BBQ Meatballs

BBQ meatballsThe best meatballs EVER! I could make these with my eyes closed, and they never receive anything but rave reviews. Make them for dinner one night and  then use the left overs for meatball sandwiches for lunch the next day!






  • 3lbs ground beef
  • 1 can (12oz) evaporated milk
  • 1C oatmeal
  • 1C breadcrumbs
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2C chopped onion
  • 1/2t garlic powder
  • 2t salt
  • 1/2t pepper
  • 2t chili powder


  • 2C ketchup
  • 1C brown sugar
  • 1/2t liquid smoke
  • 1/2t garlic powder
  • 1/4c chopped onion

How To:

Meatballs – Combine all meatball ingredients in a large bowl, and mix well. I use my hands! Shape into 1-2″ balls and place in a heatproof pan. Depending on how big your meatballs are will determine how many pans or what size you use. I usually get 2 9×13 pans out of this recipe.

In a separate bowl mix the sauce ingredients and pour over the meatballs. Bake at 350 for 30-40 minutes.
