Meatloaf for the 4th

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
I always made my meatloaf on the grill, but never smoked it. Smoked this time. Oh yea, that's yummy. I smoked it with hickory and maple. 4 hours at 250 degrees, the internal 163 when I took it out. Flavor was really good but not much of a smoke ring. maybe 1/8" inch. Was it because the heat was at 250 instead of 220?

Yes 220º would have been better and take it off at 160º
Smoke rings are highly overated but nice anyway ... I think the bacon absorbs much of the smoke, but wokrth it for the extra flavor.
Looks great though!
How was the moisture level for texture taste wise?

Sure looks fantastic scrollman3....nice job!!! Could be that the bacon prevented the smoke ring from being deeper, but as long as the flavor was there, is all that really counts. icon_wink.gif

Dude, that looks great!!! I really wouldn't worry about a smoke ring. It's how yummy it taste, and from the looks of that meatloaf, I bet it was good.

The moisture was fine and it tastes really good. I just thought that the smoke would penetrate the ground beef more. Thanks all.

Try it without the bacon next time and see what happens ...... icon_biggrin.gif

Looks great as is. I see absolutely nothing wrong with your effort. Smoke ring is not my final test of success. Congrats
