1st time smoking Meatloaf

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 

I have a couple of quick questions. I only have mesquite or hickory wood, which one would you recommend? I typically try to keep my temp at 225, is this a good temp, and about how long should it take? Any other suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you!!

Mesquite is kinda stron. I would go with Hickory myself. Take that bad boy to about 160-165 & your gonna love it. Maybe put some kinda BBQ sauce on top or wrap in bacon MMMMMMMMM

Hickory smoked meatloaf is awesome. Put some bacon on top to keep it moist.

Thanks, going to smoke at 225. I am going to make two each weight 2lbs using Jeff's recipe. Any thoughts to approximately how long it might take?

Until it hits 160. Can't remember how long that is. I think about 5 hours.

Thanks for the recipe. I am going to cook two of them so I may try two different recipes and may give yours a shot.

Good luck with the loaf,

I like to start mine in a loaf pan the first 1-2 hrs to set the shape, Then place on the cooking rack and smoke.

That way you don't get a flat loaf.

Hope this helps.
