Hi All!

I just realized that I had not posted this cook......

I even asked questions to other members and told them I was posting soon...

Woops....


The question I had was about onion.

I had already put the meatloaf on the smoker when I realized the onion might not get soft.

Here is the response:http://www.smokingmeatforums.com/t/233142/onion-question

The onions were perfect and the family enjoyed it.

Anyhow it turned out awesome and wanted to share.

I mixed 3lbs of ground beef with the "kitchen sink".

We had no crackers so I tried potato buds for some binder...

Mixed in some chipotle cheddar.....

Brisket rub, nutmeg, garlic, coarse salt, pepper...

Fine chopped onion....

3 eggs....

I believe that's it...

Pics do the talking from here.


These choppers are awesome and very handy!!





I put it in the Rec Tec at 225 and took it to an IT of right around 165. My smoking Buddy!

I added a thin coat of bbq sauce the last half hour.



This was really, really good!

Thanks for the look.

That looks great, still trying to convince the boss it's OK to "cook" a meatloaf outside of a loaf pan.

Great tips on making the mat "stick free".

Thanks Case! I used some Pam when I did jerky on the mats.
No stick.
I originally thought they were supposed to be "non stick"...

Ever had an egg stick in Ambon-stick pan, lol!

I always give them a little spritz of cooking spray. They do work good though for keeping stuff from falling through the grates. Easy to clean too!

Great looking meat loaf and nice smoke ring.

I agree on the Pam. I spray down EVERYTHING with it. I hate cleanups and this makes things real easy.

Mix it well until sticky.
It forms really well.

She is a purebred named Belle.
One eye is blue, the other is mostly brown with a small line on one side.
When my son was learning to walk, she would zig zag behind him...

Lol! I have wrecked many non stick pans.
The mats do work great for keeping small items from slipping through the cracks.....
I now spray them anytime I use them.....
I can't speak to the ease of cleaning them, however. My wife HATED when I used them :wife::lurk:
