"A man who was fond of wine was offered some grapes at dessert after dinner. "Much obliged," said he, pushing the plate aside; "I am not accustomed to take my wine in pills."--Jean Antheleme Brillat-Savarin, The Physiology of Taste

Nothing screams “COMFORT FOOD” like meatloaf. Behold this meat log of deliciousness, friend of every diner and satisfier of many hungry tummies, especially when the meatloaf is paired with its true life partner, mashed potatoes. Well… take that traditional version that you love so well and throw it out the window. Because we are taking this classic outdoors and we are throwing it on the grill.

3 pounds "meatloaf mix" of ground chuck, pork and veal
1 cup finely chopped onion
1 cup of Italian seasoned bread crumbs
¼ cup chopped parsley
2 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
2 tablespoon milk
2 teaspoon dry mustard
2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
1 egg
1 cup bottled barbecue sauce
1 Cup of Catsup
¼ Cup of Brown sugar

Set your grill up for a grill for indirect heat; soak 2 handfuls of mesquite chips in cold water. In a large mixing bowl, mix everything expect for the BBQ sauce, catsup and the Brown Sugar. Now in a separate bowl, mix the BBQ sauce, the catsup and the Brown Sugar. In a disposable aluminum pan, shape the meaty mixture into something that resembles a loaf about 6 inches wide and however long. Throw the wood chips on the fire. Place the meatloaf pan on the cool side of the indirect grill and leave for 1½ hours. Then brush the meat with the combined sauces and sugar and cook for 30 minutes more. 145 degrees is the temp you’re looking for.

Personal Notes:
Seeing as how I referred to mashed potatoes as meatloaf’s “Life Partner”. I really can’t imagine anything else to serve this dish with… can you?
