I looked up recipes for this and used a combination of them and improvised some. I have never once liked meatloaf in my life. This is a different story. The recipes I looked up used 3/4 ground beef and 1/4 ground pork, which I'm sure would work good. I just happen to be in possession of a bunch of ground bison, which is by far superior to ground beef. Ground venison or elk would be an excellent alternative to bison.

Smoked meatloaf-

1 1/2 lbs ground bison

6 oz bacon

1 smallish onion

3 fresh jalapeños

4-5 garlic cloves

2 eggs

1 qt size ziplock lightly filled with Ruffle brand potato chips (use a ruffle type potato chip)

1/4 cup BBQ sauce

Dice bacon, onion and jalapeño into 1/8" pcs and mince garlic. Lightly sauté (just slightly browned) bacon, onion, jalapeño and garlic. Crush potato chips into oblivion. Beat egg. Gently mix all ingredients (including BBQ sauce). Lightly oil a piece of foil and form meatloaf into a 2" high oblong shape. Prepare grill for indirect cooking with charcoal shoved to each side of grill. Place a handful of soaked wood chips on charcoal and place meatloaf (on foil) in center of grate. Add wood chips every 20 minutes or so. Maintain grill at approx 225-250*. Cook meatloaf for about 1 1/2- 2 hrs until internal temp reaches 155*. Remove from heat and tent in foil for 20 minutes. If using ground beef, I personally would use ground pork instead of bacon because of the fat content of the beef. Bison or venison can handle the fat from the bacon.
