Meat Loaf

I have read a lot about meat loaf and there looks like a few different ways. I need to be able to cook in 1.5 or 2 hrs max. I do not have a raised grid. I have a cast iron and the stainless. I have read both direct and indirect methods. Anyone got an idea for a under 2 hr way without a raised setup. Thanks for the help

    You should have no problem doing meatloaf indirect in less than two hours, here is my first attempt @ meat loaf from a while back.  It really turns out well, good luck.
