For Cooking Meatballs

BBQ Sauce

  • 1 bottle Rufus Teague BBQ Sauce Whiskey and Maple flavor, Honey Sweet, or Touch O'Heat


  • Preheat oven 350 degrees

  • After 5 minutes, remove meatballs from freezer and immediately wrap each meatball with a half slice of bacon.
  • Brown meatballs in Olive Wood Smoked Olive Oil until just brown. Place into a baking dish.
  • Cover the meatballs with the Rufus Teague BBQ sauce.
  • Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes on a cookie sheet or in a 9x13 glass dish. *You can also place the meatballs on a cookie rack in the pan. This will keep the meatballs out of the bacon grease.*(If you use quality organic cuts of meat, you won’t have much grease)
  • At 20 minutes, take out and drain out bacon fat if needed. Brush on BBQ sauce and place back into the oven for 15 minutes.
  • Brush on more BBQ sauce and place back into the oven for 10 minutes. Total cooking time is 45 minutes or until golden brown.
  • Serve on toothpicks, or with egg noodles, mashed potatoes, or crusty french bread.
