Moink Balls & Pork Chops w/ Q-view

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 

Do ya put MOINKs under pork or beef??? confused.gif  I chose "pork" because of the chops that went along for the ride.


Actually, I found these chops in the clearance bin at the local market.  There were not quite enough for the family dinner, so I decided to make some MOINK balls to complete the meal (my first attempt at MOINK balls).  I seasoned the chops with salt, pepper, and brown sugar.  Here they are in the finished state.




I ground my own beef from a london broil cut, mashed a panade (bread & milk) to keep the meatballs moist, and mixed everything with Italian bread crumbs and pepper.  Of course -- the essence of the MOINK -- BAAAAACOOOON!  241.png  Held everything together with a toothpick.




Into a 250* smoker with ashwood for smoke.  The chops are behind the MOINKs.  On the top rack are some of the ingredients for my daughter's authentic smoked salsa for a little competition in her Spanish class.  I'll post that Q-view a little later tonight when we've done the final assembly & taste-testing.  439.gif


Pulled the chops and the MOINK balls out when they hit 165* internal temp.  I crisped up the bacon under the broiler for about 60 seconds a side.  The finished chops are shown in the first pic.




The MOINKs were a huge hit with dinner -- little heavenly bite-sized carnivore treats on a stick!  I will definitely add these to my appetizer repertoire along with ABT's and stuffed smoked mushrooms!


Thanks for looking!

Either my ISP or this website went wonky in the middle of my salsa post last night, & after much frustration, hissyfit.gif I gave up and went to bed.  I'm posting it right now.  Thanks for the interest and the kind words!
