Smoked Meatloaf

Well I saw several posts the last few weeks and was bored on Sunday since the wife left.  I decided to give this meatloaf thing a try.  I used a recipe from this site that used 1 1/4 lbs of ground beef and 3/4 lbs. ground pork.  Picture #1 is the loaf going on the egg.  Picture #2 is after one hour on the egg.  Picture #3 is the finished product.  Picture #4 was after the first slice.

I cooked it a 250 degrees, PS legs up with drip pan on foil balls.  Cooked to 160 degrees internally.  Coolest thing I have ever seen.  Perfectly done in the middle with a smoke ring all around.  Took about 2 1/2 hours.

Will do this again.  Took it to the office on Monday with some hoagie rolls and Stubbs Sauce and they devoured it!

    For some reason, I'm having a tough time with meatloaf.

    Either it falls apart on the cutting board (minimal mixing of the beef during preparation) or super dense (.i.e., cement, mixing the beef until it turns into something suitable for sculpture).

    Can anyone help me with a recipe and MIXING INSTRUCTIONS that will help me produce a tender meatloaf suitable for sandwiches in the morning?

    Is that a bourbon and coke?  That's my main poison.  That and this forum as of recently.  The meatloaf looks delicious too!

    Haven't done meatloaf yet, but I will.  I'm just thawing out a center cut loin right now so I can brine and try the Canadian bacon recipe.  I have to be careful or I'll have a refrigerator full of leftovers and I hate to waste good food....

    That is definitely a bourbon and Diet Coke.  Having to watch the waistline with all this cooking!
