Smoked Meatloaf - QView

  1. This is my first attempt at cooking a meatloaf in my Masterbuilt XL Propane smoker. It came out fantastic. I tried this same recipe in my MES40 & I didn't like it. I haven't cooked in my MES40 since I got the new smoker. I guess craigslist gets my old smoker. Bad part is that the MES40 is only a month or two old. But that's a different story.. lol

    I used the recipe from yardbird in the post http://www.smokingmeatforums.com/t/115901/today-is-first-smoke-day. Thanks yardbird for this recipe. It is very tasty..

    I cooked the meatloaf between 225 & 240. It was a windy day yesterday & the temp did fluctuate. I cooked it until the IT reached 180. My wife & I like our meat done more than most. We like for the hamburger meat to be firm. The higher temp didn't hurt the meatloaf one bit. The bark was excellent & the inside was nice & moist. It took about 5 hours total smoke time as this was a 3 lb meatloaf. I had smoke going the whole time. I used Oak Chunks for the smoke.

    Here are the pics..

    I smoked in this pan. I used my pocket knife to cut holes in the pan for the grease to drain from.

    Love smoked meatloaf,  delicious and easy.  Hard to beat on sandwiches the next day.  Thanks for the Q view.
     
  7. That's a thing of beauty. Fried leftover sammies with bbq sauce are pretty good.
