Place a 2 inch wide parchment strip across each mould of the muffin tin, coming up from each side by about 2 inches.
This will be used for unmoulding after they are cooked.
Using an ice cream scoop or a large spoon, generously fill each section of the muffin tin with meat, rounding the top to obtain a muffin shape.
Brush with BBQ sauce& bake in a preheated 350F oven for 15- 20 mins (or until meat thermometer reaches 160F), brushing occasionally with more BBQ sauce.
