Preheat the grill (or oven) to 350 degrees.
Finely chop the bread in a food processor (or the old-fashioned way).
Chop the bell pepper and onion (jalapeno too if you want a little kick).
Finely chop the garlic.
Crack two eggs in a large mixing bowl and add the ground beef, ground pork, bread crumbs, chopped bell pepper, chopped onion, garlic, thyme, rosemary, crushed red pepper, salt and black pepper. Mix well.
Form the loaf on a baking sheet.
In another bowl mix the brown sugar, ketchup, and worcestershire sauce. Spread the mixture across the top of the loaf.
Put the loaf on the grill or in the oven for 1 hr. to 1 hr & 15 minutes until the internal temperature reaches 160 degrees.
To help keep the meatloaf moist while cooking, place a small tray of water beside or underneath the loaf.
Slice, serve and enjoy!
