Smoked meatloaf

Smoked meat and cheese??? Yes please!! Take this family favorite comfort food to the next level by adding this fun twist. The whole family will ask for seconds!



1 lb ground beef

1 lb ground pork*

8 strips bacon cooked and chopped

2 eggs whisked

½ c. Italian panko bread crumbs**

¼ c. milk

1 teaspoon seasoned salt

1 teaspoon garlic powder

¼ c. green pepper chopped and sauteed

¼ c. yellow onion chopped & sauteed

½ teaspoon ground black pepper

2 c. cheddar cheese shredded***

1 c. BBQ Sauce

Pinch of red-pepper flakes (Optional)



Prep. Time: 10 min

Cook Time: 1 hour 30 min Servings: 4



1. Preheat your smoker to 325 degrees F.


2. In a large mixing bowl combine all ingredient by hand, but do not over mix. Shape into a loaf.


3. Place on the smoker and smoke until the internal temperature is 165 degrees F which should take about 1.5 hours.


4. With about 30 minutes left of cooking, brush the meatloaf with your favorite BBQ sauce and cook the remaining ½ hour. You want the BBQ sauce to absorb some smoke and be tacky when its done cooking.


4. Remove from smoker, let sit for 5-10 minutes, slice and serve immediately.




  • Always use a meat thermometer and cook to temp and not to time.  Cooking times for this meatloaf will vary based on thickness.
  • *You may trade out ground beef or pork with ground turkey for a lighter option.
  • **This recipe is easily made gluten free by using GF Panko Bread Crumbs
  • ***Try mixing your cheeses.  A favorite is 1 cup smoked Gouda and 1 cup Monterey Jack. Or roll the cheese into the center of the meatloaf instead of mixing it throughout.
  • Place your meatloaf on a rack so you can place the rack on the smoker rack.  This will allow smoke to circulate around the entire meatloaf without using a pan and there will be less of a chance of it breaking apart when you transfer it off the smoker once it is finished cooking.
