Barbecued Meatballs

These meatballs are so good it’s hard to just eat a few. The recipe does make a lot, around 4 dozen, so this is perfect for a pot luck dinner or other large gathering. Enjoy!

1 egg, lightly beaten
1 can (5oz) evaporated milk
1 cup quick-cooking oats
1/2 cup finely chopped onion
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. chili powder
1/4 tsp. garlic powder
1/4 tsp. pepper
1 1/2 lbs. ground beef

1 cup ketchup
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup chopped onion
1/2 tsp. liquid smoke, optional
1/4 tsp. garlic powder

In a bowl, combine the first eight ingredients. Crumble beef over mixture and mix well. Shape into 1 in. balls; place in a greased 13×9 baking dish. Bake, uncovered, at 350 for 18-20 minutes or until meat is no longer pink. Meanwhile, combine the sauce ingredients in a saucepan. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 2 minutes, stirring frequently. Pour over meatballs. Bake 10-12 minutes longer.
