I decided to try this recipe I got another forum and it came out excellent. Usual ingredients for meatloaf, 3/4 lb chuck, 1/4 lb grd suasage, diced peppers, bread crumbs, garlic, sea salt, pepper, cumin, diced onions. I cooked the onions and peppers just a little to soften them up.

Last summer when the wife and I were at a dish outlet I bought 2 bottles of Schaffers B's burger blaster from a guy that was hawking them from a small table in the store. We didn't much care for it on burgers but I knew it was made for meatlof the minute I tasted it, I added about 5 Tbsp to the mix and slathered the outside of it.

I preheated the smoker to 220 and formed the 2 loaves on small shallow baking pans, into the smoker, after 1 hr they start to stiffen up and I cut out the end of the pans and slid them onto the rack covered with frog mats ( these are silicone mats available at yard and pool).

Smoked them for 2 hrs with pecan and total cooking time was 4 hrs to reach internal temp of 165. Oh yeah pics, lets see if they post.

Oh yea, excellent! Of course you know it's cheating to put bacon on top because everything is better with bacon!!
