Look at how good I can freehand my meatloaf...

Just kiddin'...I always use a loaf pan to form them up. This time, I didn't follow a recipe for the meatloaf...just kinda threw some stuff in there to change it up some. It had some ground beef, ground pork, crushed garlic and butter croutons, minced mushrooms, minced onion, worcestershire and a good amount of BBQ rub. Maybe something else in the mix, but that's all I recall.

Smoked the meatloaf up with some Pecan and Alder Woods. Then in a CI skillet, I threw together a homemade Scalloped Potato recipe. First, you take your food processor and thinly slice up 4 cups worth of petite red potatoes. You then place 1/3 of the potatoes in your CI skillet. Then you combine some flour and BBQ rub and sprinkle some of that on top of the potatoes you just put in the skillet. Then you layer on another 1/3 of the potatoes. Then you sprinkle more of your flour/rub mixture on top of that. Then add your last layer of potatoes and sprinkle a little more of the flour/rub mixture. Then dot all of that with some butter. Should look like this at that point:

Then you take about 2 cups of screaming hot milk and add that on top.

Then you cover the skillet with some foil and bake it for about 45 minutes at 375 deg f. You can do this either in the oven or on the BGE. It's foiled initially, so it won't matter.

While I had the Scalloped Potatoes in the oven, I finished smoking up the Meatloaf. I glazed it 10 minutes before taking it off the Egg.

It was perfect timing. The 45 minute mark on the potatoes was at the exact time I took the meatloaf off the Egg. I unfoiled and finished the Scalloped Potatoes on the Egg to add a nice kiss of smoke from the Pecan and Alder. I added a good amount of Sharp Cheddar and some Bread Crumbs as well. Takes about 15 or 20 minutes unfoiled to finish them.

Pretty good dinner, if I may say so myself... We also had some Asparagus on the side.

Happy Weekend, everybody!
