    So once again we are porked out from the ribs/PP at super bowl and we have a 5lb chub of hamburger just waiting for somethign to come of it.. Yep Meatloaf again.. So I made it up tossed it in the smoker and when I pulled it out to serve it up for dinner the wife started laughing so hard she had tears running down her cheeks.. Once she calmed down enough to speak I asked her what was so damned funny her exact response was
    "That looks like a smoked Armadillo"
    So without further ado...

    That is funny. Points to the wife for her quick wit!

    Did you just throw the chub on or did you mix anything in with it?

    It's my basic meatloaf recipe...

    1 egg/pound of meat
    Rub in this case Big Ron's In The House no clue to the amount probably 1/4c or so
    Ketchup
    BBQ sauce I actually used some Stubbs original that I had in the fridge
    Couple liberal dashes of ground chipotle
    Couple liberal dashes of smoked paprika
    1/2 an onion chopped fine
    Filler either Panko breadcrumbs or cornflake crumbs this particular one was panko amount is whatever it takes to firm it up.

    Mix well and take a good whiff if it doesnt smell good just adlib until you get the aroma you expect good meatloaf to resemble.

    Make into 2 loafs and top with bacon. On the rack and into the smoker at ~250 bake until IT hits 160 AND the bacon is cooked through the smaller one took 2 1/2 hours the larger that I just pulled out took 3
