Meatloaf

What really drew me to this recipe was the opportunity to break out my bottle of liquid smoke (which hasn't seen the light of day for quite some time).  I really like the flavor and texture of this meatloaf, but I wasn't crazy about the glaze, so I changed that and now I think this recipe is solid.
MEATLOAF
Yield: 6 servings

1 1/2 lb. ground beef
1/4 cup chopped onion
1/4 cup quick-cooking oats
1 cup dried bread crumbs
2 tablespoons cornmeal
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1 tablespoon sugar
1 egg, beaten
1/2 cup tomato juice
1/2 cup water
1 tablespoon barbecue sauce (can substitute ketchup)
1 tablespoon white vinegar
1 dash liquid smoke (optional)

glaze:
1/4 cup ketchup
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1 teaspoon ground mustard
1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce


1.      Preheat oven to 350º F.  Lightly grease a 9 x 5-inch loaf pan.
2.      In a large bowl, combine the beef, onion, oatmeal, bread crumbs, cornmeal, salt, sugar, egg, tomato juice, water, barbecue sauce, vinegar and a dash of liquid smoke. Mix together thoroughly and place mixture into the prepared pan.
3.      In a separate small bowl, combine the ketchup, brown sugar, mustard and worcestershire sauce and mix thoroughly. Spread over the top of the meatloaf.
4.      Bake for approximately 1 hour.

I wanna add a squirt of sriracha to that glaze and then all was good in the world.
