2 lbs ground beef
1 lb mild ground sausage
1 yellow onion diced
2 celery ribs, chopped
1/2 cup bread crumbs (I used panko)
8 peppered thick cut bacon strips
Set bacon strips aside. In a large bowl, combine all other ingredients and mix well with hands until completely combined.
Add combination to a 10″ Dutch oven and place bacon strips on top of the meatloaf. This will make the meatloaf moist.
Bake at 350 degrees for 1 1/2 hours or until done. You may have to add coals at the end to ensure the bacon is cooked through.
