My husband LOVES to smoke stuff. He doesn’t care what….anything. He’s tried to convince me to bake a cake for him to smoke…….I really haven’t felt the need to mesquite smoke chocolate cake though…..
We decided to smoke a meatloaf for some friends, they results were AMAZING!
So here is the recipe….This could be used for the oven as well…..Which is how I use to do it, but that way is now the way of the past.
This recipe feeds 6-8.
First take 2 pounds of ground beef and 1 pound of sausage and put in a bowl, add 3/4 cup of bread crumbs or crushed tortilla chips. (if you use tortilla chips cut back on the salt later on)
Now is a separate bowl combine:
- 1 Tablespoon of Worcestershire
- 1 Teaspoon of Soy sauce
- 1 Tablespoon of Black Pepper
- 1 Teaspoon of Oregano
- 1 Teaspoon of Basil
- 1 Teaspoon of Salt (1/2 teaspoon if used salted chips for the breadcrumbs)
- 1 Tablespoon of Minced Garlic
- 1/2 Tablespoon of Mustard
- 1/3 cup of finely diced Onion
- 4 Eggs
Pour this mixture into the meat, mix well.
Now put in loaf pan and put into fridge for about 30 minutes to help it take shape.
Take out the pan and flip into a pan that will catch the grease, and that can go in a smoker.
I used a 13×9 Cake pan. Now put in the heated smoker that is set at 225 for about three hours. It will be done when it reaches 165 on the inside. (To bake in oven 375, 45-50 mins)
Remove from grease filled pan and put on clean cookie sheet or cutting board to cut.
Now just cut and serve, and be prepared to be amazed….
