    It has been way to long since I have done a meatloaf, so here it goes here is the recipe that I have come up with.

    Recipe:

    3# of 80/20 ground beef
    1# sage sausage
    1 cup chopped onion (1 medium onion)
    4 cloves fresh garlic, finely chopped
    2 Tblsp. worcestershire sauce
    1 pkg. lipton soup mix
    1 16oz. can French's french fried onions (crushed)
    2 eggs lightly beaten
    1 cup bread crumbs (I use 4-C bread crumbs)
    ½cup brown sugar (packed)
    1 tsp. ground coriander
    1 tsp. salt
    1 tsp. fresh ground black pepper



    This made a 6# loaf, I may split this into two loaves. What do you think?

    I'd split it into 2 loaves. Sounds like it is going to be some tastey stuff. Let us know how it comes out... don't forget the pics.

    I think I will split it in half, that only means twice the smoke ring......correct[​IMG]

    I am going to get the loaves smokin as soon as my Canadian Bacon comes out. Which is wright around the corner.

    There will be Q-view to follow.[​IMG]

    Yepper defenitly 2 loafs..... one for just you and one for me, let me know when they're done. Thanks for the recipe. That's another reason I like fourm. I must have 4 or 5 recipes for meat loaf. so even though I'm smoking a meat loaf again, it won't be the same.

    Looks great and sounds great.

    Two things I have gotten hooked on, since joining the forum is Meatloaf and ABT's. A zillion ways to do both so you never get bored.

    I think I will try your recipe next.

    Thanks, Skip

    Here is the meatloaf cut in half and reformed. They have been in the smoke for about 1½ hrs.

    This is what we all like...............the Q-view




    While I was at it I decided to try something different with a fattie, instead of just tossing a plain one in the smoker. I mixed 2 Jim dean Maple fatties together, rolled flat and placed some mozzarela cheese inside.

    Here it is ready to roll back into a fattie



    Here is the custom monster fattie, next to a bone stock fattie.




    More Q-view is in the near future.....stay tuned.[​IMG]

    Brian, isn't it funny how big they get after you add just a little bit of extra's. Sometimes it looks like they turn into a skinny meatloaf.

    I love the components, I'm sure it will be a tasty treat for the lucky ones.
     
  17. Brian,

    Love the Q-view! Food looks awesome. Did you rub the fattie or just smoke it plain. Nice job![​IMG]
