Fancy meatloaf! Great to serve when you have company! And it's delicious! Another great recipe from R. Reisman.

This was the best meatloaf I have ever had! It was actually easier to prepare than I had expected. Rolling it was pretty easy, using the wax paper. The barbecue sauce is not overpowering, as I had thought it might be. Excellent recipe, I highly recommend it. Also made extra fancy meatloaf sandwiches from the leftovers.
