It’s Gameday, and you are about to serve Moink balls to the crew. What are Moink balls, you ask? That’s easy: “Moo” + “Oink” 🙂 So, in this case, it’s a bacon-wrapped meatball. In this video, Steve shows you how to prep them and then slow cook them on a Weber kettle.

All you have to do is take frozen Italian meatballs, wrap them in bacon, stick a toothpick through them to hold them together, dust them lightly with your favorite BBQ rub, smoke them for 1 1/2 – 2 hrs and finally baste them with your favorite BBQ sauce about 10-15 min before pulling them off the cooker.

Tricks

There are a couple tips I can provide for this recipe. First, you’ll need to zap the meatballs in the microwave for 45 seconds or so to get them just thawed out enough to where you can get the toothpick through them.

Second, you only need 1/2 a strip of bacon per meatball.

Finally, you need to cook them until the bacon feels/looks crispy.  If you pull them off too early the bacon will be soggy and just gross.
