  • Mix venison, stuffing mix, water, onion, 1/4 cup barbeque sauce, eggs, salt, and black pepper together in a large bowl until fully incorporated. Shape venison mixture into a loaf and place in a 9x13-inch baking dish. Spread 1/4 cup barbeque sauce over the top of loaf.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until no longer pink in the center, about 1 hour. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 160 degrees F (70 degrees C).

Made this tonight exactly as stated. I admit I was a bit skeptical about the amount of water and stuffing that it called for. It turned out much better than I expected. My oldest son and husband loved it. My youngest wouldn't touch it after a bite and I thought it had a nice flavor. The only thing I'd change is swap out 1 lb of the ground venison burger for ground venison sausage (something I do for all my meatloaves normally to add more flavor) and cut down on a little bit of the stuffing (the seasoning in it was a bit much with the barbecue.) The barbecue was much more predominant than what I usually taste in my regular meatloaf with ketchup. Very nice change! Read More

Won't be making this again. Waaaay too much onion even with 2 1/2 lbs. of meat. My stupid fault for putting it all in but I didn't realize it til it was too late. I don't think meatloaf is supposed to be crunchy. Could barely taste the BBQ sauce. Even added extra to accommodate the extra meat. Basically flavorless. Read More

This was PERFECT for me. Not a lot on-hand at the moment but I definitely have all of this I tell you. It was easy delicious and definitely NOT too onion-y. We used Sweet Baby Ray's for a BBQ and ohhh OHHH. Perfect. Just perfection. Lean and wonderful. They couldn't tell it was venison! Loved this definitely will use again. Read More

I made some slight changes. Venison was 15% pork added. Used 2lbs. The BBQ sauce used was Sweet Baby Rays Honey. I added 3 tbs of Lea & Perrin Worcestershire to it. Used a small to medium white onion and a stick of celery chopped. Stuffing used was Stove Top Savory Herb. Replaced water with 3/4c of milk. For topping rather than more BBQ sauce I used my blend of Heinz ketchup brown sugar French's spicy brown mustard and Ghost Sauce (http://soninlaw.net) It's good. I'll make it like this again. Literally just finished eating and want more... Just no more room.;-) Read More

I made this along with another venison meatloaf recipe during the bow rut hunt. It was my first time ever making venison meatloaf, and I was a bit skeptical. But we had a freezer full of deer meat so I thought I'd give it a try. The recipe was delicious and so easy. I used chicken broth instead of water. The hunters voted this the best recipe, and I will definitely be making this again! Read More

I will definitely make this again! The only thing I did differently is to use one lb of sausage and one lb of venison. The flavor was divine. So savory and perfect for comfort food. My 1 and 3 year old both ate it up. It really makes a huge serving too! Read More
