So I was thinking about meatloaf....on the outdoor grill. Anyone got a spicy, smokey, tried and true winner they’re willing to share? Thanks!
From my uncle:
3-4lbs. Beef Ground Chuck(or 80% Lean Beef)
Your favorite Beef Spices
Barbecue Sauce or Tomato Sauce (use a spicey one to give it a little kick. He also used to add chopped jalapenos to the meat mixture.
Sauté sausage and bacon, and then add sliced vegetables, cooking only slightly so that they remain firm. Form the Beef Ground Chuck on a baking pan about 1-2” thick as shown. Spread some sauce on the meatloaf and then cover with your favorite shredded cheese. Now cover the meatloaf with all the prepared sausage, bacon and veggie’s. Place the loaf opposite the hot coals in a grill set up for indirect heat! Add some hickory wood, apple wood, or mesquite to produce a light smoke.(Optional) Maintain temperature of the covered grill at around 250-275f for up to about 1hour, or until the internal temp. of the meatloaf reaches about 160f. Remove, slice into burger patties, serve and enjoy. Perfect for slicing and sandwiches.
