BBQ Moink Balls Recipe
- 2 lbs. ground beef
- ¾ C fresh breadcrumbs
- 2 large eggs
- 2 tsp minced garlic
- 1 lb. slices of bacon, cut in half
- 1/3 C Grilla AP Rub
- 1 C Grilla BBQ Sauce
Combine ground beef, breadcrumbs, eggs and garlic in a big bowl. Mix together all ingredients with your hands and roll mixture into balls approximately 1 inch in diameter.
Wrap each meatball with half a strip of bacon, secure with a toothpick. You may also add several of these to a skewer if you want to save some toothpicks. Coat generously with the rub. Heat your Grilla to about 275 degrees.
You can of course cook these at a lower temp if you have plenty of time, or at a higher temp if you need them done faster. Cook until the meatballs are at an internal temp of 160 degrees and the bacon is done. If you opted to use store-bought meatballs, you are basically just cooking until the bacon is done. During the last 10 minutes of cooking, coat the moink balls with your barbecue sauce. If you want your moink balls to have a sweeter finish, cut the barbecue sauce with a little grape jelly. Once you pull the moink balls off the grill, you can dust with the remaining dry rub.
