    birdman,
    Make up your favorite meatloaf recipe...any will do. Line a meat loaf pan with plastic wrap. Transfer the meatloaf mixture to the pan and smooth the top. Cover with more plastic wrap. Refrigerate for about 45 minutes.[p]Remove the plastic wrap from the top. Invert the chilled meatloaf onto a disposable aluminum tray that has about 2 inches clearance on all sides of the meatloaf. Remove the plastic wrap.[p]Preheat the Egg to 350 degrees. Bake the meatloaf for an hour to an hour and 15 minutes. Remove when a meat thermometer reads 160 degrees. Let rest 20 minutes before slicing.

    birdman,
    We do our meatloaf on one of those fish/veggie grids, with a drip pan underneath. I prefer to make my meatloaf into a thin rectangle shape, as opposed to the loaf shape Cooked it for about an hour at 350. If you want my meatloaf recipe let me know.

    birdman,
    I haven't tried this, so I can't vouch for it. It was sent by Joe Wells from the Food/Wine Discussion List and he swears by it and says it receives rave reviews from even those who don't usually like meatloaf. He may be lurking! I'm giving him credit...he doesn't YET own an Egg, hence the reference to the pit.[p]OLE MAN JIM'S MEATLOAF[p]
    5 lb ground chuck roast
    2-1/2 lb ground pork
    2 large onions, minced
    2 ea bell peppers, minced
    16 oz italian seasoned bread crumb (.99 at walmart)
    2 oz cajun bbq rub
    2 teaspoon thyme (I used Italian Seasoning)
    2 teaspoon sage
    6 large eggs, beaten
    1/4 cup danny's glaze*
    1/4 cup sesame oil
    1/3 cup danny's glaze for topping
    DANNY'S GLAZE
    1 cup brown sugar
    1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
    1/4 cup yellow prepared mustard[p]DANNY'S GLAZE
    Place brown sugar, vinegar and yellow mustard in a small pot and bring to a simmer (Do not boil.)[p]MEATLOAF
    Thoroughly hand mix first eleven (11) ingredients then form into 2 equal loaves. Place each loaf into a foil loaf pan and place both into a 275°F pit for 2-1/2 hours. Remove from pit, brush tops with Danny's glaze and return to pit for 15 more minutes.[p]Drain fat from loafs, slice and serve while still warm. Although it's good on sandwiches also.[p]For my taste, I would add a jalepeno also[p]Yield: 2 large loaves[p]--[p]"Chocolate chip cookies and duct tape make the world go round"[p]Joe Wells

    JimW,
    Just curious; I see some recipes say to cook to internal meat temp of 160 degrees and some to 170. I've always gone closer to 170. At 160 degrees, is there any pink in the middle?

    whatever recipie you use, try it in a v-rack and drip pan setup. last time i did one, i made a 3# loaf (ala mexican), rolled it up and covered in w/rub, put it in the v-rack w/drip pan. comes out like a tube for perfect round slices, and is not greasy, but nice and crusty all the way round.[p]makes good sammiches the next day too!

    WudEyeDoo,
    There is no pink. It's completely cooked through.

    birdman,
    Use whatever recipe you have for a meatloaf. I cook mine direct in a loaf pan for a little over an hour at 350*. Then, straight to sandwiches with a little bbq sauce.

    birdman,
    somewhere in the archives there's Cat's Meatloaf if you cna't find it e-mail me and I'll send you the recipt. It's killer. She made it at the 2000 Waldorf Eggfest and it may be just one of the best I've ever had!
