Meatloaf… not something too many people get excited about. So what is it about this meatloaf that makes it so special? Well, for starters it’s gluten-free. Second, it’s smoked. When you think of smoked food you probably picture ribs or chicken…but, not meatloaf.
The first time we cooked this meatloaf on a smoker, we were amazed by the flavor!

Meatloaf isn’t supposed to taste this good!
It’s so easy to make.
- Mix all ingredients in a bowl
- Spread into a cake pan
- Top with BBQ Sauce (This is the BBQ sauce that my family uses for everything!!!!)
- Put on the smoker at 200 degrees for an hour or until internal temp is 165 degrees (My husband uses a combination of charcoal and cherry or hickory wood)
Side note–I always make this with mashed potatoes! Meatloaf and potatoes are sooooooooooo good!!
This recipe calls for 1 & 1/2 pounds of ground beef. I use 1 pound of ground beef and 1/2 pound of ground sausage.
In order to make this gluten-free I used organic certified gluten-free oatmeal. You could also use gluten-free bread crumbs. If you are not gluten-free you can use regular oatmeal or bread crumbs.
If you do not have a smoker, you can still make this recipe in the oven…it will just taste like regular meatloaf.
I garnished mine with green onions. My husband tells me I like green onions more than the average person, so that is optional.
NOTE: I usually make a double batch so if you make a double batch please note that it takes longer to cook on the smoker or in the oven. Also, If you make a single batch be sure to use a smaller pan.
