Like Jeff said in his newsletter this month, everyone has their own favorite meatloaf recipe.
I don't. In fact, I've probably never made a meatloaf the same way twice.
For Mothers day, here's what I made LOML.
Started with Fire Roasted Jalapenos, Green Chilis and some chopped onion,
Which I sauteed with 3 strips of Bacon (cut up) until the bacon was crisp and the onions were caramelized
Added this to 2-1/2lbs ground beef (75/25), 2 eggs, breadcrumbs, yellow mustard, and barbecue sauce.
Then formed a loaf and put it on a fine grate.
Added a pan underneath to catch the drippings, Brushed on more BBQ sauce for the glaze, then on to the smoker for about 4 hours.
Took it off when IT reached 155°,
and let it rest for about 20 minutes while I made some mashed potatoes and grilled some corn on the cob.
Served with a side of extra BBQ sauce, which was entirely unnecessary as the Meatloaf was moist and very flavorful.
