I use my Weber grill all year-long but really crank up the usage in the summertime. I am always experimenting with adapting recipes for the grill that I usually make in the oven. This meatloaf is a great example. I know, I know, you are saying, meatloaf on the grill, Quinn’s gone nuts. Well that might be true (the kids are out of school for the summer after-all) but wait it gets even better. Not only is the meatloaf cooked on the grill, but I also smoke it. The meatloaf turns out very moist, with a nice char on the top and a suitable smokey flavor.
If you do not have a smoker box, just grill as directed. Basically I am using my grill as an oven by cooking the meatloaf, at a low temperature, with indirect heat. It is also important to leave the grill lid closed as much as possible while cooking. To grill the meatloaf I used two disposable aluminium loaf pans. (TIP: Poke a few holes in the bottom of the loaf pans to allow grease to drain off)
I served the meatloaf with my Roasted Veggie Hash; click here for recipe.
