    Can’t wait to try this!
    Can you share where you purchased your Moose hand towels? I need those!!!

    • Eva Shockey says:

      Hi Angie,

      Thanks! Aren’t they great?! I love those towels! I received them as a gift, so I don’t know where to purchase them, but the design is a local artist’s work – M. Cassidy. Hopefully that helps you find them!

    Do you make stroganoff?? If so, could you share that recipe?

    Eva, This looks delicious!! My dad has always been a hunter (from Alberta)and I never understood the” feeling” he would talk about when he would cook a deer or moose steak or us kids for dinner until I moved to montana 6 years ago and married a cattle rancher who is also die hard hunter. .Ive never hunted in my life until last fall and I was able to harvest a bull elk and a whitetail buck. I was able to watch the critters I harvested eat right by house along side our angus bulls. I knew what they were eating and watched them everyday. I also have a flock of chickens and to have fresh eggs in the fridge and home grown beef and wild game in the freezer is a pretty cool feeling. .. I never understood that “feeling” dad would tell us about but this year when I cook up fresh eggs and deer breakfast sausage or deer steaks I totally have that “feeling” and its awesome!! .My girls will pick wild game over our beef anyday of the week!! I also know that the family in need that I donated my elk to is just as happy!!.. (sorry for the story book). . Thank you for all you do!! Keep up the great work!!!!!

    Looks amazing! I’ll have to talk my husband into trying a different meat loaf recipe than his grandmas. ? What brand/ kind of load pan are you using?

    • Eva Shockey says:

      Hi Rachel,

      I’ve had this loaf pan for a while and it’s just the first one I grabbed out of the cabinet, but you can find it on Amazon here!

      Thanks for reading and hopefully your husband gives this meatloaf a chance 🙂

    Can’t wait to try this recipe. I agree one of the perks of hunting is having organic, good-quality meat to eat!

    I made this last night – amazing! My 9 month old son loved it too This was my first time using our Green Mountain grill for something like this and now I can’t wait to use it again! So easy :).

    Hi Eva!!

    First of all this recipe is so delicious! My husband absolutely loved it!

    Can you share where you got your white pants? I have a hard time finding white pants/jeans that flatter athletic legs, and the ones you have on in these pictures are super cute!


  11. […] you know me, you know I love my Traeger. Tim and I grill on it 4-5 times a week (like my wild game meatloaf), and I would honestly give up my kitchen for it if I had to make the choice. This grill is every […]

  12. Carla says:

    I made this with venison and it worked perfectly. Thanks for sharing!

  13. Kayla says:

    When you get ground wild game meat, do you have any sort of fat mixed in with it, or do you have it prepared just straight wild game?

  14. This was the best meatloaf ever! I made to batches one ground elk the other ground beef. My mom was vegetarian for a long time and now eats a little meat but had never had wild game. She was blown away by how amazing this meat loaf tasted AND preferred it over the ground beef (even though she cried when I told her how we got the elk) thank you so much for the great recipe and I really really hope you post more!

  15. […] Give this recipe a try and be sure to snap a pic, tag me on Instagram or Facebook, and let me know how it is!! If you aren’t the cook in your family, send them this blog and maybe they’ll have some inspiration next time dinner rolls around.

  16. Hi Eva,
    My wife, Laura, made this recipe while in Colorado this past summer (2018) visiting our adult children. She prepared and cooked it on our son’s Traeger, as directed. I must tell you, and everyone else for that matter… it was the best meatloaf I’ve had in my 61 years on this plant ! ABSOLUTELY AMAZING !!

    Thanks, from Maryland, for sharing your delicious recipe,

  17. Rob Tensen says:

    I have some fresh Alberta spring black bear ground meat that I might have to try with this recipe. Thank you.

  18. Jess says:

    Hey Eva,
    Is there a specific flavor of Traeger pellets that you like to use with your meatloaf?

  19. Brenda Dockery says:

    This looks amazing. I’m definitely going to try this. My meatloaf is never good when I use lean meat (deer or even lean beef) it comes out tough… I am gonna give this a try and make one for myself to see if I can get it right before I prepare for my dad. Thanks for sharing

  20. Jenny says:

    Hands down the absolute BEST meatloaf ever!!!! Ive been looking for more elk burger recipes and this one is now at the top of my list! Cant wait to make it again!!!! Thanks for the awesome recipe!!!!

  21. Carrie Espeseth says:

    Well I read the recipe and we eat alot of wild game. In northern Wisconsin, you are born, raised and taught to hunting, family traditions! I love watching the Shockey shows and my husband does too. I was looking for recipes ideas to make and just came across this one tonight. I jumped up and decided to try it. It is in the oven as I write this. I can’t wait to try it. Thanks Eva.

  22. I like that you added a glaze in this recipe to elevate its taste. I’ve always been curious about wild game recipes because my uncle sometimes goes on hunting trips. I’d like to try out eating wild game one of these days because it’s been a while since I’ve been adventurous in trying out new kinds of food to eat.

  23. […] TWO Traeger Grills and I don’t know what we would do without them!! We cook everything from meatloaf to salmon on […]

  24. […] is your favorite healthy meal to cook on the Traeger??I have SO many but a few staple items are meatloaf, wild-salmon, and jalape?o-poppers (a healthy swap is to get low-fat cream cheese and turkey […]

  25. Maudeisgone says:

    I’ve made this several times, and generally love it, but I’m wondering why the recipe changed.
    The measurements for the amount of BBQ sauce, and the measurements for the glaze has doubled/tripled…
