Default Meatloaf in the Snow

I was not going to let 8" of snow in Longmont stop me from cooking outside. I picked up a couple 1.25 lb pre seasoned meatloafs from the meat counter at King Soopers (aka Kroger). Poked a few holes in the bottom of the foil pans.

I moved the Black SS Performer out back and replaced it with the '95 Blue and '00 Burgundy SS Performers.

I fired up the Blue Performer and filled the char baskets. Added a little foil pack of Weber hickory chips (found these in the 1995 Blue charcoal). Also used a foil pan between the char baskets to catch the drippings.

I let the Weber run wide open since it was cold outside. About 1.5 - 2.0 hrs later, I pulled the cooked metaloafs. Temp was 180-190 which was higher than my target temp of 170. I did not want any blowing snow to mess up the Maverick 732.

A nice smoke ring on top of the meatloaf.

It had a good flavor which was not too smokey. I know from experience that it is very easy to oversmoke a meatloaf.
