Default smoked meatloaf w/ bacon lattice

I've got a couple 4 lbs meatloaves(?) on the Bubba Keg right now... I roasted anaheim chiles and grilled vidalia onions, then chopped them up, adding ground chuck, ground sirloin and ground pork, eggs, bread crumbs, italian parsley, basil, oregano, rosemary (all from garden), then stuffed one with cheese, and put a bacon lattice over the top of each of them.

I'm using pecan chunks and Humphrey charcoal, at about 250 degrees.

So here are the photos so far:

looking great so far!

i was at dlm on 48 after work and they were grilling out at the front door. i say "you aren't grilling with gas, are ya?"
they were. i pointed to the pallet of cowboy charcoal and said "you should be using that lump charcoal"
they said "we'd have gone through too much if we were using charcoal."
it still smelled good. they got good beef.

i need to take some eggs down there

I suggested the idea of smoked meatloaf to the boss and she said no. Shs's not a fan of my experiments. But I would love to try that. Anyone want to invite me over for dinner?

I would love to pull up to dlm and see a squad of eggs out there. of course, that cowboy crap isn't worthy of being used in your eggs.

The meatloaf turned out great. I'll have a couple more shots later today. The great thing about it was that one of our friends battles anorexia a bit, which I didn't know before. She had 3 slices of meatloaf, which is more than I've ever seen her eat, and I sent home about a chunk of leftovers.

I think the secret to this one, which was the best I've done to date for meatloaf, was the addition of grilled onions and roasted peppers, and, especially, the really fresh herbs (and not being shy of using them!) The bacon didn't hurt, of course. :)

Why wouldn't you think of wrapping anything in bacon??? That's just wrong! :)

Hey Curt- I started my UDS at 5 this morning, mixed up a meatloaf, gave it a coat of bacon and its almost to temp. I'm off to work in half an hour but we will eat well when I get home. Thanks for the inspiration!! I'd share photos but my camera is touring Tn. right now.

You know what they say... no photos, never happened! :) You can always use a phone camera!

plated shots coming this evening.

Cooking classes are taking a hit right now, with low attendance. We were lucky to not have ours canceled last week; only 9 people on Tuesday, but it doubled by Saturday.

Ha- I like that. I just got home from work about 35 minutes ago and I'm getting close to finishing off about a lb of meatloaf by myself. But no pictures didn't happen!!! LOL. BTW- my meatloaf is rather plain compared to yours. I'll try some of your ideas next time.
