  • Re: Xmas Gift Idea? better way to light the lump

    Mapp torch.  I’m never going back to the looft lighter, started cubes, etc...
  • Re: Smoked Meat Loaf

    Forgot to mention, no pan for me either.  I line a loaf pan with Saran Wrap, then form the loaf in the pan.  Take to the Egg, flip it upside down on the grate and remove the pan and wrap.  Nice even shaped meatloaf.  
  • Re: Any killer meat loaf suggestions?

    Here is the one I have been making through some trial and error.

    2.5 lbs. ground chuck
    1.5 lbs Italian sausage
    3 eggs
    4 Tbls Worchestershire
    2 Tbls Dizzy Pig Red Eye Express
    1 small yellow onion
    1 green or red bell pepper
    garlic - probably 1.5 Tbsl
    oats / panko bread crumbs
    salt and pepper to taste

    Cook the pepper and onion in some olive oil to soften.  Add garlic last 5 minutes.

    Combine all ingredients and mix thoroughly.  Add some oats (probably not even a 1/4 cup) and then some panko breadcrumbs until it thickens up some.  you don't want it to loose or it won't stay together and too much bread crumbs and oats make can make it dense and dry.

    I put the whole thing in a large foil loaf pan that has been sprayed with Pam.  Set the Egg up indirect at 300 and then invert the foil loaf pan on the grate and plop out the loaf.  Reshape with your hands if necessary.  I use a chunk of pecan and cherry.

    Cook until an internal temp of 158.  Then glaze with a mix of Hot Watchula's Peach BBQ sauce and another (non peach sauce).   Let sit on the Egg to firm up the glaze.

    This makes a bunch of meatloaf and it never lasts long in our house.  Even my 11 year old who is a fairly picky eater tried some the other day after I asked him to please take just "one bite and try it".  He tried it, smiled, then looked at me and said "I underestimated that" and proceeded to eat 2 pieces.

    The Red Eye express can be a bit spicy so try it first with maybe just 1.5 Tbls. 

    The Peach BBQ sauce with Italian sausage may sound a bit odd but we love that sauce and it goes nicely with the meatloaf.

    Just get a band hardware kit and you will have extra parts for a while.  My dealer sells them for like $7.   No big deal
    Great idea but my dealer is a pretty small outfit and they didn't have any when I stopped this morning.  Like the suggestion though and I will stop tomorrow to see about them ordering me one on the next truck.  Always good to have backups!

    Beautiful dog!  Glad they got it figured out and hopefully those bad days are in the past.  They are part of the family for sure!!
