Meatloaf



Another 5+ lb meatloaf emerges from the old fridge smoker. Turned out fantastic.

Took about 4 1/2 hrs at 240

1 green pepper diced

1 large onion diced

1 heaping spoon of wet minced garlic

1 tsp salt

1/2 tsp pepper

1 cup shredded cheddar cheese

6 oz sweet chili sauce (I used panda king)

*would use ketchup but wife won’t do ketchup*

2 eggs (beaten)

3/4 cup bread crumbs

5 splashes Worcester Sauce

2 lbs 90% hamburger

2 lbs pork sausage (breakfast)

1 lb bacon

1-2 cups brown sugar

Mix all (except for meat & brown sugar) together by hand in a really big pan or bowl.

Add hamburger & pork sausage and mix well by hand.

Form into big loaf and cover the loaf with bacon.

Put stainless smoker rack on top of big bowl and flip bowl over so the loaf lands bacon side down on your rack.

Finish forming & putting bacon on the (now) top of loaf.

Use toothpicks to secure bacon to top and sides.

Drizzle 1-2 cups brown sugar on top of bacon. No mop or spraying required.

Set this rack on top of an old cake pan to keep it out of the grease and to catch the droppings. Also to keep from making a big mess in the smoker.

Smoke for about 4 1/2 hrs at 240 (IT 165f)

Pull out of smoker and rest at room temp while making sides, before slicing.

Have never gotten around to smoking a meat loaf. After seeing yours I need to get around to doing so.

You won’t regret it! I can’t imagine making a meatloaf and not smoking it now. The best part is how easy it smokes & how fast it disappears. I have two pieces left (about 1 lb). My son ate two slices at supper and had another huge piece later last night.
