Norah Grace’s Perfect Meatloaf

ryanttryantt Posts: 2,230
Yesterday, Norah Grace decided she wanted to make meatloaf. We took out 2 pounds of 80/20 CAB beef and 1lb of bacon.  She seasoned the meatloaf with a mix of BBQ Bob’s 7 bone beef rub and Dizzy Pigs  Mediterranean-ish. The meatloaf was then smoked at 300 with a few SmokerBricx, she used a mix of hickory and cherry wood.  Here are a few photos of her efforts. 

 The bacon weave is looking solid

Looking like a pro 

Temp is at 160and the sweet sticky glaze is set

She served the meatloaf with a mash of potatoes, parsnips, and turnips. 

All and all I’d say she killed it with this cook.   Kind of nice to see her still crushing it.   As a side note, we are loving the Misfits Market Box we receive every’s gotten us to use other veggies that we would not typically purchase....

    @alaskanassasin the misfits market is where she got the stuff for her mash...we would have never purchased parsnips or turnips from the store...but when you just get random produce shipped you figure out what to do with it.   It’s been fun looking up different items we’ve received and figure out how to use them.  Also turns out we like more veggies than we thought lol.

    Strong work right there as always.  Congrats.  Continue to keep it fun.

    @lousubcap keeping it fun is the much as I love having her cook with me, the minute it’s not fun for her it’s all over.  I’ve been trying to let her pick, plan and execute the entire cook these days. 

    Today she going to make pizza, which we’ve done together tons of times, but today I’m only permitted to take photos and cleanup of course.

    Just don't make her cook or eat parsnips or turnips. That'll kill anyone's enthusiasm! =) Looking forward to the pizza pics.

    I hate it when I go to the kitchen for food and all I find are ingredients!

    Meatloaf is always a treat when cooked on the egg. Wrapping in a bacon weave makes it a feast. Well done.
