      Mix together carrots, celery, mushrooms and onions in a bowl and drizzle with olive oil. Cover bowl with plastic wrap and microwave for about 2 minutes to soften vegetables.
    • 3

      Let vegetables cool then mix them in a large bowl with ground beef, garlic, thyme, egg, bacon, Worcestershire sauce, salt, pepper, breadcrumbs and tomato soup.
    • 4

      Form the mixture into a loaf and place on a wire rack over a foil-lined baking sheet.
    • 5

      Make your bacon weave using the bacon, weaving it on a large piece of parchment paper.
    • 6

      Gently flip and lay the weave on top of the meatloaf so that the parchment is on top. Peel off the parchment paper.
    • 7

      Cook the meatloaf on the grill for 45 minutes. Remove the meatloaf from grill and increase temperature to 325˚F. Allow Traeger to preheat, lid closed for 10 minutes.
