    Another BBQ Pit Boys inspired meal I had done on Friday night. I made up some of their Fireball Whiskey Meatballs.

    Rolled out meatballs from 80/20 ground beef mixed with Tatonka Dust, minced garlic and Fireball Whiskey then wrapped in bacon, sprinkled with Jeff's Rub and onto the kettle at around 350 degrees indirect with a chunk of hickory. Injected with more Fireball 30 minutes into the smoke.

    This was a fun one and turned out great, however not as much of a cinnamon whiskey flavor as I expected, I will be injecting them with more next time!








    Thanks for looking!

    Thanks Al!

    I can't take credit for the idea, but I'm for anything involving smoked meat and whiskey.
    Thanks Case!

    As Richie said, ground cinnamon would do the trick probably more efficiently .

    Wow! That recipe looks like a lot of fun! Points!! I've used maple bourbon to glaze ribs, but never injected booze into anything!
