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.

16 oz 80% lean ground beef   
1/2 cup seasoned breadcrumbs   
1/4 tsp black pepper   
1/2 tsp salt   
1 Tbsp dry mustard   
1 egg
2 slices bacon   
Lipton onion soup mix

    Looks great. Living here in TN, hickory is abundant but I'm trying new woods. I like apple and maple. Need to try some cherry.
