Melanie Barnard's "Everyone Loves Meatloaf"
My mother invented barbecued meatloaves, or at least I hope that she did since I've been touting her recipe as the world's greatest with much success for many years now. Here is the latest version of her original.
Prepare a medium-hot barbecue fire in a covered grill or preheat a gas grill.
In a large mixing bowl, use your hands to gently but thoroughly combine the meat, onion, bread crumbs, parsley, Worcestershire sauce, milk, mustard, salt, pepper, nutmeg, cloves and egg. Form the mixture into 6 oval loaves, each about 3/4-inch thick.
Grill the meatloaves, turning two or three times and brushing with the sauce halfway through the cooking, until the loaves are well browned and crisp on the outside and the meat is no longer pink in the center, about 15 minutes.
For leftovers, make barbecued meatloaf sandwiches. Cut the loaves into chunks, then simmer for about 10 minutes in barbecue sauce thinned with a little beer or ginger ale. Serve on soft hamburger buns or white bread.
