Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
We hope everyone enjoyed their Fourth of July weekend and is excited for more warm weather grilling! This week, we’ll be making these two burgers: Stuffed Portobello Mushroom and Caribbean Chicken, and also eating lots of these Ice Cream Sandwiches in honor of National Ice Cream Month! It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

Meatloaf

I cooked my first meatloaf yesterday on a lbge.  I put plastic wrap in a glass loaf pan and then put the meatloaf in it.  I then shaped it and put it in the refrigerator for 45min to 1 hour.  I had the egg with the indirect pieces preheated.  I fliped it out of the loaf pan onto a cast iron grid with the flat side up.  I cooked it for about an hour at 360 degrees indirect.  The internal temperature was approximately 157 to 161 degrees (thermapen) in different places.  The meat on the bottom that protruded in the spaces on the grid still looked a little light red.  By the way,  I didn't notice it until I had already eaten some.  The inside looked good.  Was it not done?  Should I have cooked it longer?  Also the onions and bell peppers in it was not as tender as the are when I have cooked it in the oven at 350.  I would appreciate your thoughts and any suggestions on this.  How do you cook your meatloafs, in or out of a pan, direct or indirect, and etc. I do want to try this again.  Thanks for any comments.
