Default dumb MOINK ball question

First off ill say that im a horrible cook and normally burn toast. I built my first UDS and want to cook some MOINK balls and a fatty this weekend to see how bad i can screw it up. I tried to search for the answer to this question but maybe its so dumb nobody else has had to ask it.

How do you know when the MOINK balls and the fatty are done? I can stick a thermo in the fatty but what temp do i pull it at? I assume the balls are too small to use a thermo. Do i just pull them when the bacon looks done?

When the bacon is done. The meatballs are precooked, so you are basically overcooking them, so the best part is the bacon and glaze (if you use one), so make those parts the best you can for the best experience.

The man with the top secret signature is right on with his advice on MOINK balls. For the fatty, you should cook it until the internal temp is at least 165.

Warning! Make at least twice as many MOINK Balls as you think you'll eat...and at least TWO fatties. Trust me on this.

Chunks, no. Chips, maybe (but usually not).
Don't worry - asking is the best way to learn what you wanna know.

Another tip - don't use colored toothpicks or you will end up with stained balls.........I'm just sayin.

And don't make falafel based MOINK balls or your kids will need therapy.

OK,....Here goes.

Are toothpicks part of the MOINK ball itself or simply a means to adhere luscious, juicy, delicious, bacon around the ball?

I know that it makes them handy as an appetizer holder, but must they be used for it to be a true MOINK ball?

They are not NECESSARY for them to be "authentic" - but they are pretty much needed for holding the bacon in place...if you find another way to keep the bacon on, please let us know. I guess you could use skewers....

Especially blue toothpicks. Blue toothpicks = Blue Balls.

When I wrap my MOINKS I put them on a skewer. I fit 5 on each one. Easy to handle and we can just grab a stick and relax.
