Smoked Meatloaf!

Post by Dargo » December 28th, 2020, 9:35 pm

Finally made my first smoked meatloaf.
I will never make it any other way.

Took me a while to convince my wife to try it but she liked it.

This! And don't be afraid to wap itnin bacon. Last one I did was indirect over live fire. My grate on my firepit fits a 22" weber kettle lid perfectly, like the design did that on purpose. Image

Good eye,
I have the block and I love the set up. I have used all 4 probes with meat in 2 smokers and all worked great.

Graphs the cook like most of the wifi temp probes out there.

I would recommend these to anyone willing to splurge. Even if I have 1 chicken one I put in 2 probes to make sure all is good.

No cheese. Just chopped up onions and garlic. I will try the cheese at some point.

I signed up as an early investor on Kickstarter and got the block and the single probe but gave them away as a gift. Only had my BGE then and was using a Flameboss 300 w/ fan controller. Kind of regret giving it away. My InkBird is flakey as $hit. Been looking at the Fireboard and the Thermoworks Signals. Might have to put the Heater back on the list. Anything about it bug you? Like battery life or anything?

Battery life has been great. I had a 22 hour pulled pork cook and they did not run out of power.

Only thing that happened to me was after a cook I did not plug it in to charge and the AAs ran out. 2 weeks later for my next cook I could not use them. Lesson learned to always keep plugged in.


Another thing to keep in mind, if you wrap in aluminum foil you will need to have the probe sticking out. The foil will block the bluetooth signal.

These are all the “issues” I have had, which really are not issues.

Meatloaf looks great dargo. Love the idea of wireless probes. The only advantage of a controller with a fan, especially on a GF is that if you call for a temp, the fan blows more or less to keep the heat where you ask for it to be. If someone comes out with a wireless probe with a fan that would be the cats meow! Heck, maybe there is one out there already, but I haven't seen it..
Going to have to try meatloaf now some day.. Looks so good!
Nice work!

It wasnt high tech but I had a temp contolled fan for my weber WSMs. Worked so great it made the process boring! Wife asked what was wrong during a long cook and I said boredom - i know the temps correct so I dont need to check it. Having said that it made over night cooks a dream!!
