Serving Meatloaf to your family for dinner gets a bad rap because most meatloaf recipes are dry, lack flavor or are just plain boring…
For a meatloaf recipe that is new, delicious and a little unexpected, fire up your smoker and serve a dinner your family will love.
Here is the exact recipe for Smoked BBQ Meatloaf
- 2lbs Ground Chuck (I used the 80-20)
- 1lb Ground Pork
- 8oz Bread Crumbs
- 2 Eggs
- ¼ cup Half and Half
- ½ Red Bell Pepper
- 5-6 Green Onions
- 4 Cloves of Garlic
- 1 Rib of Celery
- 1 TBS Moore’s Original Marinade
- 2 TBS BBQ Rub
- Salt & Pepper to taste
- 2 Aluminum Loaf Pans
- Plastic Wrap
First dice the vegetables then work it in with the ground beef, pork and seasonings. Then crack the two eggs and lightly beat them in a small bowl. Add the half and half to the eggs and whisk with a fork and add it to your mixture.
Work these ingredients by hand into the meat and vegetables until everything is combined and divide your meatloaf in half.
Bring your smoker to 275 degrees to smoke you barbecue meatloaf. Meatloaf can fall apart pretty easy due to moving it around too much, but to keep this from happening, I place them on a cooling rack.
Spray the rack with cooking spray to keep the meatloaf from sticking and place it over a foil lined baking sheet.
Place the baking sheet, pork rack, and meatloaf directly on the cooking grate in the smoker. It will take approximately 2 hours at 275 degrees to get the meatloaf to an internal of 160. After 2 hours, brush on your favorite barbecue sauce on the top and sides of the meatloaf and allow it to glaze on the smoker for 15 minutes.
Once your barbecue sauce has set, remove your meatloaf from the smoker and allow it to rest at room temperature – uncovered – for around 10 minutes.
All that’s left to do at that point is slice, serve and listen to the “ooohs” and “aaaahs” coming from your happy family!
