So, I know that OFFICIALLY you are to use pre-cooked, frozen italian meatballs. I was at Kroger yesterday and bought some frozen meatballs, and they had 3 varieties. They had italian meatballs, sweedish meatballs, and homestyle meatballs. I had not yet read the "italian" stipulation, but I know that the M in MOINK stands for MOO. So I looked at the back of the package, knowing that Italian sausage is made with pork. Sure enough, first ingredient on the Italian meatballs was Pork, then Beef. Same for the Sweedish ones The Homestyle ones, however, read Beef, then Pork. So I bought those.
Is there a certain brand that has all-beef italian style meatballs? If so, next time I'll get that so that I can try actual MOINK balls. As it stands, this weekend I'll be smoking some homestyle meatballs wrapped in bacon to see how they are.
Gonna do it on my first UDS build to "break it in" so to speak.
90 minutes or so at around 225 is what I read, so as of now that's the plan.
Nothing beats food cooked over a fire. ever.
