Crock Pot BBQ and Cocktail Meatballs

This past weekend Matt and I decided to have a few friends over to watch the ACC Championship game (a game we will NOT talk about in this blog.) Since it was mostly his guy friends coming over to watch the game I turned to my super simple, never fail man meal. BBQ.

And not just any BBQ. Throw it in the crock pot and be done with it kind of BBQ. Now this is my kind of meal. On top of BBQ, Matt put in a special request for cocktail meatballs. Another crock pot meal? Count me in. Thank goodness we have two crock pots!

Even though we are not talking about the outcome of the game, the food was amazing. If you are looking for a party side or a dinner you can put on and forget about for a couple hours while you do something else... this is your post.

Crock Pot Pulled BBQ

5 lb Pork Loin Roast

1 Bottle Favorite BBQ Sauce
Hot Sauce (optional)

Cut fat off pork loin. Place pork loin in crock pot. Pour BBQ sauce over pork loin (I also add hot sauce, which completely up to you and your taste). Make sure all of the pork loin is coated in sauce. Cook on high 6-8 hours. After about 6-7 hours, you will be able to take two forks and pull apart the meat. Once the meat is shredded it will absorb more of the BBQ sauce.

Crock Pot Cocktail Meatballs

2 Bags Frozen Meatballs
2 Jars Chili Sauce
1 Medium Jar Grape Jelly

Put all ingredients in crock pot. Cook on low for 4-5 hours or on high from 2-3 hours.

Enjoy and be prepared for leftovers! :)
(Don't forget to let your guest's know you slaved over it ALL day!)
