Default MOINK ball calzone

Tonight I offer up what will be an entry for the "surprise inside" throwdown, but will not go in the 2010 MOINK ball challenge. I'm starting with the disclaimer so BBQ Grail doesn't start sending me nastygrams about breaking competition rules.

It all started with traditional MOINK sprinkled with some Cajun and Italian seasoning mixes.



The MOINK balls went on Bubba Ho-Keg for about 90 minutes and were removed without the usual glaze since there would be sauce in the calzone.



I made up a batch of basic recipe bread dough from "Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day", tossed it into a pizza dough shape, and covered with some homemade pizza sauce, shredded cheese (this was a Mexican blend, because thatís what was in the refrigerator), MOINK balls, sliced onion, and sliced mushrooms.



This all got folded up, the edges pinched together, and thrown on the cast iron pizza pan that had been sprinkled with some corn meal. After about 30 minutes, it was ready to eat.



The crust didnít brown up as much as I would have liked; this was likely due to not getting the temperature back up as high as the recipe called for (450įF) before putting it on the grill. It didnít seem to affect the taste much though, these were pretty good (and very filling).



Since I had sauce leftover and still had plenty of dough, I made up a second calzone using leftover pulled pork instead of MOINK.



It looks pretty tasty, but I wonít know until tomorrow as I am way too stuffed from eating the MOINK calzone.

What's the difference between a strombolli and a calzone?

I have no idea. You'll have to ask someone who is Italian. Or from Chicago.

Awesome creation! I'm still thinking on this one.
Italian roomate in college never stopped talking about this type of thing.
Calzone=sauce on the side
Stromboli=sauce inside rolled crust

I guess in that case this was technically a stromboli. This is what comes of growing up without sufficient Italian upbringing...

That's really inventive. I'm impressed. It shows clearly that a MOINK ball can also be an ingredient... an AWESOME ingredient. First came the MOINK ball, then the MOINK ball timpano, and now the MOINK ball calzone... What's next???
