Cry with me Friends. My Lakers suffered a humiliating defeat in the playoffs. I needed a comfort food. So I turned to that old classic meatloaf. However, this one be done with ground pork rather than beef. Price was pretty good at about $2 per pound, as you can see on the packaging here (I actually had two pounds total):

Image

I just took your classic recipe and added some veggies like chopped red bell pepper, celery, and onion. I opted to smoke it this time with hickory via side fire box, rather than in the main chamber.

Well, I'm sure ready to plate this smoky beast now. Of coarse comfort loaf requires the traditional comfort sides-- mashed taters and peas and carrots.

And we must not forget the all important gravy! Oh, I felt I could have eaten the whole loaf, it was so tasty. :D

As good as the meatloaf looks I believe I could make a meal out of the potatoes and gravy alone! :wink:

Once again I'm glad I had lunch before I read this post - otherwise I'd have been too darn hungry and would have spent too much on lunch. :twisted:

Excellent job, beercuer - smoked meatloaf is comfort food enough but when you add the gravy and sides it's unbeatable.
Unlike propane, you'll never wake up scorched and naked in another county because you mishandled a bag of briquettes.

Many thanks, Guys. :D

Brad-- Glad you liked the taters too. We have a store here called "Smart & Final" which we affectionately call "Fart & Smile," and somehow they supply the best ones in town-- simply the best.

Griff-- I don't find much consolation in that, brother, even though you're right. I don't know what kind of wild hair got up management's behind, but I knew the writing was on the wall ever since they dumped Lamar Odom.

CBG and Sroach-- I was so delighted the first time I tried gravy after going through all the other condiments from catsup to BBQ to pizza sauce. Then I decided to customize the dressing with the type of loaf. For example, I have a German style loaf that includes rye bread crumbs, saurkraut, caraway seeds, and beef knockwurst that luvs to be bathed in mustard. :D

Really? Lamar didn't do anything for the Mavs. The fans (me included) were happy to see him go.

Sure won't argue with you about Odom's performance with the Mavs. But it was quite the different story with the Lakers. He was the essential glue of the team, the one who made Gasol perform at his best, and was rebounding champion nothing since the likes of Rodman. He had it all, could do anything, (except glory hog).

OK - now that one needs an explanation, or at least a link to the original thread it was on.... :twisted:
