Smoked Meat Loaf

Making these into individual loaves increases smoke penetration.  This is great when smoked and later warmed in a microwave. 

Ingredients:

1 pound ground pork and 2 pounds ground beef
1 slice white bread, crust removed
1/4 cup milk
2 eggs, beaten
3/4 cup chopped onion
1 teaspoon beef bouillon
1/4 cup chopped parsley
1/2 cup finely chopped celery
1/4 teaspoon poultry seasoning
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon salt

Tear or crumble the bread and add to the milk.  Combine the remaining ingredients, then add the milk mixture and mix well.  Shape into 6 loaves.  Put loaves on aluminum trays or pieces of foil and place on smoker grid to water-smoke. 

Charcoal:  Use 5 pounds charcoal, 3 quarts hot water, 2 wood sticks and smoke 1 ½ - 2 hours.

Electric:  Use 2 quarts hot water, 2 wood sticks and smoke 1 ½ - 2 hours.

Serves 6 – 8
