The MOINK Ball is a beef meatball wrapped in Bacon, seasoned with a dry rub, smoked and then smothered in barbecue sauce. Simplicity is at the heart of this popular barbecue appetizer – cheap, easy to make and it’s easy to keep all ingredients on hand (and in the freezer). Best of all they taste fantastic!
The term MOINK Ball (yes, all capitalized) is just a mashup of MOO+OINK just like the appetizer. The name came from Larry over at The BBQ Grail, but he says he doesn’t try to take credit for being the inventor of Bacon-wrapped meatballs since he probably wasn't the first. Who hasn't tried to wrap Bacon around everything in sight?!
Feel free to some take liberties with the ingredients, because the taste goes well with anything from sweet to hot, Swedish to Greek to Italian, from tossed and sauced to just dry-rubbed. Whatever you do, don’t make just a few.
