BBQ~ed kielbasa

Irisa Raina 9


Cooking time may vary depending on if you use a charcoal grille, gas grille or use your oven. If you use an oven I would bake it at 325 and check it at 30 minute increments.
If you think the BBQ sauce has not cooked down enough, put it in a pot and cook it down!
This will work with any type of smoked sausage, and by letting the sausage soak in the sauce before cooking it, all the BBQ sauce goodness soaks into the meat!
And if you have any of the sauce left, save it for another use.
This is an amazing dish served with coleslaw, and baked beans!

How to Make BBQ~ed kielbasa


  1. Cut the onion into large chunks, add to the baking dish.
  2. Cut the pepper into small pieces; add ½ on the top of the onions.
  3. Score the kielbasa in ¼ inch spaces all around on both sides and place on top of the onions and peppers.
  4. Top with the remaining ½ of the peppers.
  5. Pour BBQ sauce over the top. Depending on how large of a piece the kielbasa is you may need the whole bottle of sauce.
  6. Add 1 tablespoon of water, and hot sauce to the bottle of BBQ sauce and swish it around to get all the sauce out. Pour it over the kielbasa.
  7. I know this looks like a lot of BBQ sauce, but you’ll see that when it’s done, it will have cooked down.
  8. Cover with foil or slide it in a large zip baggie and refrigerate for several hours.
  9. When it’s time to cook the kielbasa, if you have used a plastic baggie remove it and cover tightly with foil. It is important that the foil is tightly sealed so the kielbasa will bake, and so that not too much of the sauce will cook out to soon.
  10. Put it on your grill “ using the indirect “ cooking method for about 1 to 1~ ½ hours. Turning the pan a couple of times.
  11. After that time remove the foil and take the sausage out leaving as much of the sauce on the kielbasa that you can.
  12. Place it over the hot side of the grille and let it get crispy on one side. Serve with the remaining sauce, onions and peppers.
  13. If you do this in an oven, to brown the kielbasa remove the foil, take most of the sauce out and let it brown.
