Default MOINK Balls on Serious Eats

Just ran across this on the serious eats site: Grilling Moink balls

Their Food Lab section has some great info - not really BBQ related but great info. Just figured I would share (not affiliated, etc).

I have to say I did a bunch of MOINKS over the holidays and I wasn't impressed. I used store bought meatballs that were Italian meatballs and I think that was my mistake. I want to try it with some homemade meatballs that I know I like next.

Store bought, frozen balls suck. Gotta make them from scratch.

Correct, you wrap meatballs with bacon, season and smoke. I do 275 until the bacon is crispy. I dont really worry about the meat ball drying out. Hit it with sauce when they are done.

I have been churning out finger foods recently as a learning exercise, though my family is fast becoming addicted. I may be pressed into service more than originally intended...

I have only used homemade meat balls for the Moinks and was fairly pleased with the results. However, next to ABT's, pig shots (and even more so, Chorizo Shots) the Moinks seemed a little bland. One of my twin daughters suggested stuffing the meatballs with a pungent cheese and/or a jalapeño slice. Anyone gone this way before?
