I'm partial to oak. Oak imparts a flavor similar to hickory without becoming bitter if too much is used.

Yes people do it, and they say it is delicious. I've yet to try it, but I imagine I'd like it.

What a great idea. I make Ol Blue's bacon cheeseburger meatloaf and that would be great smoked!

It's delicious. I use a pound of bacon and more of the veggies.

If you're not using onion soup mix, this is a good place to use those dried minced onions.

Mmmmmmmmmmmm smoked bacon wrapped blue cheese meatloaf sounds fantastic!

My -in-law uses 1 lb GROUND TURKEY, OATS, 1/2 SHREDDED CARROT, 1 1 CAN TOMATOS, 1 CAN TOMATO SAUCE, 1/2 SHREDDED ZUCCINI, GARLIC, ITALIAN SEASONING, SALT, PEPPER, and of course an EGG. I don't want to give away the secret amount, but I will say that if you leave any of these ingredients out, it will not come out moist.

Your loaf NEEDS the TOMATOES and NEEDS the tomato sauce---use most of the 15 oz. can, but leave 2 inches for pouring over the top. The carrots add a bit of moisture, and also add a bit of sweetness. Of course, add a tad of SALT.

The Italian seasoning adds a bit more interest to the flavor, and keeps me wanting MORE!!! The oats are a great way of getting whole grain wholefoods in your diet without any added flavor...it also helps hold the loaf together.

When you put your concoction into a pan, mound it towards the middle of the loaf; this will keep your loaf from being too thin and makes for a nice presentation.
