I love to grill out. Anything I can grill, I grill!! The meatloaf on the grill is a family and friends tradition. I have done the meatloaf on the grill for 20 years. When the weather turns nice, the first thing they ask for is my meatloaf. So, I will post it for you to enjoy.

What a great recipe! We added apple cider into the hickory chips for an extra boost of flavor from the grill.
