How to Cook Meatloaf on the Grill

Barbecue is most commonly associated with hamburgers and hot dogs, but did you know you can also cook meatloaf on the grill? Grilled meatloaf combines a classic comfort food with smoky barbecue flavors.

  1. The first step to making meatloaf on the grill is to prepare it as usual. Follow your standard meatloaf recipe to mix the meat and other ingredients as you normally would. Stop before putting it in the oven.
  2. Now, wrap your raw meatloaf in aluminum foil and preheat your grill to medium heat. Once the grill is ready, place the foil-wrapped meatloaf on the grill and close the lid.
  3. Allow it to cook for 30 to 40 minutes, turning the loaf occasionally to ensure even cooking.
  4. Carefully unwrap your meatloaf during the last 10 minutes and brush it with your preferred glaze or barbecue sauce.
  5. Continue cooking the meatloaf on the grill until its internal temperature reaches a safe 160°F.
  6. Let the meatloaf rest for a few minutes once it finishes cooking. Then, slice and enjoy alongside some delicious grilled corn, potatoes, or other vegetables.
