Not Your Mom’s Meat Loaf

Work has been a bit hectic over the past couple of weeks, so I haven’t had a lot of time to smoke, grill or take pictures of any food so I thought I’d go back to the archives.

When I first got my smoker, one of the easier suggestions to try was meatloaf.  So, starting out with three pounds of lean ground beef, a couple of eggs, bread crumbs, milk and assorted seasonings (mainly Montreal Steak Spice, but I’ve been experimenting with some chili peppers and fennel seed as of late) I formed up a  three-pound loaf and set it in the smoker to do its thing.

For a side, I did some ABT’s (atomic buffalo turds), jalapeno stuffed with cheddar, cream cheese and BBQ rub and wrapped in bacon.  They also went into the smoker.

A few hours later, we ended up with a delightfully smoked loaf and awesome jalapeno – not too spicy but with enough kick to remind you that you were eating a pepper.

If you haven’t tried smoked meatloaf, you should if and when you get the opportunity.  I don’t think we will ever go back to oven baked loaves again.
