Raised temp to 250° then 270°. Meatloaf was a little thicker than anticipated so was taking its sweet time. Just about 4 hrs to get to temp. ( higher temps start to finish next time )

Plated with some green beans.
Side note; ( Potatoes would benefit from higher temps also) very middle could use extra heat.

those potatoes look good. I usually cheat and nuke mine a little bit before they go on also. We’re they on for the whole cook

Meatloaf looks premo. Just discovered hassleback potatoes last year and are my new favorite. Yours look great. My favorite addition to what you have is adding some shredded parm or Asiago and minced fresh oregano.

Yes , they we're on for entire smoke. Nuked a bit more and could get by with a just a couple hrs. Need to cool down completely to slice cleanly though.

What's your meat mix?
Meat mix was 50/50 venison and pork butt. Did about 30# earlier as we were running low on beef burger.
