Sweet, smoky and savory, these sausage appetizer bites are a cinch to throw together at the last minute. Just throw some smoked sausage on the grill, slice and toss with the fresh homemade raspberry barbecue sauce for the ultimate crowd-pleaser.
Preheat grill to medium. Puree raspberries, maple syrup, vinegar, mustard and paprika in a food processor. Transfer to a small saucepan and bring to a simmer over medium heat, stirring often. Cook, stirring occasionally, until thickened and shiny, 3 to 4 minutes.
Grill sausage, turning often, until heated through and charred in spots, 6 to 7 minutes, or according to package instructions. Slice into 30 rounds and transfer to a large bowl. Add the barbecue sauce and toss to coat. Transfer to a serving platter. Skewer with toothpicks to serve.
To make ahead: Prepare barbecue sauce (Step 1) up to 1 day ahead and refrigerate. Warm through before tossing with sausage.
