Just saw this recipe posted on facebook and thought it could be improved a little by smoking.






AHA!!!!! Summer time is here and that means camping and bonfires!!! Love compact meals!!! Don't forget to share this with your friends so you can find it easily!!!!


large onions
ground meat (I prefer turkey!!)
seasonings to taste (mine were like meatloaf tasting!!)
tin foil

1. peel your onions and cut them in half as equally as possible.
2. Prepare your meatballs how you want them-- I used italian seasoning, oregano, chili powder, minced garlic, ketchup, worcestershire sauce and some bread crumbs
3. Size your meatballs so that they can be squished between two pieces of onions. Some meat will push out the ends and that is okay!!! Just make them as compact as possible!!
4. wrap each onion bomb in tinfoil-- might want to double them since they'll be tossed in the fire! Make sure not to poke holes in the foil!!
5. toss in the fire and try to get them in the coals.
6. cook for about 10 minutes, flip em around and cook another 10 minutes or so!!!

  Interesting.. Maybe try smoking without the foil. Can't hurt to try!

I like the bacon idea. Might have to pin it together with some tooth-picks or maybe a little string.

My sister brought these out camping and they were great! Wrapped in bacon and smoked would be a terrific twist.

You need to hit 165IT for ground meats, correct?

Great idea but I need that meat pretty well done for my liking.

Sounds good.

Yes, and I think the Bacon would get burnt if it was in foil right in the coals for long enough to cook the ground meat to 165*.


I would leave these the way MisterDK did them, or put them on the grill & smoke them, with or without Bacon.



Great Post, MisterDK !!!

I saw this post again and remembered that there is a recipe for BBQ Onions in the Marlboro cookbook " Morning Fires and Evening Lights" (or something like that) .


A similar way of doing your recipe... a great choice for a Smoke Job...icon_exclaim.gif


Thanks for the memory , and as always . . .

I'm interested trying wrapped in bacon and smoked. Anyone have an idea of time to smoke?

Made these in the smoker for Superbowl.  They took 2.5hrs at 225deg and I used Pecan wood chips.  They were fantastic.
