Directions

  1. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium heat, and scrape the grates clean. Spray grates with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. In a bowl, mix together the ground beef, ground pork, bread crumbs, onion, egg, Worcestershire sauce, garlic, tarragon, sea salt, and black pepper. Divide the mixture in half, and form 2 loaves, each about 4 inches in diameter and 6 inches long. In a small bowl, mix the barbecue sauce with ketchup until well combined.
  3. Place each meatloaf directly on the prepared grill grates, then spread each with about 3 tablespoons of barbecue sauce mixture; grill until the loaves reach an internal temperature of at least 160 degrees F (73 degrees C), about 1 hour.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Notes:
  • I often split this in half--3 pounds of meat is a lot for just two of us. However, I keep all the other ingredient amounts the same.
  • Oven Directions:
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease a baking dish or line it with greased foil. Shape the mixture into one large meatloaf (or, for shorter baking time, into two loaves). Bake in preheated oven for 45 minutes. Remove from oven, drain fat, and brush meatloaf with BBQ sauce. Return to oven and bake until fully cooked, about 20 minutes more. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 160 degrees F (70 degrees C).

I made this on my hunting trip and it was a huge hit! I didn't change a thing and everyone loved it. It made great sandwiches the next day too.

This is great. What's wrong with making too much? We just love cold meatloaf sandwiches. I cook it in my smoker and add a little mesquite smoke flavor to it. Fantastic.

Awesome, the smell from the grill while this was cooking had all the neighbors talking!

Grilled meatloaf is wonderful in the hot summer months. I only used ground beef and didn't have tarragon so used fresh Italian herbs from the garden instead. Of course I added more fresh garlic,...

Meatloaf is not one of my favorite dishes, but this recipe is amazing! By far the best my husband and I have had. One slight change. I added a splash of bourbon to the BBQ sauce. We will definit...
