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.

In the mixing bowl:
Bacon weave with cajun spices, bbq sauce and ketchup
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.
