So part of the reason I love smoking so much is I get to take ordinary recipes and just smoke them instead. Todayís case in point was my first try at smoked meatloaf. Having never had it, but seeing you all cook it had me itching to try it. To say it was amazing was an understatement. It took moms meatloaf to a whole other level and made an already rich home meal even richer.

All I did was literally take moms meatloaf recipe and smoke it instead of pop it in the oven. Our family recipe, which is really just a list of ingredients, was a couple pounds of beef, a little pork sausage, couple small cans of tomato sauce, about a cup of old fashioned oatmeal, then salt, pepper, parsley, and dried minced onion. Grandpa always said that his best measuring cup was his eyes and his hand, and itís still how we cook a lot today.

Also on the menu was some chuck roast burnt ends as a first try, some beans that cooked below the chuck roast to catch the drippings, some grilled cabbage and grilled chicken strips for the lady. Weíve been battling some unknown sickness for a month and are trying to find answers still. The fact that she requested some grilled chicken was a step in the right direction and helped us both with our meal prep before work fired up again. All in all, a great cook! Hope you all have been having fun out there too!

Thanks everyone! Really happy with how this cook turned out. Iíve been having a ton of fun with the Hunsaker during my days off lately.

It was two pounds of beef for each loaf. I cooked at 350į I didnít really time it, but I want to say it was right about an hour and a half.

Yeah it was all really rich due to the smoke. I couldnít eat near as much as I usually do. Smoked meatloaf is definitely itís own beast.
