    Quick & Easy Mini Meatloaf on the grill

    Got the idea from Cooks Illustrated for a quick weeknight meal. 50/50 Pork / Beef, basic meatloaf recipe, formed into roughly 3x4" loaves. Tried a front sear but too tender for that, so brought up close to 160 then seared. Glazed with 50/50 peach preserves & my BBQ sauce. They were pretty darned good and made nice portions for dinner and leftovers.

    The small size cooked fast and held up great on the grill.

    I like to make small ones too. Much easier to freeze and reheat. I take them right from the freezer and plop them in the sous vide pool.

        That looks like it belongs in my belly, with a side of PBR

      I also make 'em small - sized for one meal and leftovers are freezable.


        Loose on the grill smaller is the way to go. Make sure they are COLD when they go to the grate. Helps them hold together early. Meatloaf is one of the most underrated meat items to cook on the grill IMO.


          Nice idea, had meatloaf tonight. SWMBO likes the idea and next time.
          Like the looks of the pan they are in.


            Excellent cook, an idea!

            Certainly love to hear bout yer BBQ Sauce...


              Isn't a small meatloaf simply a large burger?

              Masterbuilt MPS 340/G ThermoTemp XL Propane Smoker

              This is the first propane smoker with a thermostat, making this baby foolproof. Set ThermoTemp’s dial from 175° to 350°F and the thermostat inside will adjust the burner just like an indoor kitchen oven. All you need to do is add wood to the tray above the burner to start smokin’.

              Grilla Pellet Smoker proves good things come in small packages

              We always liked Grilla. The small 31.5″ x 29.5″ footprint makes it ideal for use where BBQ space is limited, as on a condo patio.

              The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, grilled cheese, and so much more. And why deep fry indoors when you can avoid the smell and mess by doing it outside!

              The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy

              The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It is absolutely positively without a doubt the best bargain on a smoker in the world. Period. This baby will cook circles around the cheap offset sideways barrel smokers because temperature control is so much easier.
