OK...it has been a long time since I have absolutely been disgusted with something that I have smoked...but this is one of those rare ocassions. Let me start out with the meal plan. I think I have been pretty honest about my general apathy for meatloaf. I have never really liked it, and I think it is a textural thing for me. Last week Mrs. Engineer began to request some meatloaf, and she was quick to point out that I could smoke it to bring me on board. So there you have it...Smoked meatloaf, Some wilted Swiss Chard with Bacon, and cheese potatoes. I prepared the meatloaf and got that going. 2 lbs of hamburger, seasoned bread crumbs, onions, green chilis, eggs as a binder. Seasoned well, and into the smoker. As it neared completion, I picked some Swiss Chard from Mrs. Engineer's small garden...(the weather has been so nice, the chard has gotten enormous). I chopped the chard into sections and removed the stalk...Into the pan with some sesame oil and bacon bits. I pulled the meatloaf and got that ready to go...It looked really nice. Plated with some cheesy potatoes... It looked really good, and I couldn't wait to dig in. I could tell with my first bite of meatloaf, that this was not good. In fact it was horrible. Mrs. Engineer couldn't eat it either. So we had a dinner of cheesy potatoes and wilted chard, both of which was really good. The meatloaf was so over smoked that it was just horrible! I don't like meatloaf very well any way, but I thought that smoked it may work for me. It didn't. We threw the whole thing away. I don't know what I did wrong, except make meatloaf. Thanks for looking at my colossal failure.
