ABT's - MOINK Balls, etc. Hors d'oeuvres -- Qview!

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Doing some ABT's, MOINK Balls, and other misc. hors d'oeuvres. I'm getting hooked on ABT's....

The starting point:

Bacon, meatballs, shrimp, little smokies, cream cheese, jalapeno's, shredded cheese, toothpicks.

Came up with this little thing...a meatball stuffed with a shrimp. Just cut a hole in the meatball and shove the shrimp in.

Then of course wrap in bacon

Here are a few shrimp left over with a 1/2 piece of bacon.

Ready to smoke everything with a few shakes of rub - Got a few smokies wrapped in bacon as well. Some ABT's had little smokies in them, some had cut up shrimp.

I glazed the MOINK balls with a concoction I made up: apple butter, bbq sauce, chili sauce. I basted once during the smoke. It was actually a pretty good sauce.

And finished....2-1/2 hours later with maple wood.

I actually cored and deseeded the jalapeno's a day in advance and because of weather was not able to cook them - I had them soaking in water in a ziploc bag for a day 'cause the wife can't stand any heat - well this accidentally took all the heat out. So for anyone who wants to take the heat out of their jap's - this works.

Thanks for viewing!

Yum! Those looked awesome!

I may have to try the soaking thing for the kids...they love jalapenos, but they can't handle the heat yet.

Looks great, nice idea with the shrimp/meatball wrapped in bacon.
Good tip on the jalapenos, my sister thinks regular black pepper is spicy so she really can't take the heat.
Growing a no heat jalapeno plant this year but it won't be ready for a while so I'll have to try the soaking method.
