View Full Version : Sandwich Throwdown Entry: MOINKwich!

02-09-2010, 12:38 PM
Since the vaunted MOINK certification thread is dead, I thought I'd at least post the results of my first ever MOINK cook as a lead-in to my Sandwich Throwdown entry.

I started with ground chuck, and added bread crumbs, dried onion, garlic powder, chipotle paste, brown sugar and cayenne pepper. The meat was rolled into balls, wrapped in store-bought bacon and dusted with Dizzy Pig rub.

It was a beautiful day for cooking - rainy and 44*.


The MOINKs cooked at 275* over heavy hickory smoke for an hour and a half. 30 minutes before the end I gave them a dunk in some BBQ sauce.


Here's the final product:


For my next act, I got a sub roll and filled it to the brim with MOINKS and a little extra sauce. I topped it with pepper jack cheese and popped it back on my now 450* grill to get all crispy and melty.


For my final act, I topped it with cold slaw and partnered it with some lightly smoked-roasted tots that were dusted with Cajun seasoning. Behold...the MOINKwich!


It was a mighty beast. It took 4 of us to eat it all.

Now where is that Throwdown thread...

Thanks everyone! Consider it my tribute-in-meat to the forum. I've learned so much from you guys.

The sandwich was pretty incredible. It was a lot of fun except now I'm tired and my chest hurts. :-D

I think you've started a new craze! I can see everyone having a go at this! Including me!

Well it would be the highest honor for my sandwich to achieve the same sort of status that surround ABTs, fatties, MOINKs, piggles and all the other crazt bacon-wrapped chit you guys have introduced me to!

In all seriousness, thanks a lot guys. I'm interested to see what y'all can add to this crazy concept.
