Greetings friends!

Brought home two chains from tenderloins trimmed at work and decided to grind 'em up and give my best shot at smoking them. Added in some stuff and rubbed the outside with brisket rub and then Stubbs BBQ sauce. One smaller than the other - my dinner companion goes more well done than me.

Grinding up!!

V-rack over a seasoned water bath indirect PS around 300*+ grate.

New rain hat! A running joke here is it ALWAYS RAINS when I do the Egg. That's a 7" chimney topper.

All done at 165* in the big boy. off and a ten minute rest.

My friend says this pic looked better:

And the final presentation.



Quick seared asparagus. Mashed chipotle roared garlic red potatoes. Roasted garlic buttered bread. And caramelized apple ginger rice pudding (off camera).

image


They were both well done. Which isn't a big deal. Only - oddly, the big loaf was crumbly while the little one was sliced perfectly. Weird. Neither were close to dry. Should make great sandwiches. Check out that smoke ring!!

Ok catch you later. Thanks for looking!

    When in doubt add more pepper.

  • Wow. Food porn at it's best! I probably would not have thought about trying this, but it is near the top of my list. Can you post a recipe? Or is the "some stuff" you put in a secret? What was the appox cooking time?

    I think it is illegal in Texas to cook meatloaf without onions. That looks good.

    Ah crap. Add a chopped Vidalia in there lol.

    Also failed to mention this was over mesquite smoke.

    I don't do recipes or measurements. I believe in fresh ingredients and grinding my own spices. And I love comfort food.

  • I have a problem. I am leaving on an extended work trip on Sunday. I have time to finish the cart for my egg. Or to make a meatloaf like this. But not both. Which should I do?

  • MMM meatloaf ... Bookmarked 

    FYI... If you get the 6 inch chimney topper instead of the 7 inch it fits perfect and it will not fall of when you open the egg.

    Hmm... I tried the 6" and couldn't make it fit with the DFMT in place.

    I was just thinking its about time for meatloaf. That's on the menu for Saturday now! Thanks for sharing.

    Super cool everyone's getting on the meatloaf train!

    I must not have pushed the rain cap down firmly enough. Does it turn your DFMT into a SFMT?

    It was hilarious how Meatloaf had man-boobs in Fight Club.
