    Hello Folks,

    Meowey here with another post. Several folks in the last week or so have posted smoked meat loaf. It put the idea in my head that I had not smoked meat loaf in a long while.

    I'm planning a meal that features the smoked meat loaf, my Aunt Sara's "Dutch" lettuce salad, and my Mac & Cheese. The "Dutch" lettuce is a salad that features torn lettuce topped with her sweet and sour bacon dressing. (Everything is better with bacon!!)

    The weather here is not really prime for smoking, so I'm using the GOSM today for temp control. The overnight low here was 3°F, with a predicted high of 28°F. We have had our first real snowfall. Here are a few pics I shot yesterday in and around Lake Placid, NY.

    The loaf is 3.35 lbs of 90% gr beef, 2 beaten eggs, 1½ packets of onion soup mix, 2/3 cup of both ketchup and water, 1TBL of Worcestershire, and 1 TBL of grated parmesan. Mixed and then add enough unseasoned bread crumbs to bring to desired texture. I will be smoking with apple and spraying the loaf with the 3-1 mix of apple juice and Captain Morgan's Original Spiced rum. I will glaze the loaf the last hour or so with a piquant sauce of ketchup, brown sugar, dry mustard, and nutmeg, thinned with the AJ/CM mix.

    Loaf ready to go

    More Q-view later - time to spray the loaf (and maybe get a pic or two).

    Take care, have fun, and do good!

    Regards,

    The recipe is in the first post of this thread. There is some grated parmesan in it. I smoke it to an internal temp of 145°F. Today I'm running the smoker at 240-245°F and hoping it will be done in about 4 hours.

    Hope this helps!

    Take care, have fun, and do good!

    Great Q Views, really projects the meatloaf. Once I am able to smoke again, a meatloaf will be near the top of my list of things to smoke. Great smoke my friend!
