View Full Version : Moink Balls for Kids

So mom was out with her friends tonight and I had to feed the kids. I got them to help me grind some top round with the Kitchen-Aid and put them to work making moink balls. They were unimpressed until I pulled out the bacon. If you've never seen a 7-year old running around *screaming* "Bacon-wrapped meatballs? Have I gone to heaven?", you're missing out. (We all think it, but seeing someone else do it is awesome.)

I threw on some brined drummettes for good measure and made a tray of cut veggies and fruit as a side. All I can say is that they cleaned their plates.

It is to me. I try to get me children to help in the kitchen whenever I can. It always takes twice as long, but if you're in a hurry, you shouldn't be Q'n anyway.

This picture was taken at dusk and didn't come out very well, but back in March we did a pig and my daughter helped get him ready for the pit. She couldn't wait to try the meat she seasoned the next day.

I think it is important that my children know where their food comes from and what it is. My kids are young, but they will eat things that most of their friends wouldn't touch. I am proud of that.

I agree with ya brother. Most kids nowadays have no clue, in their eyes everything comes from the grocery store.

Getting them involved in preparing meals right from the basics is great way to build a strong future for those kids. Nice work!

How did you put together the cinder block cooker? Looks a lot easier than digging a pit in the ground!

Bevo,

I lived in Georgia and South Carolina for a while. They cook pigs on block pits. I liked it and that is how I cook them. I had grate made that fits my layout. A local welder charged my $86 (Materials and Labor) Then I bought 42 cinder blocks ($1.75 ea).

These pics aren't great, but you get the idea:

These pics are of an early attempt and are not that pretty. My technique is much improved since then. I entered my first "Whole Hog" comp in March and came in 14th out of 84. Not a bad first try in my book.
