This keto meatloaf is a unique recipe that uses a Traeger pellet grill to smoke the meatloaf.

    What is a pellet grill?

    A pellet grill is one of the most beloved advancements of barbequing. A pellet grill, or a smoker, is an outdoor cooker that uses wood pellets and fans to cook food at a specific temperature. You can use a pellet grill to smoke, braise, grill, bake, and of course, make Traeger meatloaves! It gives your food a smoky flavor.

    What pellets to use?

    When it comes to what flavor of pellets you should use, you can essentially use any flavor.

    We prefer to use Traeger’s signature blend for this recipe, which includes hickory, maple, and cherry hardwood flavors. We have found that this blend works the best with any cut of meat, making it an excellent pair for this keto meatloaf.

    Apple pellets are also a great flavor to use since it also complements this Traeger meatloaf.

    Whatever the case, make sure you “food safe” pellets and do not get them mixed up with heating pellets!

    Variations to meatloaf

If you want to try a different meatloaf recipe, you can even cook my BBQ Cheeseburger Meatloaf on the Traeger to give it a smoky cheeseburger flavor.

    Meatloaf tips for the Traeger

    Cooking this keto meatloaf on a Traeger grill is super easy to do!

    • Make sure to use a perforated tray so that the excess fat can drip off, and the meatloaf will be evenly cooked from underneath the meatloaf.
    • Once you place the meatloaf into the Traeger grill, all you need to do is grill it at 225 degrees for 2 to 3 hours.
    • Alternatively, you can also wait until the internal temperature of the meatloaf is 160 degrees Fahrenheit.
