Meatloaf… not something to 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 suppose 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.
I should also note that in the picture above I made a double batch. If you make a single batch you would use a smaller pan. Also, if you make a double batch, it will take longer on the smoker or in the oven.
