Smoked Ground beef loaf style...

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
In trying to plan my dinners and lunches in advance a few days ahead I had 2lbs ground beef I was splitting up for different menus... so I decided to smoke it all and hope what ever I make recipe wise the smoke wont effect it....
Smoked Beef Stroganoff is on for tomorrow... yum!
Anyways

I used a basic meatloaf recipe.. I just didnt add ketchup like some call for..
1/2 cup italian bread crumbs
1 egg
2lbs ground beef 80/20
I lg grated onion with its juices added to bowl(if you can catch the juice.. its greatness)
Some dashes of garlic powder
S/P to taste (me.. extra extra cracked black)

Ingredients in the high $ mixer

All rolled into a loaf or log of blob.. little extra SPOG on top

On the rack.. with some sliced onions for what ever i might need some smoked onions for later.... and some garlic salt to smoke as well..

decided to bust out the propane smoker... gotta get back to where it began every once in a while. . Its sad shes cleaner inside than out..hehe

Smoked with a few oak and mesquite chunks.. around 240* for about 2 hours. .maybe 2.5 until IT was 145..

Split for easy wrap up. ..

Little close up.. had a little ring.



Anyways. Another bored night thought I would post what I did tonight...
Thanks

Happy night!

Looks good Mikey  thumb1%20copy.gif   & smoked onions are good snacks all on their own once in a while  :smile:   How did the salt turn out? I usually smoke mine a LOT longer to get it the way I want it...

Thanks Jermey...its not a large hunk of brined and smoked gooodness like you've been busy with... but ...
And the Garlic salt I had a little left over after transferring all my spices to self magnetic containers for easier organization (trying to follow your lead.. biggrin.gif) so just threw it on to see what I get. It took on color and smelled smokie.. but.. it tasted like the beef smelled! Greatness! Ill let it sit for a few and then taste. ...

Nice looking meatloaf, or as I like to call it Lazy mans fatty! I like to do two at a time and then freeze one. I usually slice it and package two slices to a pack for easy lunch meals. I freeze the slices then vac pac them. Works great.

Thanks Case. I wont need to freeze any of this this go round. But I have been cooking extras just for the vacpac ready meals. I like the tip to freeze first.. sounds like the slices will stay intact rather than be squished when all the air is sucked out.... thanks!icon14.gif

Extra shrooms are always good & those smoked onions top off the beef slices nicely - good combo there Mikey  Thumbs Up  I bet you're gonna like your new spice setup - easy access & you can tell at a glance if you're getting low on anything.

I pre-freeze most everything prior to vac packing. A trick I learned when I was fishing. All the commercial processors blast freeze then vac pac, if they are vac packing. Last night I made up two dozen 1/3 pound hamburger patties, loaded them onto a baking sheet  ( use wax paper to separate) into the freezer for a few hours then packed, two per pack. Did the same with grated zucchini. For that I measure out per cup, put it in the vac bag and then into the freezer overnight. Pull it out and then seal. We put up a bunch of zucchini and zucchini bread this year.
