    The little Ms's wanted spaghetti and meatballs for dinner.

    I used,

    1lb ground chuck (80/20)

    1lb Jimmy Dean (sage)

    1 T onion powder

    1 T garlic powder

    2 T italian seasoning

    ½ oz soy sauce

    ½ oz moore's

    Then made them into little balls,

    And smoked them with RO lump, and Pecan (ofcourse)

    Adding cheese in the center is awesome. Wrapped in bacon would trurn them into some great moinks. Not sure if I would use them for pasta though.
