I followed the advice of some of the other recommendations and slathered on a bu..." See morench of extra BBQ sauce under the bacon (heaven), used seasoned breadcrumbs instead of crushed crackers (fabulous), upped the spices as I do with everything and only cooked it for about an hour. It was perfectly done, and everyone who ate it was obsessed about getting the recipe from me. Also, for a novice/fearful chef like me, it was super-easy to make, and hard to screw up which is always a plus."
"Excellent recipe. My wife was so impressed with the way the meatloaf turned out that she wants me to continue making it this way.I didn't use any liquid smoke because I didn't have any, but I did us..." See moree both Lays BBQ chips and original Lays.And I also used Cattlemen's Classic BBQ sauce and cooked the bacon first separate from the meatloaf. Towards the last ten minutes of cook time I layered the bacon over the top and added shredded mild cheddar cheese."
