my eggsistant and daughter, sydney makes great meatloaf. .. so last night she did it on the egg. . . her recipe is simple but good. .. burger, onion, italian bread crumbs, eggs. . .thats it . . .i tried to get her to put in some cowlick or witchy red, but she said 'nope, this is my recipe, leave me alone. .. . did it at 350 indirect w/ hickory chunks for about 1 hour and 20 minutes (it started a little low and worked up to 350, but that gave it some nice smoke). . ..she did it all from loading the firebox, to getting it going with mapp torch to maintaining vents and temps. .. .it was most excellent. ..

    Way to go Sydney!! My stomach is growling.[p]Sometimes good things happen when you stand up and don't listen to Dad![p]Everything looks fabulous.....except for the peas. Yuch.

  • Nature Boy,

    mad max beyond eggdome,
    My nephew Kenny, and the twins will most likely be at New Holland. Kenny is gonna enter the kids Q. I will make sure Woo and I are on our best behavior.[p]Albuquerque was awesome, thanks. Will try and get a couple pix up later. The show was pretty amazing. Hard to believe all the stuff they do with peppers. Fun all the way around, and the learning experience was well worth the trip. [p]It didn't take but a few hours driving around New Mexico to see why it is the "Land of Enchantment".

  • mad max beyond eggdome,
    You mentioned she "did it at 350 indirect w/ hickory chunks for about 1 hour and 20 minutes (it started a little low and worked up to 350, but that gave it some nice smoke). . ..[p]Any idea what the INTERNAL TEMP was, or is this classified info?[p]FYI, my seven year old is learning to cook. If you ask here about her secret recipe she beckons you real close, then whispers 'can you keep a secret?' which always gets a 'yes' to which she responds 'I can too'.[p]Sassy :-)[p]

  • peterN,
    pulled it when it was at about 150 internal. . .just had a hint of pink in the center(unlike our steaks, which we always eat medium rare, we like our meatloaf more like medium well). .. because we were running a little late, the loafs (which weighed about 1 3/4 pounds each) went on when dome temps were about 250, and it took about another 10 minutes to stabilize at the 350. .. .normally, we probably would have gotten a good steady 350, then had them on for about 1 hour.. . . the time at the lower temps got a nice smokey infusion though, so it worked out fine. . .
    btw, it was indirect over a plate setter covered in aluminum foil. ..[p]yep, daughters can be sassy can't they. .. ;-)

    mad max beyond eggdome,
    Proud you should be. We need people like her to keep an open mind to recipes. How boring it would be if we always did the same thing.
    Thanks for the recipe Sydney. I can even eat them peas.

    mad max beyond eggdome,
    I love meatloaf on the Egg. I usually do mine direct in a meatloaf pan for about the same time. Then, straight to sandwiches with some good bbq sauce!

    Nature Boy,[p]So THAT's the send button...[p]Hey Chris, welcome back![p]To quote a Phamous Phrench Philosoper (whose name temporarily escapes me) "If God did not create peas, it would be necessary for Man to invent them".[p]Lookin' good Sydney![p]Ken
  • Nature BoyNature Boy Posts: 8,521
    Thanks Ken
    But I say "If God did not create peas, everyone would be eating fresh crunchy asparagus.....and that would be just fine with me."

    <p />mad max beyond eggdome,[p]Yumm...I love them meatloafs..cept the one momma made with that bandaid in it..poor momma..she spent hours lookin for that thing..when all she had to do was just wait for grampa to start eatin. I don't know what's wrong with grampa..youd think he woulda been happy to help momma find that gnarly ol thing..but he sure didn't look it. [p]This here is a meatloaf I did last year sometime..I remember postin the recipe for it at one had no bandaid in it's I can't say it was as good as mommas..but I know grampa didn't stop eatin this one though..till it was all gone...[p]
    Ahh..the life of a Stump...[p]StumpBaby
