Cool Moink Ball question

I am doing my SIL (sister in law) a favor and cooking for her boyfriends birthday. She has requested a large order of moink balls and I just have a questions with cooking these. I have to work the day they need them for so I am coming home on my lunch to fire up my smoker and my wife is going to put them on at the appropriate time. Any tips on putting a large amount on the smoker with ease? I thought about putting them on in disposable aluminum pans but fear an over accumulation of bacon grease and the bacon no crisping properly. Any suggestions are appreciated.

poke some holes in the aluminum pan so the grease will drain.

Not as large as some catering orders but a full bag of metballs from sams and she also is having me wrap little smokies in bacon and cook them. Not sure of the exact amount but they are the bulk sizes.

If you can, get one of these. You will be thankful many times in the future that you did.

I just throw them on the rack - putting them in a pan will just let them sit in grease (bad) unless you take Cajun's suggestion. I like the smoker basket - may need to invest inone of those....

Unless you poke a gazzillion holes in the pan, I wouldn't recommend that. Putting them on the grates is easy, just "pour" them on top. All the toothpicks wouln't be standing straight up if you can live with that! I too, like the looks of that round smoker basket. Where can I get one?

I think I picked mine up at Ace Hardware, but I may have ordered it online from somewhere. I got it a few years ago, and it is still holding up well. Here is a link to some hits on Froogle, and here is a thread I did a few weeks back where I used the basket and have some pics of it.

I usually just put them on the rack and let the grease drain. If have the room, fit a raised cooling rack, over some of the MOINK and create a second level.

Bout 1 1/2 hours or until the bacon is cooked (the frozen meatballs are fully cooked).

Forget to post pron if ya haven't been certified by Ron L, then quietly thank Trp Fox for invention!

Skewer them. The bacon will stay on after unscewering. Then just put a tub of toothpicks next to them for self serving.
