    Steps

    • 1

      Place ground beef in a large mixing bowl; set aside. Dice the bacon slices and cook in a skillet until lightly browned. Remove bacon with slotted spoon and set aside.
    • 2

      Remove all but 2 tablespoons of bacon fat from skillet. Add the onion, garlic and pepper and saute until onion is translucent.
    • 3

      Add to the ground beef along with the bread crumbs, eggs, Traeger Asian BBQ Rub, milk, Worcestershire sauce, 1/2 cup chopped cilantro and 1/3 cup Traeger Mandarin Glaze Sauce. Mix well to blend all ingredients.
    • 4

      Cover and place beef mixture into the fridge for at least 2 hours. Mold the beef into large round.
    • 5

      Start the Traeger on Smoke, lid open, until the fire is established (about 5 minutes). Carefully place the loaf on a cooking grid/rack placed on top of an aluminum foil-covered baking sheet.
    • 6

      Close lid and smoke on the Traeger for 1 hour. After the hour of smoke turn the heat up to 300 degrees and cook until the internal temperature of the meatloaf reaches 160 degrees F on an instant-read thermometer.
