Pretty basic, girlfriend is on keto so no breadcrumbs or filler.
1.5LB lean ground beef
1 LB ground pork
Chopped onion to taste
Couple cloves of garlic. I had smoked garlic so I used that.
1 pouch of onion soup mix
2 TBSP of pickle juice (optional, but worth it)
Mixed it up. Laid it out on parchment paper in a cookie sheet. Hit is with some meat church Gospel rub on the exposed meat and then rolled that up tight.
Coated all the exposed areas with meat church holy cow rub. In the fridge for a couple hours to set up.
Furtado Farms Hickory pellets in the hopper. First time trying their brand.
Smoker set to 180 super smoke on (I find I get the most smoke at that temp.). 2 hours at this temp. Probe in the meat, set to 165. Not as much white smoke with the pellets but did seem to have a bit of thin blue smoke throughout
After 2 hours I cranked the heat to 375. We like a bit of a 'crust' on the ouside of the loaf. When it got to 150, I put some PC pablano & Lime BBQ sauce just to glaze it. Minimal amount was used because it isn't a keto friendly sauce. (FYI anyone cooking for people on keto, Sweet Baby Ray's has a new keto friendly sauce available, haven't seen it here yet)
Took it off at 165 and let it rest tented for about 15 minutes
I could slice as thin or thick as I wanted. Without it falling apart
