Smoked Mini Cheddar Meatloaves on the Big Green Egg is a deliciously easy cook to make. It has been a family favorite around my house for many years. It’s an excellent re-invented meatloaf that you must put on your list of things to try.

One item that I highly recommend picking up as a Big Green Egg accessory, if you don’t already have one, is a cast iron skillet. It does an excellent job evenly cooking anything you throw in it and it is very versatile. This 12″ skillet seems to be the perfect size for many of my favorite recipes like Smoked Mac and Cheese, Blackened Mahi Mahi, Blackened Shrimp

I have a bachelor's degree in construction engineering. When I’m not constructing or remodeling X-Ray Rooms, Cardiovascular Labs, and Pharmacies...I’m at home with my wife, two daughters and a dog. Outside of family, I love grilling and barbequing on my Big Green Egg and working on projects around the house.
