My take on the MoinkBalls

Last Updated or created 2023-05-15

I love to BBQ, this is a favorite.

A MOINK Ball is a beef meatball wrapped in pork bacon, sprinkled with rub, smoked, and sauced .. so beef and pork .. hence the name Moo – oink balls.

Made this today .. but forgot to take some pictures.
Picture is from another date


500 grams of ground beef
40 grams Parmesan cheese grated
1 egg beaten
40 grams of breadcrumbs
100 ml of milk
1 tablespoon garlic finely chopped
1 teaspoon dried parsley
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
2/3 teaspoon dried oregano
2 packs of (smoked) breakfast bacon
barbecue rub 
barbecue sauce

For the balls

ONE of the following

    1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
    1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
    1/4 teaspoon chili powder
    1 jalapeƱo pepper, seeded and finely chopped


Mix the ingredients of the balls , except for the rub and sauce.
Sprinkle the meatballs with the rub.
Cool in the fridge.
Wrap a slice of bacon around the balls and secure with a cocktail stick. Put your MOINK Balls in the fridge for half an hour to stiffen.

I try to get my smoker at 110C.
Using Cherry wood (or apple), I let the balls hit a core temperature of 55C.
Brush the balls with barbecue sauce.
Remove from the smoker when 70C.

Spread the love
