    | 1. Combine all ingredients except pasta sauce in a large mixing bowl and mix thoroughly. | 2. If using charcoal- build your fire and make it low-medium heat, about 225-250°F Coat the grates with oil or non-stick spray. | 3. Shape mixture into balls slightly smaller than a baseball, but bigger than a golf ball and then set them aside. UPDATE: I started using a 1/4 cup measuring cup to scoop the mixture and it makes the meatballs just the right size. | 4. Pour half of the sauce in a grill (oven) safe stock pot or roasting pan that will be large enough to hold all the meatballs. Place the pot/pan on the grill away from the direct heat when the fire is ready. | 5. When the grill is ready place the meatballs directly over the heat and sear on both the top and bottom for 3-5 minutes per side. | 6. When you are done searing the meatballs, place them away from the direct heat (I have a top rack on my grill and place them here). | 7. Let them cook for 5-8 more minutes or until the meatballs are firm, but not fully cooked and then place all the meatballs in the pot/pan and place that directly over the heat source. | 8. Cook for an additional 8-10 minutes or until the internal temperature reaches 155-160 degrees F (you could also cut a meatball in half to make sure that the meat is no longer pink in the middle). | ---------------------------------------------------------------------------
