    Here's one I've done many times.

    It's from one of my favorite cookbooks, adapted for the BGE.

    Here are two of my favorites....

    Cowboy Meatloaf

    Meatloaf is like sausage in my book. Remove, add or change the amounts of anything you feel like.

    1 1/2 lbs ground beef, bison or venison
    1/2 lb ground pork butt
    1/3 cup finely chopped sweet onion
    2 green onions with tops, finely chopped
    2 tablespoons chopped garlic. Make it 3 if you like garlic.
    3 tablespoons Wooster
    2 tablespoons Mexican oregano
    2 tablespoons thyme, dried
    2 tablespoons parsley, dried
    1 egg
    1/2 to 3/4 cup of panko (Japanese bread crumbs)
    Sea salt and black pepper to taste
    Bacon strips (optional on beef, use with bison and venison)

    Combine 1/2 cup of the panko with the other ingredients and begin to mix. Only add more panko if the mixture looks too loose. Form into one large loaf or two 1lb loafs or logs. Add bacon to the top. Cook indirect at 325° - 350° until the internal reaches 155°, let rest and the temp will rise to 160° or so. You can cook these in a loaf pan, plain or perforated or on a disposable seafood or vegetable screen.

    I break the USDA rules with respect to doneness, pulling mine at 150°.
