Read about it, wondered about it, thought it might be good. Man did I underestimate that! It is spectacular. Mixed the following pretty standard meatloaf recipe:
3lbs of 80-20 Hamburger
cup and a half of bread crumbs
table spoon of salt
table spoon of pepper
one green pepper diced
one white onion diced
3/4 can of diced tomato with basil and garlic
mix all that completely
Put half of it down and then packed that with white cheddar cheese. Covered it with the other half.
Put a pan with one inch of water, beer, and vinegar on the first level of my smoker and laid the meatloaf over it on the second. Draped the entire meatloaf in bacon, double layered.
Smoker was at 250 and stayed there the entire cook. Smoked it over charcoal and some apple wood for exactly four hours. At the 3 1/2 hours mark I slathered it with chipolte, bbq, and vinegar (premixed by me) and let that carmelize on top of it for 30 minutes. Took it off in a pan, let it sit covered for 45 minutes, uncovered it and watched it disappear. Man that is the way to make meatloaf. Can't go wrong.
