What you will need.
2 pounds ground chuck
1 pound ground pork
2 eggs slightly beaten
1 cup of fresh bread crumbs.
a pan with several holes in it.
a hand full of wood chips for smoke.
Step 1: Mix Ingredients
Mix with hands until everything is well combined and form a ball in the bowl.
To make the bread crumb place 2-3 slices of bread in a food processor and blend until they are crumbs.
Step 2: Post Mixing
Step 3: Smoking the Loaf
You want your smoker or grill between 300 and 350 degrees.
Remove meatloaf from fridge. Remove foil and plastic wrap. Sprinkle the top with kosher salt and black pepper. You can also apply your favorite bbq rub.
Place meatloaf in pan on the smoker. Add 1 hand full of wood chips or a few thumb sized chunks of wood to the coals. It is very easy to over smoke this dish. Ground meat absorbs smoke much easier that whole meats so a little goes a very long way.
Close lid and let it rip for at least an hour before you check the internal temp.
Tip: Make sure the grease is draining away from the meat. If the loaf is sitting in grease then the bottom of the meatloaf will be very soggy. If you use something with small holes run your bbq tongs across the holes to unclog them.
Step 4: Time to Eat
Place meatloaf on cutting board and loosely tent with foil. Let is rest for 10 minutes.
Slice and serve. Meatloaf goes great with other comfort foods like mashed potatoes and fresh steamed green beans
This recipe makes enough for at least 6 adults. You can change the quantity of the ingredients to make a smaller loaf but why would you when the left overs make awesome sandwiches.
