I followed the recipe closely, and used Sweet Baby Ray's bbq sauce following suggestion of a reviewer, and used apricot preserves instead of peach preserves, and Frank's Hot sauce. I tasted them out of the oven and they were quite salty. But later were not as salty when they sat in the sauce. I used McCormick's Cajun spice and went back to re-read that salt was the first ingredient. I will try a different brand Cajun next time or use less. The meatballs were delicious as an appetizer meatball, but did not taste Cajun at all with the sweet sauce. I recommend using a BBQ sauce with more kick or mesquite flavor instead, and I will try with peach preserves which may be less sweet. Quantity: I made 6 pounds of ground beef, and got about 160-170 appetizer meatballs (avg 26-30 meatballs for 1lb.)
