Looking for a scrumptious backyard BBQ party appetizer? These Grilled BBQ Meatballs are easy to make and will leave everyone complimenting your mad BBQ skills.

  • Prep: 30 mins
  • Cook: 1 hr
  • Yields: 2-3 servings


1/2 cup panko bread crumbs

1/3 cup milk

1 pound ground beef

4 cloves garlic, minced

2 tablespoons Code 3 Spices 5-0 Rub

1 teaspoon kosher salt

Cherry wood chips (optional)

Code 3 Spices Patriot Sauce


1Place the panko breadcrumbs and milk in a medium bowl, and let them soak for five minutes. Add the beef, garlic, rub and salt. Mix with your hands and shape into 18 meatballs. Set in a dish and chill for 30 minutes while you heat your grill.

2Heat your grill with an indirect heat zone to 300F degrees. Add cherry wood chips for more flavor.

3Place the meatballs on the grill, close the lid and grill for 30 minutes.

4Brush with BBQ sauce. Close the lid and grill for 15 minutes. Brush with more sauce. Close the lid and grill for 15 more minutes.

5Serve with bread, more sauce, onions and pickles.


You can make this dish with your favorite BBQ rub and sauce, but we’re huge fans of Code 3 Spices. The flavors offer just the right amount of heat and sweet, and a portion of every purchase is donated to first responders.

The dish, platter and pitcher pictured are from Le Cruset’s stoneware collection. The Rectangular Dish with Platter Lid works well for grilling because you can place your raw meat in the dish, and when your food is ready to come off the grill, you can use the lid as a pretty platter. The matching Sauce Jar allows diners to add even more sauciness to these balls. Both stoneware pieces are available in a variety of colors.
