This grilled meatloaf recipe is cooked on a wood plank and is so easy to make. Grill enthusiasts of any skill level can make this one!
Personally I feel like grilled meatloaf is the most under-rated food of all time. Some people love it, some people don’t. Honestly, I happen to love it!
The downside of meatloaf is it’s a bit hard to photograph. It’s just one of those foods that does not blow people’s minds when they see the photo.
I say don’t judge a book by its cover. Or a meatloaf by its photo for that matter. Brown food is just a bit hard to make “pretty” sometimes.
That said, this is one of my favourite easy recipes of all time. My Mom used to make meatloaf all the time and I always get crazy nostalgic when I make it.
What I really dig about grilled meatloaf is how versatile it is. I mean, you can stuff it with cheese, wrap it bacon, shove jalapeno peppers or garlic into it. The possibilities are freaking endless.
Another thing I totally love about it is you can make kick ass sandwiches with it the next day. Nothing beats meatloaf sandwiches. They are life changing!
For this recipe, I used wood planks to cook the meatloaf. Make sure you soak your wood planks in water before using them.
Now, run outside and fire up that grill immediately. Then, use the leftover to make my Mini Meatloaf Sandwiches with Red Pepper Pesto. You’re welcome!

Grilled Planked Meatloaf
- Soak a plank of wood in water for at least an hour. Trust me, if you don't soak long enough you'll run into trouble.
- In a large bowl mix together the ground beef, salad dressing, egg, worcestershire sauce, vidalia onion, bread crumbs, salt and pepper. Just mix long enough for it to come together. Never over-mix meatloaf or burgers. Trust me.
- Shape the meat into two loaves. I do the shaping right on the planks. It just makes it so much easier.
- Place on a medium heat grill, right on the grate. Close the lid and allow to cook for about 30 minutes.
- Lift the lid and brush the barbecue sauce all over the meatloaves. Put the lid back down and cook for about 15 to 20 more minutes.
- Remove from the grill and allow to rest for about 10 to 15 minutes. Slice it up.
- Serve with a big meatloaf loving smile!
Now be confident and get your grill on!
