    I feel some success with my first attempt at Moinks. Even with my lack of experience they didn't end up too bad.

    I will do some things different next time. I will definitely make my own meatballs. The frozen ones that I used were really salty. I am a salt nut - so if I thought it was too salty for me it had to be way too much. I was lazy and used a pre-made Webber rub. That also may have contributed to the salt issue. I will use my own next time. 

    I did up some Lolipop chicken ( another first ) and some Buffalo wings as well. Got some work to do but on the right track.

    Ready for the Smoker

    Looks like a successful smoke [​IMG]

    I make my own meatballs too, There's just no comparison with fresh ground beef. And you can season them any way you like.

    Nice MOINKS! Definitely try making your own meatballs and another little trick I learned here, put a cube of your favorite kind of cheese in the center. I like to use the pepper jack cheese for a little bite. They literally dissapear, its amazing. The last three times I made them and took them to party's I literally only got one that I tasted right from the smoker to make sure it was done otherwise I wouldn't have had any.

    Thank you all for your tips and encouragement. I will try another batch soon and take the time to really do it up !

    I love Shooters cheese idea --- That has got to be good.

    One question I have --- Is there any particular bacon that seems to work well and is not too salty ? Also -- My bacon was not rubbery but it was not crisp at all. Is there a secret to getting the bacon nice and crisp ?

    Can't wait to get another batch going.

    :)

    I take it one step further and grind my own beef.  That way I can choose the quality of the cut and fat content.

    I like the cheese-in-the -center idea, Shooter1!
