    I've been hearing alot about the smoked meatloaf so I finally decided to try it. Man oh Man, I've waited far too long. I could not believe how good it was. I need to add, my Grandmother made the best meatloaf. I loved it and still do. I figured, how much better could it be.

    So, I took her recipe, and decided to put it to the smoker test with hickory and 250 degree temps. Took just over 3-hours to get to 160 internal and then I left it on a bit for some small extras.

    Here is the start. I put 6 holes in the bottom of the pan. I also have to add I used Bossman's cooking style and am a Big believer, Thanks!

    On top of that, I decided to put some Jeff's rub on:

    As it turned out, I had a helper which is my 3-yr old who just dicovered glasses, Alex:

    I smoked it for an hour in the pan, then I flipped it out of the pan and left it on foil until it hit 160:

    Once it hit 160, I flipped it back into the pan and put a light catsup glaze on top and left it on for another 30 miniutes and didn't worry about the temp of the meat:

    Then, we served up dinner with some salad and artichokes:

    The best thing I heard was from my 5 year old, "Dad, this is so good I don't even want any catsup on it." My wife has not been a big meatloaf fan and absolutely loved it as well. This recipe will get some miles in this house.

    Thanks for the cooking tips Bossman [​IMG]

    Woo Hoo! Meat loaf is my wife's (Queen of the Microwave) main comfort food. heading to GA to see her this weekend for my son's first birthday. Think I'll surprise her with a smoked stuffed meatloaf. Hope mine turns out as good as yours looks! [​IMG]

    Well, you'll just have to read my post but I was not as happy as you were Abelman. Glad yours came out well for you. I need more work and maybe Grandma's recipe. [​IMG]

    Good looking stuff. I'm getting to where I like meatloaf better off the pit than I do the oven.

    Looks like it's time to head back to Kroger for some ground beef!

    I'm thinkin' that meatloaf has as much, if not more, potential than fatties for experimentation. My wife makes an awesome loaf; time to kick it into another realm of deliciousness.

    Well done!
