Cranberry Meatballs

Carole said, "I made these meatballs for our friends 40th wedding anniversary and they were the hit of the bash (party).  They're easy to make and plenty of them.  I hope your readers will enjoy them also.  I know I've got a hit on my hands. 

2 - 3 pounds frozen meat balls (I used 38-oz. - Marcella)
12-oz. jar chili sauce
16-oz. can jellied cranberry sauce
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon thyme leaves
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
2 tablespoon red wine vinegar
2 tablespoons soy sauce

Combine all ingredients except the meatballs and mix well in a large bowl.  Pour over meatballs and heat in a large pan, roaster, or crock pot.  Serve hot with toothpicks.
