Here is one we do for meat-loaf that has a little different kick to it. It is delicious!
BBQ MEAT LOAF
1 & 1/2 pound lean ground beef
1/2 pound ground pork
1 cup chopped onion, med fine
1/2 cup chopped bell pepper, med fine
2 thick slices of dry toasted bread, crumbled
1 large fresh egg, beaten
3/4 cup of any spicy barbecue sauce
3 T. worcestershire sauce
1 & 1/2 T. minced garlic
1 T. chili powder (or to taste)
Salt & pepper (to taste)
1 cooked smoked sausage, 6-8 inches (we use Andouilli)
Mix all of the ingredients is a bowl except the sausage.
Turn out the mixture on waxed paper and then flatten the mixture enough to place the sausage down the center.
Wrap the mixture around the sausage and shape to form a loaf with the sausage in the center.
Place in a loaf pan and and make a grove in the top and pour in some additional BBQ sauce.
Place on a hot covered barbecue for about an hour. You know it is done if it begins to pull from the pan.
Allow to cool for about 15-20 minutes, slice, and turn out onto a serving platter. You can add more sauce on top of sliced meat if you like.
This can also be baked in a 350 degree oven, but the barbecue smoke makes it more delicious in my opinion.
This goes great with Macaroni & cheese, dirty rice, or any potatoes!
If you try it, I hope you like it!
