Our favorite meatball recipes

While we love an excuse to dip mouthfuls of meat into BBQ sauce, our best BBQ meatball recipes are more than just a sauce-to-mouth delivery system. One recipe, from our friend Jimmy at The Smoking Ho, transforms the idea of meatloaf from a sit-down meal to the perfect food for mingling at a party or strolling through a tailgate. Another recipe fills two kinds of smoked meat with melted cheese before a dunk in a BBQ sauce glaze. And then there’s the recipe that’s a classic combo of grape jelly, BBQ sauce, and meat—an aroma that fills the entire house with memories of home, and tastes exactly like you remember.

And that’s just the beginning. Grab some toothpicks, some hungry friends, and plenty of napkins. When it comes to these meatball recipes, there is no such thing as too much sauce.
