The Spicy Barbecue Kielbasa can be served in a bowl with toothpicks on the side or individually on a plate. These kielbasas 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.

Hi! I first tried this about six months ago, and now I make it every week – it’s that good, and that easy!! Thanks so much for sharing. <3

If I’m allergic to mustard seed will it make that much of a difference to cut it from the recipe? Any suggested substitutions?

Thank you for the great idea! I made this for our crockpot lunch at work and everyone loved it (I work with all men, so anything with meat is usually a win). I used American Honey Bourbon, stone ground mustard (no creole mustard in my area), and used this sauce amount for 4lbs of kielbasa.

We made these for our church small group meeting about 2 weeks ago and loved them so much we’re making them for Thanksgiving! Really great sauce; hubby can’t wait to put some on his turkey.

I just made this for my sisters baby shower and it turned out great and everyone loved it. I was nervous to try this after I read a few bad reviews, but I loved it and will definitely make this again. I didn’t have bourbon so I used sherry. Also, I personally like it when it is more of a glaze so I may cut the sauce in half next time.

Hi, is there another substitute for the mustard, cant find creole mustard here.. any ideas of a substitute??

Thank U!!

Sadly, I have to agree. It wasn’t good. I cringed when I thew it out and prayed my hubby didn’t notice. I’m not sure what went wrong here.

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”!

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.

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.

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.

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.
Thanks,
Suzanne

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!
