Very tasty. Used ketchup, whiskey, and subbed onion powder. The whiskey flavor mellowed out after simmering.

These were great for football Sunday! I ran out of ketchup, so I used half ketchup and half barbeque sauce. I also didn’t have whiskey, so I used Southern Comfort. I made twice the sauce and added in a pounds worth of prepackaged meatballs. I made it as you suggested and then put in a slow cooker on low to keep them warm during the game. With the leftover meatballs and sauce, I brought out some hoagies and made meatball subs. It was all so good! The only thing I might change for next time is to leave out about a fourth of the alcohol because it was a little overpowering for our taste. Great recipe, though. Thanks!

These are a great appetizer! My 4 year old can't get enought of these! I made them for a Super Bowl Party this year and someone else brought their Little Smokie recipe and they took almost all thier's home while I took home an empty bowl! Really quick and simple and ALWAYS a hit!
