Smoked Meatloaf

Whipped up a smoked meatloaf the other night. Turned out great! For the breadcrumbs, I always use ground up croutons. Gives it great flavor. I learned that trick from Alton Brown. Also added in some minced onions, carrots, celery, eggs, worcestershire, dijon mustard, stubbs BBQ sauce and other seasonings. The meat was a mixture of ground beef, veal and pork. Sauced with a mixture of Stubbs, Dijon and honey. Turned out great!

    That is a nice looking beef brick! 

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

    That looks great! Do you turn it all during the cook (it doesn't look like it)?
    Well, "spa-Peggy" is kind of like spaghetti. I'm not sure what Peggy does different, if anything. But it's the one dish she's kind of made her own.

  • Looking good.  It's too close to lunch to be looking at this, but I couldn't help myself.  That's on my menu for the weekend

    Thx y'all! No turning is involved. Just left it in place indirect the whole time. @henapple, I didn't grind my own with this meatloaf. I bought it pre-ground.

    Mouth watering!! How does the BBQ flavor come across in a meatloaf? Never thought of doing smoked meatloaf on the egg but seems like anything can go well on the egg :D

    Thx y'all! @bbqlearner, the smoke and BBQ flavor puts the meatloaf over the top! They go together perfectly. Try it, I promise you'll like it. :)

    looks great.
    I usually use ground turkey instead of beef and wrap in a bacon blanket.
    just before I remove it(about 20mins or so) I dust it with brown sugar.
    Sooo good
