Saturday Night Meatloaf

Did my first meatloaf. I was compelled by the smoke ring Masked Marvel crowed about on Sept 28. I went simple. Three pounds of ground beef in two foil tins for 1 hour followed by 1.5 hours out of the tins until 155 degrees. Indirect at 275. Put some Stubb's Original on for the last hour.

I was pleasantly surprised to find i got a smoke ring as well. The appearance and ring is great but I'm not completely satisfied with the flavor. The GB may have been too lean. Went with 85/15. Maybe next time 80/20?

    The ones I have done are with 80/20 and turned out well.  Too lean means less flavor usually. Good looking meatloaf.

    Not much better than meatloaf on the Egg.
    Salado TX Egg Family: 2 Large and a very well used Mini, just added a Mini Max (I'm good for now).

    Try some deer meat in it!
    When in doubt add more pepper.
