Reviews for Barbecue Meat Loaf
"The meatloaf was great, though I had to put more salt in it. Otherwisethe flavor was great and the meatloaf itself was nice and moist. :)"
"They meatloaf part is pretty much your standard meatloaf but the sauce puts it over the top."
"The meatloaf itself was very good. It had a good taste to it & was moist. The sauce seemed a little thin & bland to me. It might taste better if ketchup or chili sauce was used in place of the tomato sauce."
"very moist and tastey"
"I can't make this recipe OFTEN enough for my fiancé. He eat meat loaf every week if I made it. He likes this recipe better than his own mother's!!"
