The sweet, thick barbecue sauce clings to large tasty meatballs.  This recipe is one of my favorites to take to potlucks or to serve as a meal after harvest.

Sweet Barbecue Meatballs Recipe

Sweet Barbecue Meatballs

1 cup quick-cooking oats

1 egg

1/3 cup evaporated milk

¾ tsp. chili powder

¾ tsp. salt

¼ tsp. pepper

1/8 tsp. garlic powder

1 ½ lbs. ground pork

1 cup ketchup

¾ cup packed brown sugar

2 ½ tsp. liquid smoke, optional

½ tsp. lemon juice

In a large bowl, combine the first seven ingredients.  Crumble pork over mixture and mix well.  Shape into 2 inch balls.  Place meatballs on a greased rack in a shallow baking pan.  Bake, uncovered, at 375 F. for 20-25 minutes or until a thermometer reads 160 F.  Drain on paper towels.  Transfer to an ungreased 2 quart baking dish.

Meanwhile, in a saucepan, combine ketchup, brown sugar, liquid smoke if desired and lemon juice; cook and stir until brown sugar is dissolved.  Pour over meatballs.  Bake, uncovered, at 375 F. for 10-15 minutes longer or until heated through.             6 servings
