Smoked a meatloaf today. I think I only needed the smoker to generate the smoke. The ambient temp inside my smoker prior to firing it up was 111. And the smoker sits in the shade. Patio temp was about 97.
When I finished the smoke, the outside ambient on the patio was 111. Forty minutes after I shut down the smoker and let it cool down, the ambient inside the unit according the my reliable Maverick was 143.
Great looking meatloaf and we are about to give it the taste test. Here are some pics and I'll give a flavor update later.

The taste test on this meatloaf got lots of thumbs up. Much better than the first one I did. Better texture, nice 1/8 inch smoke ring and great flavor. I think I failed to properly mix the first one and had some weird effects. Used a hickory and alder wood combo for the smoke.
This one passes muster.
That makes more sense to me, I guess I was out in the heat to much today
I love meatloaf and that looks like a good one
Great job Jim! Looks wonderful!
