Midwest Meatloaf

Adapted from a recipe by Cathy Lowe


Serves:4 servings




* 2 pounds ground beef

* 1 small onion, finely chopped

* 1/2 red bell pepper, chopped

* 2 cloves garlic, minced

* 1 cup fresh bread crumbs

* 2 eggs, lightly beaten

* Salt

* Pepper

* 2 teaspoon chili powder, optional

* 3/4 cup ketchup or tomato sauce

* 2 tablespoon mustard

* 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley or 1 TBS dried

* 4 slices bacon (optional)




Preheat smoker to 275 degrees. Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and mix well. Gently mound the meat mixture into a loaf and place on a perforated cooking sheet. Smoke until an IT of 160 deg.


Note: I placed a sheet of foil the size of the loaf under it.
