They are perfect for potlucks and large crowds. Many years ago, my hubby came home from work raving about these meatballs. He liked them so much that he actually brought me the recipe.

Far be it from me to deny a man his pleasure! I made a few tweaks to the recipe, making it my own. I use my Freezer Meatballs, which are a terrific compliment to the sauce. You can use your favorite meatball recipe or store-bought frozen ones (I’m not judging you, really.. well, maybe a little).

I have served this to several different groups of people and they have all loved it. My mother-in-law thinks Sweet BBQ Meatballs are awesome & we all know how hard it is to impress a mother-in-law! My husband loves it, my brother-in-law loves it, I loves it *giggle*

Liquid Smoke is generally found where the Barbecue sauce is in the grocery store. If you have never cooked with it – you’re gonna fall in love. I prefer Natural Hickory Flavor by Colgin Liquid Smoke.

This recipes serves at least a dozen or more people. If you want to serve it at home for a family of 4 – cut it by 3!
