BBQue Can Meatballs

Items Needed

  • Universal BBQueCan™
  • Your favorite meatball recipe (or buy prepared from your butcher or grocery store)
  • Seasoning or salt and pepper

Directions

Preparation

  1. Form meatballs and season with your favorite seasoning or salt and pepper. We recommend golf ball size meatballs for best results.
  2. Place the meatballs in the BBQue Can. You can fill it up completely.

    Meatballs will drip a lot of water/grease, so please follow these directions:

Gas Grills

  1. Set the BBQ Can on the grill but no directly over a lit burner in order to avoid flare-ups. Leave one burner off and turn the others to medium/high heat.
  2. Rotate every 20 minutes. It can take 60-90 minutes to get the meat to 150° internally.

Charcoal Grills

  1. Move charcoal to one side of the grill and leave it there after lighting. Set the BBQ Can on the opposite side of the charcoal on a grill so it does not drip on the charcoal.
  2. Rotate every 20 minutes. It can take 60-90 minutes to get the meat to 150° internally.

Vertical Smokers (e.g. Barrel House)

  1. It is suggested to use a drip pan set on the H-Frame or grate at the bottom level. Hang the BBQ Can from the top or lay it on a grate at the middle level.
  2. Rotate every 20 minutes. It can take 60-90 minutes to get the meat to 150° internally.

Smokers

  1. Lay the BBQ Can on the grate. Rotate every 30 minutes. It can take 1-2 hours to get the meat to 150° internally.

Serving

  1. Once finished cooking, serve them up or add them to another recipe!
