We are supposed to be in for a real snot storm starting tomorrow so put a meat loaf on the uds today. I used oak and hickory over kingsford and let it burn down after I put it on with a pan to catch drippings it started belching out thick white smoke, not black just white. My wood is a year old so I don't think that is a problem. I wonder if the barometric pressure due the pending storm may have caused it. Anyway I was afraid it was going to get to much smoke and my wife would not eat it, so after less than a half hour I put it in the oven. It had a real nice color and I am sure it picked up some smoke. I just can't remember having such a problem and usually I prefer green wood.
I have never checked a meat loafs internal temp before and have not had any problems, but thought I would check this one out. Is 160 ish, about right for an internal temp?
MY DEFINITION OF AN OPINION.
I can only give credence in facts I believe factual. If those facts are wrong, and are proven as such by facts, I must only give those facts credence, if I believe them as factual.
When the going gets tough, I take more fiber.
