How to Make Sweet BBQ Meatballs

Step-by-Step

  1. In a large bowl add the ground beef, eggs, minced garlic, and finely diced onion. Combine and roll into balls that are about the size of a golf ball. Set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl, add brown sugar, ketchup, teriyaki sauce, bbq sauce, liquid smoke, honey mustard, molasses, paprika, onion powder, and garlic powder. Mix well, cover and set aside for later.
  3. place the meatballs in a crockpot on high and let cook till almost done (about 2 hours). Add the bbq sauce and mix so all meatballs are covered. Let it cook till bbq sauce gets really thick. (about 2 more hours). Serve and enjoy! If there are any left over I chop them up and make baked beans with them..yummm!!
  4. The first time I made these were as an appetizer for a party and I blindly made them hoping they would be good just for the sake of something different. Everyone loved them and came back for more. After 5 yrs that is the main request I get for parties :)
