    First meatloaf on the PBC

    Thanks to Kathryn for the inspiration, I smoked my first meatloaf today. The cook time was 1:25 with the PBC settling in about 295 until the meat started dripping then settling in at 302 after that. I did crack the lid initially to get the temp up to 325. That meatloaf was amazing, great smoke flavor( pecan chunks), seasoned well and very moist. I made the loaf with 2 lbs. of ground chuck 80/20 and covered it with center cut bacon. For the seasonings I didn't measure but used what I thought I needed for 2 lbs of the following:
    Louisiana brand cajun seasoning
    McCormick's garlic and Herb seasoning
    Onion Powder
    Salt and Pepper

    Wet Ingredients:
    4 TBSP of chili sauce
    1/3 cup of whole milk
    1 egg beaten

    Then I added what I needed of Progresso Garlic and Herb bread crumbs. I don't think we'll be having meatloaf in the oven again . I did crisp the bacon under the broiler for a little over a minute after it was done.

        Deuce, you did a great job with that meatloaf. I can almost taste it from looking at those photos!

        You got it right when you said you'd probably never be making meatloaf in the oven again. That's just how we feel. It's an awesome taste and pretty easy to make.

        I'm at the point where I make 3 at a time so we can eat one, give one to friends and freeze the third. I make two at once and then for the 3rd one, I use my Great Grate and hang a chicken in the hole. We've got great leftovers for several nights that way.

          We also made a smoked meatloaf last night - absolutely spectacular. Used the Kamado Joe recipe from their YouTube channel. It was a sort of last-minute thing, and meatloaf isn't generally very photogenic so I didn't take time to get any pics. Sadly there was nothing left over to document other than an empty pan.

            Next on the list:
            • smoked meatloaf
            • smoked fatty (maple sausage roll)
            • WINGS!

            Thanks for the reminder/inspiration!

              I am all over this idea, bacon wrapped too, what couldn't be good with bacon wrapped around it.
