    Ok, so someone on here posted about doing something called a "pig balls" on here. i decided to try it for myself today. I bought some Italian sausage and beef  and a block of Velveeta and  pepper jack cheese. I also picked up some center cut bacon to wrap them in.


    I started by cutting up some Velveeta and pepper jack cheese and wrapping it in the sausage and beef and then the bacon.



    I then put them on 3 screens I use to smoke salts then put them into a 275 degree smoker with hickory going the AMNPS. I think I finally figured out how to keep that thing lite so that's good.




    Took about 4 hours in the smoker. It was in the teens for temp outside and it was pretty windy. The smoker temp hovered around 230 to 250 most of the time. I also finished them off in the oven just to try to crisp up the bacon.



    They were a hit!!! everyone gobbled them up and not too many of them left.  SOOOOOOOOOOOOO GOOOOD!!!!


    I think I'll be doing another batch for a super bowl party.  I personally liked the ones wrapped in beef better.

    I hope you guys like what I did. It sure was fun making them!!! Thanks for looking.

    What you've made are commonly called, "Moinks", around here. Short for "moo" and "oink". Good, aren't they?
