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.

    Good luck! Looks pretty good so far...
  • 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.
  • That would be great.  I bet it will be good.

    Man, y'all have me craving smoked meatloaf.  Looks great!

    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.

    And again, the sideways pics!
  • Looks great! I found if I edit the picture on my iPad/iPhone, rotate it once, then rotate back, it will upload correctly!
    HOTTY TODDY!

    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..

  • Man that looks good, how was the smoke, to much or just right?

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