The Dude's SSS Meatballs

post #1 of 30
Thread Starter 
Smoked, Sweet & Savory Meatballs. Fire It Up was talking about meatball recipies the other day and had me craving a batch myself. Perfect tasty and filling appetizer for football today. And I've got enough left over for sammies and what not later on.

2.5 lbs Ground Chuck
1 lb Fresh Ground Pork Sausage
1 sleeve Keebler Toasteds Onion Flavored Crackers
2 Large Eggs
2 TBS Soy Sauce
2 TBS Worchestshire Sauce
1/4 Sweet yellow onion
1 Crushed Clove Garlic
1/4 c. Bacon Bits (was supposed to be real bacon but realized I didn't have any)

I apologize, I'm not on my qview game today. Forgot to take a couple of pictures along the way.

Started by sauteing the onion and garlic in a little bit of oil. Threw the bacon bits in at the last minute.
(Sorry no pict of this)

Then everyone into a bowl for a good hand mixing

Rolled these into little balls about golf ball size.

Ended up with about 40 total.

Threw these on the WSM running about 275* for about an hour with a couple of small chunks of oak.

While they were smoking away I started the sweet sauce.
1/2 c. White Karo Corn Syrup
1.5 c. Ketchup
4 TBS Yellow Mustard
2 TBS Soy Sauce
1 TBS Worchestshire Sauce

Mix all ingredients in a pan on stovetop over medium heat. Heat just until it starts to bubble.

And there ya go. The Dude's Smoked, Sweet & Savory Meatballs. Hope everyone gives it a try. But I'll warn ya, the sauce is pretty darned sweet.

Thanks for checking out my latest smoke.

Glad the recent talk got you in the mood to smoke some goodness PDT_Armataz_01_34.gif
Sauce sounded good but you know what makes everything better...some chipotle! Bet that would have worked great in the sauce with the sweetness.

Thanks pal, everything is better with bacon!

Do it! They are really good. I use the same recipie for my meatloaf.

You're welcome. I'm not a fan of hot stuff, so the sweet is good.

Thanks for bringing this up. Yeah, I figured you'd need to add some heat to them.
