  1. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium heat, and scrape the grates clean. Spray grates with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. In a bowl, mix together the ground beef, ground pork, bread crumbs, onion, egg, Worcestershire sauce, garlic, tarragon, sea salt, and black pepper. Divide the mixture in half, and form 2 loaves, each about 4 inches in diameter and 6 inches long. In a small bowl, mix the barbecue sauce with ketchup until well combined.
  3. Place each meatloaf directly on the prepared grill grates, then spread each with about 3 tablespoons of barbecue sauce mixture; grill until the loaves reach an internal temperature of at least 160 degrees F (73 degrees C), about 1 hour.


  • Cook's Note:
  • I often split this in half -- 3 pounds of meat is a lot for just two of us. However, I keep all the other ingredient amounts the same.
  • Tip
  • Aluminum foil can be used to keep food moist, cook it evenly, and make clean-up easier.

This is great. What's wrong with making too much? We just love cold meatloaf sandwiches. I cook it in my smoker and add a little mesquite smoke flavor to it. Fantastic.

Unfortunately, my husband and I don't share the enthusiasm of others who have tried this recipe. We found the flavor of the herb overwhelming and, therefore, did not enjoy this meatloaf. I think...

Loved it!!

Awesome, the smell from the grill while this was cooking had all the neighbors talking!

Meatloaf is not one of my favorite dishes, but this recipe is amazing! By far the best my husband and I have had. One slight change. I added a splash of bourbon to the BBQ sauce. We will definit...

Grilled meatloaf is wonderful in the hot summer months. I only used ground beef and didn't have tarragon so used fresh Italian herbs from the garden instead. Of course I added more fresh garlic,...
