    Well we bought the gosm BB and finally received all the parts to make it work. Took 3 weeks but now it is here and I wanted to do a meatloaf so....

    The wife made it with all the parts I know some of them.

    We do not measure so every time we do something it comes out a little better or ???

    We put 3# of 90/10 1# of Italian sausage hot spice,

    About a 1/2 cup of onions, 1/3 cup of green bell pepper both diced well.

    tomato sauce but forgot to add it to the meat and other stuff, I was getting the smoker going so i missed some of the parts.

    put 2 strips of bacon on top and used tomato sauce over the top...

    Here is the start.

    Was real good but a little spicy so next time we will not use the Italian sausage hot spice but just regular sausage... May add more onion and green pepper for more taste.

    Thanks for looking we enjoyed it and have a lot of lunches coming up!!!!
     
  2. 1. That meatloaf looks awesome.  I need to remember to try sausage instead of straight ground beef and pork.

    2.  You are good man for not having those Quail join the meatloaf in the smoker.

    3.  You keep the cleanest smoker I have ever seen!  Props on a great smoke.

  9. Looks real good there.

    How did the bacon work out for ya. would you do it again with more than 2 slices or would that take away from the surface area to take in the smoke?

    What wood did you use?

    Temp and Time Served?

    Sorry i don't eat Quail because they are like pets right now...
     
    Yes the bacon was good on top, next time I may nuke it for a few minutes first to get it cooking as it did not get crisp. Could use 3 also.

    I had some pkg of pelts and use apple and also used the hickory chunks i had. Had smoke all the way through the smoke.

    4.5 hrs at about 230-250 Had a little wind that keep it changing but stayed in the range i wanted.

    It was great... smoke was ok little short but i think that was because of the tomato sauce on the out side. A little over spicy for us, but will have many lunches next week.!!
     

    Good smoking...
