Getting the Egg up to temp and letting it stabilize for a bit then getting ready to throw on some MEATLOAF!!!! Have been anxious to try this and will post pics later when I am able. Using 2 1/2 lbs ground chuck seasoned with carrot, onion, bbq sauce, cracker crumb, minced garlic, s&p and a few other throw ins.
:D

Using cherry chips for smoke and gonna have potatoes for a side. Can't wait!

    Man that sounds good. Meatloaf is outstanding on the egg. The only thing better is the next day having the sandwhiches.

    That looks great.  At what temperature is it done?

    when I make a meatloaf I sauté up the carrots onions and celery, softens them all up nicely. I need to do one of these!

    This was real simple. I did mine indirect with a drip pan. 375-400 dome till 155 internal. Made my normal meatloaf, then put it in the fridge for about an hour to make sure it held form well. Got Egg up to temp then tossed in some cherry for smoke and put in the loaf. About 30 minutes before it was done I basted with BBQ sauce and let finish cooking. Pulled when it hit 155. Could have prob waited till 160-165 but I was hungry!! Took hour and a half total. Great eats!!

    Nightwing, so the normal grate didn't give you any problems?  I've always used my CI grate, flat-side up, for a little extra support.

    Nope none whatsoever. It barely had a little curvy indentation in the
    bottom of the loaf but otherwise it just looked like a burger on bottom.
    It was kind of nice. You know how some people fight for the ends of the
    meatloaf, of the crust around edges of a baked lasagna? That's kind of
    what this was like and it covered the whole bottom of the loaf. Great
    stuff. I think putting it in the fridge for about an hour helped too.
    Made the ML firm up some.
