did my first meat loaf yesterday, not over impressed by it . found it a bit dry and could of been spicyer, the recipe was for 16 pound of meat and i was only using 4 and a bit pound so had to scale everything down , i think it was a bit to much bread crumbs and not enough fat in the meat that made it a bit dry , i rubbed it with mustard and my rib rub befor it went in , put it in at 3 pm and took it out at 6.10 pm internal was170, i had the smoker sitting on about 275 most of the time , used some bits of peach wood for the smoke . the meat i used was beef mince about 900 gram i think and pork mince about 400 gram , anyway when all mixed up with the other stuff it was just over 4 pound in your lingo .i realy thought the pork mince would of made it plenty fatty enough, the beef was very lean though.
