Now that you have the taste for smoked meatloaf, make some from scratch, and smoke them with no pans. The smoke hits them on every side.

I like a 50-50 mix of ground chuck and ground pork. A couple eggs, some bread crumbs, and your favorite herbs and spices -- golden. Let them set up in the fridge for a few hours to firm up.

It's also cheaper, but looking at your setup, I'm guessing money is not an issue. So, the reason to make your meatloafs from scratch is that it is a lot more fun, if you love to cook, and it tastes awesome.

No offense intended. I go the pre-made route from time-to-time when I cook. We don't always have time to go scratch. But, if you have some time, a scratch-made smoked meatloaf is farking awesome. It is one of my favorite comfort foods. That and some mashed potatoes can erase my worst day at work.

I have come to the conclusion that the fatty is simply another version of a meatloaf. My wife thinks that my fatties are two dense and need lightening up such as adding breadcrumbs as in some meatloaves. If you had unpacked the meatloaves and rolled them in plastic wrap for a period I would image then cooked it would improve the flavour as 1) you can smoke all around and 2) Rub or dress all over!!
Has this any legs????

I won't/can't answer for all obviously, but IMO the "meatloaf" is basically ground beef..... A lot of folks add stuff to them, including me (breadcrumbs, eggs, cracker crumbs, panko, veggies, etc.) and go from that point (oven, smoker or BBQ) with the later 2 preferred for us...... IMO A Fatty is basically ground pork sausage, which is either smoked or BBQ'd alone, or is stuffed with good stuff you like (mushrooms, cooked bacon, ham, eggs, cheese, olives, onions, peppers, etc. but there are no rules in stuffing one, beside food safety) and sometimes bacon wrapped on then smoked or grilled to the correct temperature..... IMO, they are a blank canvas as long as proper cooking temps are followed.

You are expressing the situation far better than me. Whether you are using pork or beef or for that matter turkey chicken or rabbit you have a blank canvas. I believe my first attempt at cooking 3 fatties was just gathering experience. My wife has raised a legitimate issue that a fatty may be dense but meatloaves are better balanced. Let us move on and experiment. It is all fun!

Nice looking loaves! More fortitude than I neighbor, barely shoveled the walks and cheated putting the chops in the oven.

Now you have me craving meatloaf. It's been a while since I have made meatloaf. I'm practically drooling here.

By the way, when I opened the thread, I got a little worried that it would be this guy making snow angels or something...
