Folks, I have become addicted to cedar planked meatloaf... so has my family.  So much so, that I have devised at least a dozen recipes.  I have tweaked it to perfection.

 

But this time I am taking a different approach and instead of my usual hamburger meat/ground pork meat mixture, I'm grinding a variety of steaks and also grinding pork butt for the meat.  I will use the rest of my recipe as normal (cedar planked meatloaf with mesquite/hickory smoke) which features a really nice bacon wrap topping.

 

As usual, I will post updates about the outcome and plenty of Q-view... so if you're on the forums tomorrow night, be sure to tune in.

 

Hope all are doing well!

Okay folks, so here we are.

 

I have just put my planked steakloaf on the grill.

 

Here's what I did:

 

Ingredients:

 

Grounded 1.8 lbs chuck steak/eye of round steaks

Grounded 1.5 lbs bone in shoulder pork steaks

1 jalapeno

1 whole finely chopped green pepper

1 half finely chopped onion

2 finely chopped carrots

1/2 tspn oregano

1 tbspn olive oil

1/2 tspn basil

1/2 tspn worcestershire sauce

pepper

salt

1 cup panko crumbs

2 eggs

1/8 cup milk

1/4 tspn smoked paprika

 

Ground the meat, added to herb/vegetable, olive oil, worcestshire sauce mix and set to marinate for 2-3 hours. (everything except milk, panko and eggs).

 

Added eggs, milk, and panko to mixture just before cooking and mix thoroughly.

 

Season plank and mold meatloaf.  Top with rub and coat with bacon strips.

then place on grill at 350+ or for around 1.5 hours.  will take on lot of smoke.

Half way to heaven, folks...

Just to clarify,

 

I am cooking on a weber offset setup at around 375-400F..  350 is ok too, but keeping steady TBS via mesquite and cherry mixture.  I mis-typed hickory in the OP.

 

To go with this meal is a mixed grilled vegetable medley (asparagus, onion, mushroom) marinated in a red wine vinegraette and parmesean mashed potatoes.

 

For the meat sauce, I use 2 parts bbq sauce, 2 parts red wine vinegar  and 2 parts ketchup with salt, pepper and dash of butter.

It sure doesn't sound like anything I would have tried?  Having said that, I didn't get a taster.

 

Good luck and good smoking.
