Moink faq
 
What kind on meatballs are you all using for your MOINK balls?

All the ones I could find were allready cooked. I was afraid since they were cooked, they wouldn't take any smoke. So I made mine from scratch. Easy recipe:

1 lb ground beef
1 lb ground pork
1 cup crushed saltine crackers
2 eggs
4 tsp BBQ rub (I looked up a meatball recipe and added the total amount of spices and substituted my BBQ rub)

Worked well

Looks great.

They look real good. I've only made them once and I used precooked frozen Italian meatballs.

From the reading I did prior to my maiden attempt today I think most everybody uses the frozen pre-cooked ones. By the way your balls look great. Oh my...:shock:

Your Moink Balls look great. How many did you get out of the recipe? Think you could use a pound of sausage instead of ground pork?

I got about 20, but could have gotten 30 if I made them smaller. Mine were a little big for an appetizer.

Don't know why you couldn't use sausage.

There's a slow hanging curve ball for someone to hit out of the park. I would, but the Bandit from PA would just start another vicious rumor.:lol:

Official MOINK Balls are made using pre-cooked Italian style meatballs.

You can use anything else you'd like but THE officially licensed MOINK Ball is done one way and one way only.

BTW: Your imitation moink balls look very nice...

I am pretty sure that they are banned from import into NY. Us using them would be like a Southerner making instant grits or pre made biscuits


I will take Mama Valentine's imitations anyday

I understand.

But you can't roast a chicken and call it a turkey just because you don't like turkey...

Norcoredneck 11-09-2008 07:58 PM

Sounds like Larry, the inventor of Moink is threatened by the use of fresh balls. :cool:
