Meatloaf Extravaganza

Discussion in 'Beef' started by mikendonna, Sep 11, 2011.

  1. I bought my husband a smoker for his birthday and I think I'm enjoying using it just as much as he is. I decided to make meatloaf .... I mean A LOT of dang meatloaf. My intentions are to have a great dinner tonight, but also package most of it with the foodsaver and freeze it so we have easy lunches and weeknight dinners.

    Started out with 5 lbs of ground beef, 1 lb of spicy sausage, 1lb of regular sausage and 1lb of ground turkey and 4lbs of bacon. Added diced onions, garlic and green pepper, eggs and spices and I was able to make four 2 lb Bacon Wrapped Meatloaves.

    Check it out:

    In the mixing bowl:

    We agreed that next time it need more ketchup than this:

    These three were done the same way ... the 4th one was stuffed with cheese:

    We LOVE this smoker:

    Wonderful meatloaf!! 2 of them had to stay in a touch longer to crisp up the bacon, but these these  were perfect!

    Had them with creamed spinach and mashed cauliflower. Great way to start football season right.

    The meatloaves look great and I think it's cool you caught the Smoking Bug! I wish my wife would join me on a smoke but she just says, "I married a Chef and have 2 Daughter's in Culinary school! Why would I EVER go in the kitchen, or sit in the sun all day by the Smoker?" There's Logic staring you in the face![​IMG]...JJ
