Old School Meatloaf On The Grill Recipe

This recipe is very simple to the point where you can make all the preparations needed while your pit is heating up, wo prepare for indirect cooking, and while we’re getting up to temp, let’s make ourselves a meatloaf!

Start out by chopping the onion, green pepper, garlic and carrot. Proceed to mix all of the ingredients, except for half of the grated cheese and BBQ sauce. Mush everything together and shape into one large meatloaf.

Use the handle of a wooden ladle to mold some “flavor canals” into the top of the meatloaf, and spread as much BBQ sauce on it as you like.

Place the meatloaf in an oven dish that has a cover, and move the dish onto your grill, on the indirect heat area. Close the lid and cook for 1 hour 15 minutes.

About one hour later, the meat loaf should be just about done. Remove the cover of the oven dish and spread the other half of the grated cheese on top, and allow it to melt for 5 minutes.

When ready, let the meatloaf rest at room temperature for 10 minutes before carving into it.

And that’s how you cook meatloaf on the grill!
