Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 3 hours
Total Time: 3 hours, 15 minutes
Yield: Serves 6 to 8
- 1 1/2 pounds ground beef (80/20 chuck works best)
- 1/2 pound ground pork
- 3 slices white bread, crumbled
- 1/2 cup ketchup
- 1/4 cup whole milk
- 1/2 medium onion, finely chopped
- 1 egg
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- salt and pepper to taste
Combine milk and bread. Set aside for about 10 minutes, stirring a couple of times. Add remaining ingredients and combine until everything is even mixed. Try not to over mix so that the ground meats retain their texture.
Form the mixture into a loaf shape on a smoker safe pan or parchment paper. Place on heated smoker with a small amount of mild wood. Smoke the meatloaf until the internal temperature passed 165 degrees F. Remove the meatloaf from the grill when done, cover and allow to rest for 5 to 10 minutes before carving and serving.
