Step 1

Add milk to panko bread crumbs in small bowl and let soak for 5 minutes or until softened. Add to pork and beef along with egg, cheese, shallots and BBQ seasoning. Mix using hands until well combined but be careful not to overwork mixture. Using hands or ice cream scooper measure out 12 servings and roll gently into balls (a little larger than golf balls). Place on foil lined baking sheet and place in oven. Turn on broiler and broil for 5 to 8 minutes watching closely until browned on top. Transfer to slow cooker.

Whisk together BBQ sauce and blueberry preserves. Pour half of mixture over meatballs. Cover and cook on high for 2 to 3 hours for low for 4 to 6 until meatballs are fully cooked through. Remove from slow cooker and toss with remaining sauce (discard any cooking liquid from crock).
