Got a good video emailed to me the other day on a smoked meatloaf. Looked so good I had to try it (thanks to Bill over at bbqcoach.com for posting it!).

Followed the ingredients almost exactly. I even found the creole mustard! Only thing I changed was rather than using 3 lbs of GB, I went with 2 lbs of GB, and 1 lbs of ground pork. Also, made a mixture of ketchup and bbq sauce (from Lil Abners in Tucson) rather than straight ketchup to coat the loaf with. Here's the pics:

Smoker: UDS
Fuel: The Good One Lump Charcoal
Smoke: Cherry Wood Chunks
Temp: 240-270

Ingredients (L to R): My rub, CBP, A-1, Minced Garlic, Horseradish, Creole Mustard, Worcestershire Sauce, Tabasco, Dales, Bread Crumbs

2 lbs Ground Beef (80/20). 1 lbs Ground Pork. 1 Cup shredded cheese, 1 egg. Bill's recipe calls for 3 lbs ground beef but had to change something right

All ready to be mixed in. Threw in a few cubes of cheese as well

For a side, we cubed up some Yukon Gold potatoes, mixed with some Pecan Oil and Onion Soup Mix. Then a good shake of Mad Hunky over the top of it all. Baked @ 425 for 30 mins.

This was sooo good. I'm glad I followed the recipe and added those few ingredients I didnt have. It was by far the best meatload I've ever had!

I had to go an check my e-mail and I didn't get the video but I also have a meatloaf in the smoker now. I hope that mine looks as good as yours does. The wife said she wanted one and my wife gets just about anything she asked for well maybe that tall dark Italian guy that she's been crying out for at night.

Looks great! I love smoked meatloaf. I use Sage JD sausage for mine. 1-lb sausage, 1 egg, bread crumbs, a red bell pepper, worcestershire sauce, minced onion, garlic powder, CBP. Mix it all up and put worcestershire sauce on top. Sometimes put some cheese in it too. The worcestshire sauce gives it a nice crunchy texture. No ketchup or tomato sauce/paste on my meatloaf. If I cook it in the oven, I make some brown gravy to put on it and the mashed potatoes. Gotta have mashed taters with meatloaf.

Looking good. I love smoked meatloaf big time. We do a ground meat / sausage combo with a bunch of spices etc and wrap in bacon.  Smoke with pecan - mmmm good

Our if you are able (I don't know if you are allowed) email me the video? Thanks and great Q-View!
