Directions
Watch how to make this recipe.
  • Divide the meatloaf mix between 2 large commercial-size pots and brown the meat for 3-5 minutes under a high flame. Drain most of the fat, leaving a little in for seasoning. Add the Worcestershire Sauce and mix well.

  • Divide the onions and peppers between the 2 pots, add salt and crush 1 tablespoon of the oregano between your hands into each pot. Divide the garlic between the two pots and stir everything together. Cook for 3 to 5 minutes. Add 1/2 gallon of barbeque sauce to each pot, cover and simmer over low heat for 30 minutes.

  • Heat the olive oil in 2 large frying pans, add the sausages and cook for about 5 to 8 minutes, until no longer pink. Drain any fat from the sausages.

  • Add the sausages from each frying pan to the pots of barbeque meatloaf mixture, and continue cooking, stirring occasionally, for about an hour.

  • Serve over hamburger buns.
