Barbecued Meatballs

This is a family favorite appetizer! It is great for a crowd! This recipe comes from my momma.

3 lbs. ground beef
1 can (12 ounce) evaporated milk
1 cup oatmeal
1 cup cracker crumbs
2 eggs
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
2 teaspoons chili powder
2 teaspoons salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper

2 cups ketchup
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon liquid smoke
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 cup chopped onion

To make meatballs, combine all ingredients and shape into walnut-sized balls. Place meatballs in a 9x13 inch baking pan or on a cookie sheet. To make sauce, combine all the ingredients and stir until sugar is dissolved. Pour sauce evenly over the meatballs. Bake at 350 for 45 minutes. Makes approximately 80 meatballs. You can also freeze the meatballs before you cook them. If you freeze them, bake at 350 for 1 hour.
