Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
It feels as though we’ve waited forever for college football to start, and finally the wait is over! Check out our tailgating page for recipes that are sure to become fan favorites. As an added bonus, the day before Labor Day is National Bacon Day and we don’t know about you, but we like putting bacon on anything and everything, so we’ll definitely be celebrating that. It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

Basic Meatloaf

I've only had the egg a few months, so decided to join in and try my wife's meatloaf on the egg.  She mixed a double batch of it, and we split it into four small loaves to try to speed up the cook and maybe grab some more smoke than one big loaf would have.  It came out pretty well, and is fairly dense, so will probably be good for sandwiches in a day or two.  I used Ozark Oak and a few chunks of hickory.  I've got to start trying something besides hickory, but it seems like every other tree around here is hickory, so it's traditional I suppose.  Maybe I'll start with some fruitwood like apple.

With 375 degrees at the grate, it took just under an hour to hit 160 internal.
