"This will also work well using Lil Smokies in place of meatballs and are best served from a crockpot with a long fork, you may bake the meatballs cool then freeze just thaw in refrigerator overnight and drop in the simmering sauce and may be oven-baked or browned in a skillet, you might need to adjust the sauce ingredients to suit taste, if you like more cranberry flavor then increase the cranberry sauce by half a can or one can"

A big hit at my Halloween party! I left out the cayenne but used the Frank's hot sauce for flavor. I didn't want too hot for the little ones.

These were made to have at my grandfather's birthday party and they were very delicious. Every last meatball was eaten and only a little sauce was left. I love that you don't have to heat up the house to make these, by using the grill and baking them in a baking sheet over indirect heat!
