Enjoying my last day of vacation before I hqve to go back to work tomorroe, thought, hmmm meatloaf would be good tonite.

Had a package of ground beef in the fridge needed to have something done with it, so took about a pound of the ground beef, a pound of ground turkey and about half a pound of breakfast sausage, tossed in an egg, some panko, some rub and a splash of bbq sauce.

Heated up the MES to 250 and tossed in some apple chips, been in since 1, sitting at 145 at the moment.

Few minutes ago mixed up a cup of bbq sauce, 1/4 bourbon, tablespoon of honey and brown sugar for a glaze. Poured it over the loaf and will let it finish smoking to 160ish.

Probably pair it with some mac and cheese and a veggie.

Also had some fresh pecans, so made up a chocolate bourbon pecan pie for afterwards.

Looks good. I feel your pain I’m back to the grind tomorrow too!! Settled for a chicken Caesar salad due to the amount of alcohol and fat snacks I chose to inhale during my time off hahaha

Wow Kevin. I guess it's true that great minds drink...er..uh..think alike. I tend to use bourbon a lot of sauces and gravies. I too have a meatloaf on the Weber right now that's basted with a bourbon gravy. Gonna be different but should be pretty tasty. Yours looks excellent!! Nice job sir.

Smoked meatloaf has kinda become a staple for us. The loose texture of the ground beef allows the smoke to easily penetrate. Gotta be careful not to overdo it.

Nice like the glaze might have to try. Not much on meatloaf foundered on it as we eat so much of it as a kid.
