Meatloaf on the Smoker
The classic meatloaf dish is primarily cooked in the oven, but that doesn’t mean it’s the only cooking option you have! Using a smoker for your meatloaf is a great way to add a smoky flavor to your otherwise traditional dish that’s just as juicy as it would be if you put it in a pan in the oven. Cooking meatloaf on the smoker may take longer than it would if it was cooked in the oven, but the end result is permeated with flavor that’ll have the whole family raving about how great dinner was.
The meatloaf prep work is the exact same as it is if you’re cooking it in an oven: combine your meat, seasonings, breadcrumbs, and eggs together while the smoker is preheating. You should set your smoker to 275°F and once it’s fully heated up and ready to go, you can place the meatloaf on the smoker and leave it there for two hours. After the two hours, add your glaze on top of it and let it smoke for another hour or until you stick an internal thermometer into the thickest portion of your meatloaf and see that the internal temperature is at least 160°F to indicate it’s fully cooked. Then, remove your meatloaf from the smoker and let it rest for 10 to 15 minutes so it can finish cooking and once it’s rested, you’re ready to serve it!
