Default Need recipe for party meatballs

We went to a new home shower today. There were some meatballs in a sauce warming in a chafing dish. The lady who was giving the shower said the woman who made them uses frozen meatballs, cooks them in water, and didn't do anything else. They magically made this amazing sauce. The woman who cooked them told my husband, "you just make regular meat balls, then put them in grape jelly, mustard, brown sugar, and Texas Pete, then cook them in the crock pot. I have searched and searched and can find every conceivable combinations of ingredients except these. Has anyone ever made them using Texas Pete instead of chili sauce or barbecue sauce? Thanks for any help.

Yes ma'am - we had the grape jelly meatballs AND grape jelly Little Smokies every Sunday at our church lunch when I was growing up in Bryan, TX.

I've never heard of Texas Pete. We typically did equal parts grape jelly and BBQ sauce. I know it sounds hideous to non-Texans, but I promise they are divine.

This is a good authentic recipe: Cooks.com - Recipe - Smokies In Sauce

Smile Thank you

I've printed this off. I make these every year for our Christmas dinner, but a whole different recipe. Will try this one. Thanks for taking the time to respond.
