Ground Turkey Meatloaf

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I've been wanting a smoked meatloaf for a while. We have been using a lot of ground turkey lately so I decided to substitute it for ground beef in my favorite meatloaf recipe. After mixing it up, I formed the loaf on my pizza grilling pan. I made up the Cooking Sauce and since the meatloaf was not in a dish I injected it into numerous places around the loaf. I smoked it with cherry wood at 250-275 degrees until the internal temperature reached 170 degrees. Total cooking time was only 1 hour 25 minutes. Wow! The meatloaf was nice and moist with a nice smoke ring. The cherry smoke really went well with the turkey. This is my favorite meatloaf recipe.
WVSmokeMan's Favorite Meatloaf
2 lb ground beef 2 slices bread, crumbled
1 finely chopped onion 1 whole egg
1 1/2 Tsp. salt 1/2 Tsp. black pepper
1/2 cup ketchup 1 Tbsp. Worcestershire Sauce
2 Tbsp. chopped green peppers
Combine all ingredients together and make into a loaf.
Cooking Sauce
1/2 cup water 2 Tbsp. vinegar
3 Tbsp. brown sugar 1 Tbsp. yellow mustard
2 Tbsp. Worcestershire Sauce 1/4 cup ketchup
Mix all cooking sauce ingredients together and pour over loaf. Bake at 350 degrees F for 75 minutes, basting occasionally. Remove loaf from pan immediately before the sauce cools around it.

I never made meatloaf out of Turkey burger. I threatened to grind up some turkeys a while back but never did. I'll have to give it a shot. Looks tasty! Recipe looks good to! Thanks for posting!

You've just inspired me ... I have a recipe for 'turkey chipotle chile' that would be great in the smoker.

Anyone interested in the recipe ... just let me know!
