Smoked meatloaf

Have any of you ever tried smoking a meatloaf? DH is thinking about trying one next time he fires up the smoker.

I recently saw one here on somebody's smoker..... within the last week.
Also, back when Ask a Butcher used to post, he had a smoked meatloaf thread. You might get some info from that.

That's a great pic you have there.

I do that all the time, but at a higher temperature than true smoking. I use a large kettle grill and bank the coals on one side and put the meatloaf on the other. Add some woodchips and close the lid. A 4lb meatloaf is done in about 1 1/2 hours. Itís like using the grill as an oven with smoke. It is fantastic. I havenít tried actually smoking one low and slow on the smoker yet.

I've smoked a meatloaf both ways; using a Weber just like redgriller did (see above), and I've also done them low 'n slow on a firebox type smoker. I actually like using the high heat Weber-method best because it always creates a fabulous outer crust that slow cooking hasn't been able to produce

I make my meatloaf in a pressure cooker. One time I forgot to turn down the heat and nearly burnt the meatloaf.
The surprise effect was it attained a wonderful smoked flavour and very tasty, with inside still moist and juicy. It was the best meatloaf we ever had but since I nearly killed the pressure cooker, I don't think I should try again...
