Venison Meatballs

Rated as 4.77 out of 5 Stars

"'I learned to cook game while my husband was a forestry student,' recalls Sheila Reed from Fredericton, New Brunswick. 'We lived off the land as much as possible. I still enjoy these savory meatballs in a slightly sweet barbecue sauce. I make a bib batch for an annual pool party and there are never any left.'"

Excellent!! Will make again

Really good. The sauce may need a little more ketchup in it. I added a dash of cider vinegar to give a little kick. Thanks for a great recipe.
