Smoked Meatloaf (pic heavy)

Decided it was time to take a crack at Smoked Meatloaf. I found Alton Brown's recipe for "Good Eats Meatloaf" and went with that one:

I did it a little different and did not add the red bell peppers, and I also used a Beef / Pork mixture for the meat.

Started it off by grinding up some Butter Garlic Croutons in the Food Processor along with Cayenne Pepper, Black Pepper, Chili Powder and Thyme.



Then the Veggies...



Like I said earlier, I used this for the meat...


Got the Meatloaf to shape, and threw it on the Egg at 325 deg f. Used Alder Wood for smoke...



I let that go for awhile to soak up some smoke, before adding the Glaze.


The Glaze consisted of Ketchup, Cumin, Hot Sauce, Worchestershire and Honey.


Let that go until the internal temperature registered 160 deg f.



While I was taking the Meatloaf off the Egg, my wife was checkin' out my booty... B) She managed to snap a shot of me from behind, so you guys could see me sporting my GA Mountain Eggfest T-shirt. ;)


Here is dinner...check out the smoke ring....


Served with some Broccoli Salad and Diced Potatoes and Onions...


This was one tasty recipe! Can't wait to have a leftover sandwich for lunch tomorrow. :)

    Oh yeah, the best thing about meatloaf is the meatloaf sandwich the next day. That is one of my favorite sandwiches.

    I haven't seen that Alton Brown episode but the idea of using croutons instead of plain bread is genius. Then again, that's AB, right?

    Excellent dinner, my friend!

    Thanx a lot, y'all! Paula Deen's "BBQ Meatloaf" is pretty good as well. Never tried it on the grill, but it used to be my go-to meatloaf. Think I'll have to try it on the egg next time for "scientifical" purposes... ;)

    That looks great!! I love meatloaf. I have my mothers recipe do I use the same temp as what it calls for in regular oven? I would think so, but I am new to the Egg and just want to verify what I think.
