TIPS

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.
