    I had ground up 10 pounds of chuck for various things and decided to smoke a 2 pound meatloaf...





    This is a family meatloaf recipe..


    2 eggs.................... ..............1/4 teaspon oregano,basil,tyme.tarragon
    cup bread crumbs..................... teaspoon salt
    1/2 medium grated onion............ couple grinds malabar pepper
    1/4 small red,green pepper ........1/4 cup parsley
    4 cloves my garlic.................... 1/3 pound mozzerela
    2 tablespoons worchestshire....... 1/3 pound provolone
    1/4 cup red wine
    1/4 cup reduced tomato sauce


    Mixed it up and let absorb in fridge few hours







    Rolled out and added cheese








    Came up with this to smoke it on








    Ready for smoker.Used small chunk pecan,red oak,cherry









    Had some fresh pulled beets and steamed/boiled













    Reduced some of my canned tomatoes and added tomato paste and garlic then coated meatloaf for last 20 minutes


    All done-someone said it smelled smokey like my ribs








    Was much better then i expected.Smokey and moist...Will do again!

    Great job Alex!
    I had hated meatloaf for a long time due to, well childhood experiences with it and never ate it since. About a year ago I figured I would try smoking one and it turns out it was great!
    Only tried it the one time but after looking at your post I see another meatloaf smoke in the near future.
