It doesn’t get much hotter than the EGG cookin’ in July! Make sure to keep yourself hydrated with a bit of whatever you’re using for the Beer Can Chicken. Ice Cream Sandwiches are also a great way to stay cool. Looking for some great ideas for a summer cook out? Try out a Pimento Cheeseburger or Dr. BBQ’s Spare Rib Surprise. Just don’t be surprised if your neighbors stop by for a quick bite when they smell what you’re cooking!

Cold Night Comfort Meatloaf

It's about 35 here in Alabama, so I figured a hearty meatloaf would be good. Just your basic meatloaf, meat, bread binder, egg, onion, bell pepper, and DD Cowlick. Put it on at 300, although I may bump that up to 350. I chose to go with the jack Daniels Barrel Blocks for a little smoke. I only put one on because I know Oak can be overpowering. I hope I didn't make a mistake with that wood choice, but I just got them today and had to give it a go. I have used the chips before, but these are blocks cut from the barrels. You can even see the curvature of the barrel in them, and the burnt side of the barrel will rub off on your hands. IMO, much better than the chips. We'll see how it turns out.

    Not really sure why 2 pics were sideways, and one wasn't. Oh we'll.

  • I want to know how the meat loaf turns out with the JD bricks.  I bet it will be good as long  as its not overpowering.

    I will be sure to let you know. Hopefully with just the one, it will not overpower.

    Done, and in my belly! The oak wood was very good, but it was just enough with one chunk. Had a nice smoke ring. Any more would've been too much. Served it up with some skin on garlic mashed taters and sautéed asparagus.

    Looks great! 

    The pictures are fine when you click on them so I wouldn't worry about it. I think either the forum or photo bucket recently made some changes because some of my pictures do that and never have before. I still need to get a meatloaf on the egg..

    I thought it was just right.  Any more would've been pushing it.
