  • Oh , i'm hungry again and i just finished stuffing myself !!  And then potatoes look pretty darn good too!!!  Thanks for posting.  I made a big meatloaf one time and oversmoked it -- the smoke taste was just too strong, i'll make no more meatloaf using smoke!!

    Looks solid. Hope you have some dukes mayo, lettuce, tomato, and plain old white bread for your sandwich tomorrow.

  • Well I'm holding down on my carbs so I'll just gorge again on the remaining portion. I promised I'd bring my coworkers a sample as well. But I'm saving the end piece for me. I gave the other end piece to my oldest daughter. A fathers love is amazing. Huh. Charlie, that is mashed cauliflower. Very tasty. Also, I had a couple of apple wood chunks in there. And a couple of very small handfuls of pecan. Had juuuuust enough smoke to tell it was smoked.

    Also, SWMBO didn't eat the edges because it was still "red" and wasn't done. Smoke ring maybe??

  • Anything special on that cauliflower dish ?
  • I just put in butter, garlic, salt, pepper & milk. I nuked them till they were soft. Then put them in the chopper and them mixed it all up to taste. I think a food processor would make them more fluffy. They were a bit grainy. But very tasty. I'll take that over taters anyday. Stole the idea from @hapster

  • @Central_Bama_Egger never heard of the outside of a piece of meat being raw while the inside is cooked in a smoker/grilling setup but I could be proved wrong.
    I raise my kids, cook and golf.  When work gets in the way I'm pissed, I'm pissed off 48 weeks a year.

  • Me either. But that smoke ring was damn tasty!!

  • Been wanting to do a loaf think this just moved it up. What was your temp and time?
  • 400 indirect till it was 160. I think next time I'm gonna move it down to 350. Took about 45-50 min

  • Looks awesome.  Thanks for sharing.  I'm eating breakfast right now, but thinking about a meatloaf dinner already.

    Looks amazing- nice job!  

    Which came first the chicken or the egg?  I egged the chicken and then I ate his leg.

     Smoke ring maybe??
    Yup.  Mine get them too.

  • I do mine at 260 indirect with the meatloaf directly on the grate, drip pan underneath for about 2.5 hrs. comes out great if you have the extra time for the lower temp.

  • Nice work!

    I did a meatloaf last Friday.. Mixed a pound of ground beef with a pound of Italian sausage, an egg, some Italian breadcrumbs, some Cosmic Cow and a little salt and pepper.. Came out great.. Very dense though.  Cooked it at 325 indirect for about 1.5 hours.

  • It's a sad night in central alabama....... I just ate the last of the leftover meatloaf. It's almost like I'm having to leave a beautiful vacation spot and headed back to work.
