This one would probably be better with fresh meatballs. The meatballs were mushy and the texture affected the taste. Read More

I made this quick and easy recipe for a New Year's Party and it was great! It was super easy and everyone liked it. I doubled the recipe and used two types of bbq sauce - one original KC masterpiece and one KC Masterpiece with hickory brown sugar and the flavor was really good not overwhelming at all. I will make this one again thanks for sharing! Read More

This is a great and easy recipe. I made it for a Super Bowl party. I used 3 different BBQ sauces: Regular KC Masterpiece KC Masterpiece Hickory Brown Sugar and Gates BBQ sauce and without the ketchup. Another way to do this is to cook the meatballs by themselves in the oven until hot and then put in the slow cooker with the BBQ sauces and keep warm until served. Read More

I made my own meatballs instead of using frozen ones so the cook time was a little longer (3.5 hours). These are great every time and always seem to be the first thing that disappears when company comes over. Great for the beginner or those strapped for time. Add 2 table spoons of raspberry jam and a touch of honey for enhanced sweetness. Very good. Read More

I thought this was a delicious and easy way to whip up some meatballs. I used Simeks Meatballs, Jack Daniels Honey Smokehouse BBQ Sauce (which has a little smokey flavor to it) and added the Ketchup and some Worcestershire Sauce and a sprinkle of Garlic Salt. Delicious. Read More

AMAZING!!!! I totally lied and said I made this from scratch!!! ;) This is a really amazing foundation for your own special customized bbq meatball recipe. I doubled the ingredients stated in the recipe and I also put my own twist on it. I think the brand of sauce is super important...I used Original Sweet Baby Ray's and Publix brand frozen meatballs...I also added an 8oz. can of crushed pineapple (un-drained), a tablespoon of ground cayenne pepper, and 1 teaspoon of garlic powder...AMAZING!! HUGE hit! The guys were licking their plates!... yum!! Read More

This is a great fast easy recipe for the ingredients and cost. It's no gourmet meatball but the taste certainly outdoes the prep work and time it takes to make so I give it a 5 star. The BBQ sauce is up to you so choose well. That ingredient will make or break your batch. Read More
