Jimmy, The Kapn is right about over processing the mixture. Go easy. Here is a suggestion for a simple loaf that is delicious when smoked.

Applesauce Meatloaf

Serving Size : 8 Preparation Time :2:00
Categories : Beef Meats

Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
3 lb ground beef -- lean
1 1/2 cups bread crumbs -- fine, dry
1 cup Ketchup
1 cup Applesauce
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon pepper

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine ingredients and place in loaf pan. Bake 90 minutes. Makes 8 servings.

NOTE: Add one or two eggs to mixture for better texture, especially when smoking.

As I said it is simple but it is very moist and flavorful when smoked. I do not have the smoking instructions written down, but in my smoker at around 250 it will take about 2.5 to 3 hours to get done.

Tear off some HD tin foil not much bigger than each meatloaf. Poke a few holes in the foil, put the meatloaf on the foil, then on your smoker shelf.

good luck

ps, I always use pecan for this if I have it.

Para Bellum
