Had to redeem myself to the drum today after the tofu fiasco :shock:. Smoked some meatloaf and a couple of recks of spares. Nothing like smoked meatloaf. Gonna make a great sandwich around midnight tonight :wink:

Hey, Pat -

How did the meat loaf turn out, dry or greasy? When I did one in a loaf pan it was kinda greasy & not much smoke flavor. A friend of mine told me about a loaf basket made by Brinkman (I think). I borrow his, but you can get one at Hawgeye's.

It was pretty moist. I ended up draining the grease for the first hour and then taking them out of the pans for the remainder of the cook. Had a slight smoky flavor but not overpowering. With past meatloaf cooks, it is always smokier the next day!

I've done meatloaf a couple times. I started out in the loaf pans for a couple hours, then turned them out on parchment paper laid over the grates in the cooking chamber. They were delicious!

I use parchment paper too. I tried one recipe that was really moist raw, and didn't know how it would work, but in the end it turned our fine. Brian

It all looks good. When I do my meat loaf I just treat it as a large fattie and put it on the grill. No problems so far. Nice foodies:icon_bigsmil
