I have seen a lot of recipes saying that meatloaf on the grill is awesome, does anyone have a good recipe that I could try? I know its sounds needy, I have nothing in return as I am but a ROOKIE.

    I used this recipe once and made it on the egg and it turned out really good. 

    I made it into Meatloaf Wellington

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

    Copy a link to the recipe, then highlight some text and click the "Insert Hyperlink' on the toolbar above where you are typing.  It is the 3rd button from the right.  Paste the link in the "enter url" input box.   The text you select will become a hyperlink.

    I'm actually not a huge meatloaf fan, but we made this one and it was very good.

    If you have a favorite meatloaf you would bake in the oven, make the same thing for the egg.  If you have a cast iron grate, remember to flip it over so the flat sides are up to make removal easier.

    I cook mine high heat in the Lodge CI Skillet with the meat raised up on a little rack.  It lets all the fat drip off.  My recipe is eye balled ... 2 parts 80/20 ground beef, 1 part country sausage, an egg, 2/3 breadcrumbs, dash of milk, Cow Lick Rub, and diced onions.  I'm sure I am leaving something out ....  As stated above; Just do what your family usually does for a recipe but cook it on the egg.

    Any recipe I've ever done in the oven has been better on the Egg as long as you have the means to set it up.  I've made meatloaf, casseroles, corn bread, pies and cakes.  Just figure out what setup you need to bake with and you should be good to go.
