  1. Preheat a smoker or pellet grill to 250ºF.

  2. In a small pan, heat the oil over medium heat and add the onion. Cook until softened, 7-10 minutes. Allow to cool completely.

  3. In a small bowl, combine milk and breadcrumbs to form a thick paste, stirring well. Leave 5 minutes to allow crumbs to absorb all the milk and swell.

  4. In a large bowl, combine the Ground Beef, onion, breadcrumb mixture, 1 Tbsp. of tomato paste, garlic, Worcestershire sauce,, eggs, paprika, salt, and parsley. Using hands, mix lightly but thoroughly.

  5. Carefully scrape the meat out onto a wire rack or a loaf pan, and shape into a loaf.

  6. In a bowl, combine remaining tomato paste, BBQ sauce and vinegar to make a sauce.

  7. Brush meatloaf with the first coating of sauce, and place the entire rack into the smoker. Brush with the sauce during cooking every 35-40 minutes.

  8. Cook the meatloaf until it reaches an internal temperature of 165ºF, about 3-4 hours.
