Meat Loaf on the BGE

My team's not playing today and Sandy's passing by leaving us with a blustery, slightly cooler daycast here in So. Fla. The plan: One kid has allergy to egg so no egg to bind but we still want to form a loaf that is exposed all way 'round to the internal BGE environment. Lean (we are always on a diet). Not beef, wife not into 'red meat'. Therefore, 3 packages of ground turkey from Costco. Tomato & fresh herb (parsley, sage and or basil) theme. Add in the trinity: carrots, celery, onion (a few hot peppers on the side later for me, on second thought a handful of ABTs for 'Dad'). Maybe grill the onions first, too. S&P&GP. For 'breadcrumbs': a bag or two of goldfish crackers (parm and or cheddar). Go kind of low and slow on the LBGE at 250 - 275F dome temp with ..... hmmmm .... some apple chips or chunks for smoke. Cook to internal temp of what, 145F minimum but it's ground turkey so might want to go up to about 170F then let it rest. And it will need a glaze on top for the last 15 minutes or so, the kids love ketchup so some-o-dat with brown sugar and a few dashes of mustard and vinegar mixed in. Estimate about 4 lbs. Figure about 2 hours? .... here we go! Hope you are enjoying your BGE this weekend, too.
