Move over, Mom’s Meatloaf… there’s a new recipe in town, and this one is a doozy. Not for the faint of heart.
The BBQ Pit Boys are back, and this time they’ve got five pounds of ground beef ready to throw over the barbecue. But instead of taking the meat and forming a loaf, this recipe flattens the beef first (like a crust), then layering with delicious toppings, then rolling it up into a log.
It’s brilliant, customizable, and absolutely mouth-watering.
Here are the step-by-step directions (via BBQ Pit Boys)
- Bring grill temperature up to 275-300 degrees Fahrenheit, with coals offset for indirect cooking.
- Place bacon opposite hot coals to smoke for one hour. Do not overcook the bacon.
- Remove bacon after one hour and chop.
- Dice onion and celery.
- Shave desired amount of cheese.
- Wet down a cutting board with water or beer so meat mixture won’t stick.
- Put ground chuck on the cutting board and knead like pizza dough until it is ½ inch thick. Even edges to make it square shape for rolling.
- Sprinkle meat with SPG to taste.
- Brush on a layer of marinara sauce.
- Apply a layer of onions, celery, bacon, and shaved cheese.
- Lift front edge of ground chuck and begin to roll front to back. Be sure to work the sides to keep the toppings inside. Form it into a uniform roll.
- Place opposite hot coals for indirect cooking.
- Apply a layer of marinara on top with three slices of uncooked bacon.
- Cover grill and allow to cook for 45 – 50 minutes.
- Remove grill cover and apply another layer of shaved cheese to the top of the meatloaf.
- Cover grill and cook until cheese is melted and the internal temperature is 155 – 160 degrees Fahrenheit. Be sure to use an instant read thermometer to check the temperature.
- Remove meatloaf from grill and rest for 10 minutes.
- Slice meatloaf into serving size pieces.
- Sit back, relax, and enjoy!
