First meatloaf...

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter the smoker that is,  I have been making meatloaf for years. I put this in fatties cause it is made with both beef and pork so i figured this was the most appropriate category. I got a little carried away, I had 2 lbs of ground beef and 1 pound of pork, I was going to make 1/2 the beef into patties for the freezer but decided to use all of it in the meatloaf, with the pound of bacon and 8oz of cheese it was over 4 lbs. It will get eaten though, my wife loves my meatloaf but, SHE PUTS KETCHUP ON IT!!!!!!! I tried forbidding her to do it but you married guys know how that goes, didn't work out well. LOL



I did the bacon weave after learning about it on here, not as pretty as some of you more experienced guys but it worked




The finished product, took over 4 hours at 225-240 deg. I took it out at 170 internal temp,



Sliced after resting for about 1/2 hour. I probably could have added some more cheese.


It came out good but I am not sure it was that much better than it usually comes out in the oven. I might do it again but only if I am smoking something else and want to fill the smoker.


I am doing some striped bass today, I will post the results...stay tuned...

That is a great looking meatloaf. Congrats on the smoke and the ingenuity.

As for the ketsup issue,  that is easily resolved. I don't have ANY ketsup in the house and my daughter who loves the crap on her eggs has learned to use salsa instead

That's one monster meatloaf!  I'll bet it was tasty.


Another thing that you can do to discourage the use of ketchup is to glaze it with BBQ sauce like this one:


That's my favorite meatloaf recipe, but I haven't smoked one yet.

That sounds like a good recipe, similar to mine, I will have to try adding some parm cheese and brown sugar. I use salsa in mine.
