Default When you want something different....

I want to smoke something tomorrow, but I'm not in the mood for the classics. I want something that qualifies as comfort food. I'm thinking of a meatloaf made from ground beef and ground pork. But, I'm not committed.

I just want to make something other than the traditional brisket, butt or ribs.

I am open to suggestions, as long as I can get it by tomorrow.

Nice turkey breast smoked then fire up the Egg and grill some hobo potatoes with a side of Aspragrus. Or, maybe take a pork loin, jelly roll it and stuff it with your favorate filling and tie it up and smoke that.

smoke up that meat loaf, throw on some hard boiled eggs (still in the shell) take the eggs after they are cooled and make a potato salad with it.
Til next time, chew carefully, and dont let your meat loaf!

Look up Moose's posts - he's always doing interesting stuff. If you're feeling really adventurous, check out Capazzoli's posts. Obviously, there are a lot of other folks doing interesting things as well, these are just the first 2 that came to mind.

One of my neighbors is a really nice woman who works for a major evangelist, with lots of books and a radio show. She loves my BBQ, and she is a hoot to talk to, even though we are way different.

I am thinking of doing a meat loaf cook with her. I think she would enjoy an afternoon of cooking, just as much as I do.

I love to think of food as a way to bring people of varied backgrounds together. And, she really is a genuinely nice person.

So, beef and pork meatloaf is in first place.

As of right now, a spatchcocked chicken is in second place.

I have smoked several meatloafs.
I Googled and found a recipe that uses small pieces of celery and carrots along with chopped onions ect.
Gotta say they turned out ..........outstanding was my wife's words.
Recipe said the veggies should be sauteed, I said not, loved the slight crunch of the raw veggies for texture.
Throw on some sausage links as snacks for the cook or something else you enjoy.
Let us know what you cooked but meat smoked is the bomb in our family.
Heck do a plain fatty or some moinks while your doing the loafs.
Ya gotta have some snacks to feed the cooks.
A can of Spam sliced, smoked and glazed w/bbq sauce is also a great snack.
