Default Is it possible to load the boot loader into BIOS?

I will be removing the Intel ME (NSA/Backdoor) from my laptop's BIOS. This should free up 3MB of flash BIOS.

I'm wondering if it possible to load the initial OpenBSD boot loader into the BIOS somehow and then hand off the BIOS to running the kernel. My idea is to have the boot loader (is it Grub?) installed into the BIOS protected by a strong password to make the OS more secure. My understanding is that keyloggers and other malware is added to the boot loader so that these apps run whenever you boot.

If this is possible, what commands do I need to perform?

Thanks, Rob
