  • Put into a pre-heated smoker
  • Cooking until internal temperature is 150, try to avoid putting the temperature probe into the cheese. This will not give you an accurate meat temp. Depending on the size of your meatloaf this could take approximately 40 - 90 minutes. Check internal temperature several times to ensure meat is fully cooked and not overdone.
  • Remove from smoker and let rest 5 minutes before serving
