nicholls47 I used Pa’s Black Bull marinade before cold smoking the chops. Then, seasoned them with the garlic/butter Excalibur seasoning and sous vide them at 130 for 2 hrs. Result: juicy and tasty.
Smoked Meat Loaf
Smoked Meat Loaf.
3 lbs mild Italian Sausage (loose, extracted sausage from casings)
3 lbs ground beef-93% lean (lean cause of sausage)
1 large red onion (coarsely chopped)
2 Tbsp garlic powder
2 Tbsp Canadian Steak seasoning I am sure that any steak seasoning you like will work for this.
4 oz ketchup
4 Tbsp Memphis rub (This is a dry rub, any good dry rub you like should work)
1 cup Italian bread crumbs
8 oz Italian 4 cheese mix
4 oz Big Bob Gibson’s Red Sauce (This is BBQ sauce. Use what you like).
Mix all of the ingredients except the BBQ sauce) thoroughly, form into 2 loaves, and place them on a single broiler/cookie type sheet (Pam or such is a good idea here) with holes in it so the smoke can get to the underside of the meatloaf and fat drippings can escape.
Throw the sheets with the loaves into a 210* preheated smoker (2 oz hickory, 2 oz white oak or your choice) until internal temp hits 150*.
Let the meat loaf rest for 20 minutes and coat the top/sides of the meat loaves with Big Bob Gibson’s Red (or sauce of your choice).
Then throw them into a 250* preheated smoker for apprx. 20 minutes to set the outside of the meatloaves. Let them rest for 10 minutes and slice.
Idaho Smokey Printed this one out, I like meatloaf and always looking for new ways to make it.
Idaho Smokey Brother!!! That is a recipe I will definitely try. Thanks for sharing!!!
I usually make meat loaf with a pound of burger and a pound of pork or venison sausage, never tried it with Italian sausage but I will now.
Depending on who is here for dinner I will mix the Italian sausage. Half and half regular and sweet or half and half sweet and hot. Yes I have some kids that don’t like the bite of the hot.
That is a great recipe for meatloaf
Dr_Pain So you just call anyone Brother huh?! No, it’s fine, it’s fine!
Looks great! I do a similar meatloaf using venison or elk, and I layer bacon, hatch green chilis, and cheese on it and roll it up “jelly roll” style…
Dr_Pain Right on Brother!!!
