a pic of the loaf on the WSM they have to rest before I can cut into them, I’ll try to post more pics later or tomorrow. My temp near the top grate was 265* and the mealoaf was done at 170* in about 2.5hrs.

Here‘s a pic of the one I stuffed with roasted red peppers, salami, green onions and cheeses. I also used some spaghetti sauce as a binder instead of ketchup.
