Beef Meatballs Wrapped in Bacon (MOINKs)

I did a Google search today for bbq wrapped with bacon and discovered some pictures for MOINKs aka beef meatballs wrapped in bacon. MOINK stands for "MOO" and "OINK" (beef and pork).

I didn't follow any particular recipe, but here's a summary of how I made the tasty bbq treats.

Meatballs Wrapped in Bacon
  • 1 lb ground sirloin
  • 12 slices of bacon
  • 4 tablespoons of bbq rub
  • 3 tablespoons of breadcrumbs
  • 1 egg

  • Place the ground sirloin in a medium sized-bowl.
  • Add the breadcrumbs, bbq rub and one well-beaten egg.
  • Mix it together for 5 minutes by hand.
  • Form into meatballs roughly 1 3/4 inches in diameter.
  • Wrap them with bacon and secure with a toothpick.
  • Pre-heat grill to 350 degrees.
  • Grill the beef wrapped in bacon using indirect heat for 1 hour and check for doneness.
  • Cook until finished and sauce with your favorite bbq sauce during the last 5 minutes of cooking.
