Doing a meatloaf experiment

Gonna try something different. Got a pound of pork, chicken, and turkey. What combination of the three should I make a 2 lb meatloaf out of?
I raise my kids, cook and golf.  When work gets in the way I'm pissed, I'm pissed off 48 weeks a year.
Inbetween Iowa and Colorado, not close to anything remotely entertaining outside of football season.

    I would go for 2 parts pork and one each of chicken and turkey. 1 lb pork, 1/2lb each of the others.

    That was the way I was leaning, Thanks for the input Richard. Think I'll use the remaining pound of turkey/chicken and make meatballs for spaghetti next week.

    Here is one I like, just mix the chicken and turkey and use sausage.

    Turkey, Sausage, Meatballs, Ground, Richard Fl




    INGREDIENTS:
    3 1/2 Lbs Turkey, Ground
    2 Lbs Sausage, Hot, Tennessee Pride
    2 Large Onion, Chopped Small
    4 Whole Eggs
    1 Cup Bacon Bits
    2 Cans Water Chestnuts, Chopped coarse.
    2 Cup Favorite BBQ Sauce
    ********
    2 Pkg Lipton Onion Mix
    "OR"
    2 Pkg Knoor;s French Onion Soup Mix
    *******
    2-3 Tbs Dijon Mustard
    2 Cup Grated Parmesan Cheese
    2-3 Cups Italian Bread Crumbs To Bind
    2-3 Tbs Black Pepper
    2-3 Tbs Garlic Powder
    tsp Basil, Dried
    Favorite BBQ Rub, I used Dizzy Pig Raging River




    Procedure:
    1 Mix all ingredients except turkey, sausage and bread crumbs. Then mix in turkey and sausage. Slowly add in the bread crumbs, careful not to add so many that the meatballs will be dried out. Make meatballs about 1-1 1/2 inches in diameter. Sprinkle with your favorite BBQ rub.
    BGE:
    1 Set up BGE for indirect cook at 350°F and add some smoke of choice. I used apple. Place meatballs on rack with a smaller grid pizza rack to keep the meat from falling into fire. Cook about 45-60 minutes. Can be frozen.
    2 Will also make great burgers & meatloaf. If meat loaf pull at 150°F.


    Yield: 135
