    Nothing big over the weekend (my refs are working the state soccer tournament all 3 days) but I'm fixing a big batch of Tim Farmer's venison stroganoff this evening to help my refs load up on carbs & protein before they hit the fields.

    My daughter has plans with her boyfriend , so pretty much just me and my better half this weekend .

    Plan on just grilling some burgers & brauts on Monday. Wife is going to make some tater salad and whatever other sides she decides on......but overall just keeping it simple and relaxing.

    Will say I've been wanting to do a smoked meatloaf. May try that out on Saturday if nothing comes up.

    Dude, I LOVE meatloaf. Please make this and let me know how it comes out.

    I have given my wife instructions to pull the butt off at 195 degrees and wrap it. We will be having it for dinner on Sunday at Rough River. 195 is correct right?

    I'm fishin' and the kids are playing ball so it'll be simple. After the tournament it'll be smokeys and pork chops on the grill, my baked beans have been requested along with jap poppers, then we'll unwind around the fire and do marshmallows while the frogs and crickets holler.

    195-200 ish.... internal temp is correct for done. But wrapping I wrap at certain color not per say a certain temp but is around 145-155.

    Come on down .... LOL.

    I always fix too much anyway. Also have a bottle of apple pie in the cabinet that the seal hasn't been broke on . We may have to test it to make sure it hasn't gone bad. But .. that may make you a little late getting to your next get-together .


    Will do ..... had several people tell me their really good smoked. Just never done one but we like meatloaf... so can't turn out all that bad.

    We use my dad's recipe where we mix 1/2 lb mild pork sausage in with 2 lbs ground beef , fresh chopped bell and onion and a few other ingredients. End result you don't really taste the the sausage but it really makes for a moist meatloaf and great taste . Honestly one of things that just gets better each day as we make sandwiches with the leftovers .

    Putting some smoke and slow cook time in the smoker seems like a good combination. Just got to figure what wood I want to use .

    As for pulling the butt.... I do mine around 195.

    BBQ Chicken and grilled veggies and fruit.... zucchini, bell peppers, onions, mushrooms, pineapple rings and ranch corn on the cob. Did you all see that Lowe's and Home Depot both have Kingsford 20lb 2-pack for $9.99?

    185 is when i would wrap if i was wrapping, and let rest fat side up for atleast one hour, 2 if u have the time. After it rests, unwrap in a pan and Wait about 45min before u pull it. When u unwrap it, some juice will run out. U dont want to lose that liquid.
