Traeger Smoked Bacon-Wrapped Meatloaf

Traeger Smoked Bacon-Wrapped Meatloaf

This Traeger Smoked Bacon-Wrapped Meatloaf is not your mommas meatloaf! It's juicy, smoky and there's no ketchup in sight! As with most things on smoker - set aside a couple of hours to make this - but it will be worth it!

  • Turn Traeger to smoke for five min or so - once the smoke dissipates, adjust temp to 225 (if it creeps higher that's fine - mine goes between 225-250 at this setting). 
  • Place beef, sausage, diced onion and green pepper to a large bowl. Mix with your hands - get in there! 
    1 lb ground beef, 1 lb pork sausage, 1/2 onion, 1/2 green pepper
  • Add bbq sauce, eggs, oats, breadcrumbs, Worcestershire and seasonings to the bowl.
    1 cup rolled oats, 1/2 cup breadcrumbs, 2 eggs, 1/4 cup Williamson Bros. BBQ sauce, 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce, 1 tsp dried parsley, 2 tsp salt, 1 tsp garlic powder, 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • Dig in with your hands and mix together and set aside.
  • Form meat into loaf shape and place in a pan a bit larger than the loaf - there will be a decent amount of grease coming out and you want it to have somewhere to go
  • Lay bacon slices over top of meatloaf along and tuck under loaf - I trimmed the edges with scissors and saved them to make for breakfast 
    2/3 lb thick cut bacon
  • Sprinkle top of bacon with Historic BBQ Red 
    3-4 tbsp Historic BBQ Red seasoning
  • Place pan on Traeger for 2 hours at 225 or until the internal temperature is 135 degrees. 
  • Open the Traeger - and using a large spatula - transfer your meatloaf (carefully!) to a grill pan with holes (preferably) - or directly onto the grill. This will get your meatloaf out of the grease! 
  • Baste the outside of the meatloaf with your favorite bbq sauce.
    3-4 tbsp Williamson Bros. BBQ sauce
  • Continue cooking for 30-60 minutes more or until the internal temperature is 165 degrees. 
  • Remove from the smoker, cover with a piece of tin foil and let rest for 15 minutes and serve!
