The Spicy Barbecue Kielbasa can be served in a bowl with toothpicks on the side or individually on a plate. These kielbasa are a bit sticky and have quite a bit of sauce. I would make sure you have extra napkins available near them. I had to spray and wash John’s shirt after he lost control of a piece and it rolled down the front of his shirt.

I hope you enjoy the Spicy Barbecue Kielbasa. Let us know if you try the recipe in the comments below.

    These are awesome. Sliced them a but thinner and put them on Hawaiian Mini Sub Rolls! Can you say AWESOME!!! Thanks for the great recipe it will stay around for along time at my house. Can not wait for the next potluck at work!

  2. Suzanne says

    Is there any way to skip the bourbon and replace it with something non-alcoholic? I’m sure the flavor is amazing, but I have a few absolute non-drinkers to feed.

    I like that the sauce isn’t just sweet on sweet. The mustard and hot sauce would help cut through the sugar and fattiness. This may come with me to an annual Christmas potluck. Thanks for sharing.

    Jen and Suzanne,
    When you cook with alcohol, the alcohol part of it dissipates within a few minutes, only the great flavor is left,
    your guests will never know its in there unless you tell them, I would not skip it, it’s where the flavor in this dish is but there’s no REAL alcohol left after cooking this long, it’s like the Jack Daniels sauce at TGI Fidays, if they didn’t name it, you’d never know it was there…just thought you might ot know this, I’ve been cooking over 40 years.

      It’s actually a myth that ALL the alcohol cooks off. While most of it does, alcoholics and those that have medical conditions that cannot have alcohol should not have anything that contains any alcohol. It’s not worth the risk to add some flavor.

  5. Justina says

    I am pregnant and read the alcohol doesn’t completely burn off. But I read u can replace it with 1 or 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract.

  6. Melisa says

    Yes it is a myth that alcohol burns off during cooking. If you have any alcoholics or allergies to alcohol they should not have anything cooked in alcohol. My father is a recovering alcoholic. It’s like giving a diabetic a large regular soft drink when they ordered diet. You could cause major problems. I’m a retired registered nurse that have spent many years working with alcoholics. It’s not worth a little “flavor”!

  7. Cindy says

    Was invited to a friends house for a “girls nite” so I decided to bring these ….than god I cut the recipe in half cuz it made a ton! However no one liked it……..went in the garbage at the end of the nite…not only was it a disappointment , but a waste of money too!
