Meatloaf

Good old British Beef, you can't beat it! Of course Brisket is the American BBQ favorite but recipes for any cut are welcome here.

Ingredients
1 egg
1 pound onions diced
5 tablespoons butter
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
2 pounds miced beef
2 cups fresh breadcrumbs
approx. 20 slices of bacon

Cook the onions gently sprinkled with the salt, for about 20 to 25 minutes or until the onions are golden.

Remove to a bowl to cool.

Put the Worcestershire sauce and minced beef into a bowl, and when the onion mixture is not hot to the touch, add to the bowl and work everything together with your hands.

Add the egg and mix again before finally adding the breadcrumbs.

Shape the mix and pat into a solid loaf shape.

Cover the meatloaf with slices of bacon, tucking the bacon ends underneath the meatloaf.

For this i've used some American style bacon that i've seen in the supermarket recently as i'm hoping it'll crisp up more than regular english bacon.

Image

Finally it's off to the smoker, i'm using hickory and cooking at 250f.

Image

After about 3hrs you'll end up with one of these.

I'm not a meatloaf fan to be honest but I'd give that a try!

I'd agree with that, it's not tough when cooked a low heat anf you still get a bit of crispy goodness without overcooking your main bit of meat.

I didn't realise that you could get it in Booker, i got it from Sainsburys but i've got a Booker card now so i'll make sure i look out for it when i'm there.
