now that it’s FINALLY starting to warm up this year, I can’t wait to make my favorite recipe for the grill: meatloaf! I adapted my recipe from Weber’s Way to Grill in a few ways, which make it cook through much better and just adapted to my preferences.


3/4 lb. ground beef

1/2 lb. ground pork

1/2-1 cup GF breadcrumbs

1/2-1 cup chopped onions

1 egg

1/2 tsp GF Worhestershire sauce

1/2 tsp garlic

1/2 tsp salt

1/2 tsp pepper

1/2 cup GF BBQ sauce

1/4 cup ketchup


mix all of the ingredients together, except for the BBQ sauce and ketchup. divide into 4 mini-loaves, and place on pre-heated grill. the heat should be around 300 degrees optimally, or as low as you can get it if higher. after the bottom starts getting a little crispy, flip them over. mix the BBQ sauce and ketchup together. start with a quarter of this mixture in a bowl and grab something to baste the outside of the meatloaf with it. smear the sauce all over the sides and top of each mini-loaf. if you need more sauce, get it, just use a new utensil to add it to your bowl, so you don’t contaminate the rest of it with semi-raw meat juices. after the inside temp of the loaf hits 165 degrees or so (to your taste), take them off and slice them up. with these mini-loaves, there should be plenty of crispy edges, and by grilling you avoid the slimy fatty oil layer that forms when you bake it in the oven. I never liked meatloaf until I tried this grilling method, and now it’s one of my favorites! I hope you enjoy as well!
