Grilled Bacon Wrapped Beer Cheese Stuffed Meatloaves

Grilled Bacon Wrapped Beer Cheese Stuffed Meatloaves

8 ounces, weight Sharp Cheddar Or Colby Jack Cheese
½ teaspoons Worcestershire Sauce
2 cloves Garlic, Chopped
1 teaspoon Dry Mustard
1 dash Cayenne Pepper
5 ounces, fluid Dark Beer (like Negro Modelo)
Salt To Taste

2 pounds Ground Beef
1 pound Ground Pork
2 whole Eggs
1-½ cup Quick Cooking Oats
4 cloves Garlic, Chopped
1 whole Onion (small) Grated
3 Tablespoons Tomato Paste
1 teaspoon Pepper
1-½ Tablespoon Kosher Salt
8 pieces Bacon, Sliced In Half

¾ cups Ketchup
2 Tablespoons Sriracha
2 Tablespoons Yellow Mustard
1 Tablespoon Worcestershire Sauce
2 Tablespoons Soy Sauce
1 Tablespoon Honey
½ teaspoons Garlic Salt

To make the beer cheese, add the cheese, Worcestershire sauce, garlic, dry mustard, and cayenne into the bowl of a food processor. Pulse to combine. Slowly pour in the beer and process until it becomes a smooth mixture. Add a dash of salt to taste. Transfer to a bowl and chill completely until ready to use.

In a large bowl combine the ground beef, pork, eggs, oats, garlic, onion, tomato paste, pepper and salt. Knead with your hands until just combined. Break off a teaspoon sized bite, put it on a saucer and microwave for about 30 seconds, until cooked. Taste for seasoning and adjust if necessary.

Section the meat into 8 equal portions. Gently flatten out one portion (be careful to not compress the meat) and wrap it around a ping pong ball sized scoop of the chilled beer cheese. Form into a meatloaf shape. Place two half slices of bacon across the top of the meatloaf in an “X” shape and put it on a tray. Repeat with the rest of the meat and cheese mixtures.

Mix the glaze ingredients in a small bowl until combined. Set aside.

Preheat the grill to medium heat and then shut off one side of the burners. Place the meatloaves on the cooler side of the grill to cook. Put the lid on and do not flip throughout the cooking process. Grill until the meatloaves are cooked throughout, about 20-30 minutes. About halfway through the cooking process brush on the glaze. Add more glaze to taste.
