Smoked Meatloaf Recipe (By Request)

After posting some pictures of my recent cooks - including a tasty loaf of smoked meat - a few people asked for the recipe.  

Here are the ingredients:

1-1/4 lb ground chuck
1/4 lb ground pork
3 slices toasted, crumbled bread
1 medium, sweet onion
1/2 green bell pepper, chopped
1/2 cup finely grated carrot 
2 cloves of garlic, minced
1/2 cup of grated sharp cheddar cheese
1 egg 
2/3 cup milk
Salt and pepper


1/4 cup ketchup
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 tablespoon mustard

Mix all the ingredients (minus the topping) and combine in a meatloaf pan that's lined with saran wrap.  Let the loaf set up in the fridge for a hour or two and get the egg stabilized around 260 and set up for indirect cooking on an elevated grid.  Add smoke - I used mostly hickory and one chunk of mesquite for extra flavor.  Then, use then use the saran wrap to remove the loaf from the pan and place it directly on the grid.  At 260-275, it was finished in about 3 hours and 20 minutes.  Rest, slice, and enjoy.

Please let me know if the recipe works for you or if you have any suggestions to make it better.

FYI - this recipe is not completely original and is based off of several recipes that I combined, one of which I believe was posted by @onelikearock.
