    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.
  5. Looks tasty, mind sharing the meatball recipe?
