Captain Caffeine fired up the smoker yesterday and made meatloaf and ribs. The meatloaf was a little bit of an experiment. He combined veal chorizo and ground beef (1:1 ratio), plus 3/4 cup oatmeal and 1/4 cup crushed saltine crackers, one egg, 2/3 cup milk, and 1-2 tablespoons of ketchup.
It turned out extremely tender and delicious. The chorizo spices were so strong that even cut by the ground beef, the meatloaf had a chorizo kick to it. I would have expected it to be a little drier, because of the veal, but it was actually very juicy. The Captain even poured off some of the oil that pooled on top and the sides.
Any favorite meatloaf recipes you want to share? I absolutely love meatloaf!
