Part “moo” and part “oink” (beef+pork) MOINKs are beef meatballs wrapped in bacon. Simple appetizers like ABTs that can be used to fill in empty spaces in your smoker when BBQing.

  • 30 frozen pre-made beef meatballs, thawed
  • 1 (12-16 oz) package bacon
  • 1/4 cup dry rub

Wrap each meatball with a half slice of bacon. If you’re using thin sliced bacon you should use an entire slice. Use a toothpick to hold in place.

Uncooked MOINKs

Dust with dry rub and toss in your smoker until the bacon is done to your liking. I keep it in the smoker for an hour and then into the oven to get the bacon crispy. When they’re done, drizzle BBQ sauce over them before serving.


Makes 12+ servings as an appetizer.
