Jerk Venison Meatballs

This weekend is a big weekend for American football with two teams battling for the title in the Super Bowl. Depending on your sentiments, you may or may not be attending a social gathering to watch the game. Regardless, these Venison Jerk Meatballs should be in your starting lineup.

They are slightly spicy, tangy, and delicious and a great way to use any ground game meat you have in the freezer. You can use the smoker, oven, or even pan fry them. Just combine all the ingredients and cook, its rather simple. Then, serve with your favorite dipping sauce.
