    This is my first go at meatloaf.   All I can say is it's nothing short of awesome!!

    I used 2 parts beef, one part pork.

    Onion, green pepper, mushrooms, bread crumbs and a  dash of bbq sauce about a TBS of Jeffs rub.

    Once mixed, dusted the top with jeffs rub again.

    I picked up some small trays at the dollar store to put it in.   I didn't want  it fall apart in the smoker.  I cut the trays down to about 1in. just enough to hold it.  I also poked holes in the bottom to let the juice out.

    The loaf turned out super moist.    This definitely lives up the its fame. 

    I smoked to an IT of 160F.   A little over 4 hours at225-250F.

  2. That really looks goods     Nice Job

  4. Those are nice looking loaves!  Meatloaf is one of my favorite meats I've put in the smoker so far.
  5. Awesome job, one of my favorites. Glad it turned out so well! Even makes a good meatloaf sandwich the next day for lunch.

    Looks great. Is it just me, or is that meatloaf smiling in the sliced pic? I like to use a mix of beef, pork, and lamb.

    Thanks everyone for your kind words.

    The wife said I put to many onions in it, but I thought it was flawless!   I wanted to put cheese in one of them, but as the day went on, my memory gets shorter.  It may have been the JB and, or beer... 

    If you've ever smoke meatloaf you know how awesome this is.  We had some friends over for dinner that night.   Along with the smoked tators and bacon wrapped shrimp and oysters  it was an awesome evening!     I will be doing this again.   

    Again, thanks for the kind words.   I've been a part of this forum for about 3 years now.  I can't say enough for the unselfishness of folks to help.  Many folks have helped me along the way.   From smoker building help, sausage, bacon, to just wanting to learn.  Thanks to everyone.   I can't begin to call names, I would surely miss one.   If you have taken time to return my PMs for probably silly questions.  Thank you.

    Hard to put too many onions in it unless they didn't get cooked, but then again the wife's vote is an important one.  [​IMG]

    Thanks guys.    Its really hard to mess up meatloaf.   The smoker just made it awesome!     

    The pans worked really well.   No worry about sticking in the smoker.   They also help keep the loaf from falling apart.    By cutting them down you still get full smoke

    I like the idea of the pans as well - nice way to make 2 meals perhaps.

    I followed Jeff' s recipe as well but used my frog mats to keep the mix together. Kept it from stick as well
