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 jalapeño 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.
