Chef Chad White's Smoked Bacon-Wrapped Meatloaf



  1. In a large bowl, mix all the ingredients together well (except bacon, mustard and Honey Habanero rub). Remove from bowl and form into a 4″ x 10″ loaf.
  2. Rub the outside of loaf with the yellow mustard.
  3. Layer all the bacon on a sheet tray stretched out. Overlap each piece by 1/4”. Place loaf on the sheet of bacon and fold the bacon slices over to tightly wrap the meatloaf. You can massage ends to make bacon stick together. 
  4. Carefully season all sides of the bacon-wrapped loaf with Spiceology Honey Habanero spice rub.
  5. Place meatloaf with bacon-seam side down on grill or oven. Smoke or bake for 1 hour at 325F or until internal temperature reaches 155F. 
  6. Pull from smoker or oven and let rest for 15-20 minutes before slicing. Serve & enjoy!
  • When using a probe or thermometer, check temperature in the same hole rather than testing is multiple spots, which would cause the juices to run out.
  • If you want more smoke flavor, set the temp to 250F and smoke for approximately 2 hours (rather than 1 hr at 325F).
