A girlfriend gave me the recipe over 25 years ago and I can't find it. Any of you have a tried and true recipe?
Everything is okay in the end, if it's not okay, then it's not the end.
That's one of those things you really don't need a recipe for. It's just ketchup or chili sauce and grape jelly. Put enough ketchup in with your meatballs (or whatever you're making) to glaze them, and add a few spoonfuls of grape jelly--until you're happy with the taste. Of course, you can add chopped onion, pepper, pickle relish, etc--but the whole point of the jelly bbq is it's simplicity, so I generally just use the 2 ingredients. It's alwasy a winner. I make bbq'd meatballs with the grape jelly sauce every summer with my summer school kids when we read Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs--and no matter how many meatballs we make, it's never enough!
Here's the only one I found online. I did not name the recipe. Not sure if you meant that one ingredient in the BBQ is grape jelly or you mean the old grape jelly/BBQ sauce mix that's served over cocktail weiners or meatballs.
My favorite "Keep It Simple Barbeque Sauce" recipe:
1 large jar of grape jelly
1 large jar of chili sauce
Cook in crockpot on low 4 hours. lol.

Here is my BBQ Meatball recipe
1 small jar grape jelly2 jars chili sauce2 bags frozen meatballs
Heat jelly and chili sauce in pan until jelly is liquid. Put meatballs in crockpot or pot on stovetop. Add sauce and cook 4 hours on low in crockpot or simmer on stovetop for 1 1/2 hours.
you can also put grape jelly in your spaghetti sauce...it helps cut the acidity...i do occasionally, if i think of it... the sour cream works for me...
