How about a traditional staple with an interesting twist? This smoked meatloaf is a king of meatloaves in my books. I really love smoked everything, the smoking process brings out so much flavor.
This smoked meatloaf is super easy to cook. If ever you meet someone who is a meatloaf hater, here’s the fastest way to convert them. Come to the dark side, we have smoked meatloaf, that’s all it takes.
It’s not only about being smoked on a grill, it’s about the combo of all the ingredients that make this particular meatloaf special. Have you ever tried toasted peppers in meatloaf? they are absolutely delicious.
I always cook this meatloaf with a mixture of ground meat. Specifically, I use turkey, beef and pork. Occasionally I add chicken.
Instead of traditional ketchup or some kind of ketchup-based sauce, I like making this smoked meatloaf with barbecue sauce. Homemade or store bought, both will be good.
The rest is pretty simple. Just throw everything together in a foil disposable pan and smoke on a grill. Adding wood chips will intensify the smokey flavor. I like cherry, apple or alder chips. If you have a garden and trim your trees occasionally, this is a great way to use cut off old branches.
I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as I do, and happy barbecuing!
