BBQ Party Weenies

My favorite food at a party is always the weenies!  They are always so warm and comforting sitting in that crock pot!  I'll make these even if I just want them to eat at home on a cold day.
Ingredients:
2 Packages Weenies (Or More. Depends on how big your crock pot is, and how many people you need to feed.)
3 Tbs Worcester Sauce
1 Tbs Garlic or 2 Minced Garlic Cloves or Garlic Powder
1 16oz Jar Grape Jelly
1 Bottle Chili Sauce
1/3 ish Cup Water (To rinse out the Chili Sauce Bottle)
Sometimes, to get a spicier flavor, my sister adds horse radish to it. I do not.
 Ingredients in the Crock Pot

I put the weenies in my crock pot. Then, I put in about 8 oz of the grape jelly in.  I pour in my bottle of Chili Sauce.  I put about 1/3 cup of water in the bottle, put the lid on the bottle, and shake it.  Then, pour the water into the crock pot.  Put in the Worcester Sauce and Garlic Powder.  Put on the lid and walk away.  I let this cook in the Crock Pot for a little over three hours.  Then, I opened it and stirred.

When the weenies and the sauce are done, they should look like this after they are stirred.  You can also use this same sauce with the frozen meatballs that a lot of people buy.  Some times, I even use this sauce when I'm making a batch of pulled pork.  I might amp it up a bit with more garlic, chili sauce, and I'll add a little bit of chili powder for seasoning.
If you're in a hurry, or don't have a crock pot, you can cook the sauce in the weenies on the stove in about twenty minutes, and they still taste pretty good.  I would recommend these BBQ Weenies for any party, whether it's a Birthday or Family Reunion!  These will definitely be a hit!

  1. I guess we have similar favorites, Heather. :P As much as possible, I want my BBQ weenies to be a lot spicier than how they should be. It all boils down to the sauce, I guess. Personally, not just on birthdays and family reunions, BBQ Weenies are perfect for any occasion! :)

    1. Dione, I made these for a couple functions, and I added Cayenne Pepper for the first time. It had some heat, and it was really good!
