Has it every occurred to you to GRILL your meatloaf?? I had never thought of it until recently, and now my life has changed forever. It's the perfect summer dinner for many reasons: no hot oven warming up your house, you're able to spend time with Mother Nature, you can force a man on the grill, and then there's the flavor. That smoky, charred, grill flavor. Last night we used Carson's man toy, the Egg, to grill and essentially smoke the meatloaf. He soaked hickory chips in water for an hour and used those along with charcoal. He grilled the meatloaf at 350 for 45 minutes covered in tinfoil and another 15 minutes uncovered (at which point I smothered the top with ketchup). It almost brought tears to his eyes, it was that good.
