BBQ Meatloaf

Who doesn’t like meatloaf? Here’s one that is so easy to do on your BBQ.
This recipe is based on one from DJ BBQ’s aka Christian Stevenson. It was passed down to him by his Grandma.
If you have a chance I would watch some of his videos on You Tube. He has some great ideas and a huge personality.
He currently has three books in print and we can recommend them all. Some cracking recipes in there.

  • Prep Time15 min
  • Cook Time1 hr
  • Total Time1 hr 15 min
  • Yield6 Servings


  • 1 large onion finely diced
  • 1 pepper diced
  • 1 medium carrot peeled and diced
  • 800gms mince (we used half beef, half pork)
  • 1 clove garlic peeled and crushed

  • 100gms stale bread crumbs
  • salt and pepper
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 150gms cheese
  • 100mls bbq sauce, we used texas chipolte this time from our freinds at red dog



Put all the ingredients (only half the cheese) in a bowl and mix well together.


Shape into a rectangle and place in a disposable roasting tin.


Use the handle of a wooden spoon to make some diagonal indents into the top of the meat loaf.


Pour over half the sauce.


Set the bbq for indirect and get the temp up to around 180°C


Cook for an hour or so, checking the internal temp of the meatloaf hits 74°C.


Sprinkle the remainder of the cheese and cook until it’s is melted.


Slice it up and serve with the remainder of the sauce


We like to reheat this in a frying pan the next day by cooking some onions, adding some gravy and a little bbq sauce
