    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!!

    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 :)
