  • 2 Lbs. Ground Beef
  • 1/4 Cup Bread Crumbs
  • 1/4 Cup French Fried Onions
  • 1 Tbsp Kosher Salt
  • 1 tsp Garlic Powder
  • 2 tsp Chili Powder
  • 1 tsp Paprika
  • 1 tsp Mustard Powder
  • 1 Tbsp Worcestershire Sauce
  • 1/2 tsp Crushed Red Pepper Flakes
  • 1 tsp Black Pepper
  • 1 Egg
  • 1/4 Cup BBQ Sauce


  • Preheat your smoker to 250 degrees. Combine all of the ingredients except for the BBQ sauce. Mix well, and form into 2 loaves. Place the loaves on the grate of the smoker, and cook until they reach an internal temperature of about 120 degrees F.
  • Use a basting brush to glaze each loaf with BBQ sauce. Let the loaves smoke until they reach an internal temperature of 160 degrees F. If you want, you can brush the loaves with BBQ sauce once more when they hit about 140 degrees F.
  • When they are done, let the loaves rest uncovered on a cutting board for 5-10 mins. Slice, and enjoy. This meatloaf goes great with mashed potatoes. Enjoy!
    Note: Go with any BBQ sauce you like, but any kind of honey BBQ sauce is best.
