Smoked Meatloaf - pic heavy

Made my first meatloaf on the Egg tonight. It was delicious - thanks to @Griffin for the recipe! http://griffinsgrub.wordpress.com/2011/12/08/smoked-meatloaf/ ;

I had some italian sausage to use up, so I mixed it in with the beef. Also added garlic to the celery and onions. Had never thought to sauté celery. The onions, garlic, and celery smelled incredible. My wife said it was the best meatloaf she has ever had!

    Ok, time to turn in your "man" card if you did not already have that in mind.

    I clicked on the link to see which meatloaf you did, but it didn't work. I'm guessing it was the "Smoked Meatloaf" rather than the 1770 House Meatloaf. If so, that was the one that the Collucci Brothers made on Throwdown with Bobby Flay (and if memory serves me correctly, they did beat him). Yours lookg great and I'm glad you liked it. Thinking its time for me to do another meatloaf. Been awhile. Thanks for the reminder.

    Ditch the foil next time. Smoked meatloaf is so good and the sandwiches are solid as Mickey said.

    I used foil originally to catch all the drippings so the place setter wouldn't get nasty, now I just put foil on the place setter (if I think about it)

  • Thanks! Had the sandwiches today for lunch - turned out great.

  • Great cook.  I have done two on the LBGE.  Wonderful.  Tonight, SWMBO, did one in the oven since we are both a little under the weather.  Meatloaf with baked potatoes smothered with creamed corn.  Gods most perfect meal.

  • My wife questioned buying the fresh herbs, but combined with Apple wood in the BGE and the 1770 House meatloaf was amazing.

    My 1st loaf I made with 1#(and it's not a hashtag) ground chuck and some pork chops( about 2#) I ground up. The market only had frozen so I had to punt. Next time I'll go to the meat market where my Dad worked and get the ground pork and veal mix and some ground chuck as a starter. Then add the balance of ingredients . The pork make it much more moist.
