Ingredients

  • 3 tbsp diced onions
  • 1 egg lightly beaten
  • ½ cup unseasoned bread crumbs
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • ⅓ cup basil freshly chopped
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 20 3 inch long wooden skewers
  • 4 ounces fresh mozzarella cheese
  • ⅓ cup Kingsford® Original Smoked Hickory BBQ Sauce

Instructions

  1. Build a charcoal fire for indirect cooking using Kingsford® charcoal by arranging the coals on just one side of the grill and leaving the other side void. Preheat the grill to 400°F.

  3. Form about 20 meatballs using 2 tablespoons of the beef mix per meatball.
  4. Season the meatballs generously with Kingsford® Original Smoked Hickory BBQ Sauce.
  5. Place the meatballs over indirect heat and close the grill lid. Cook the meatballs for 10 minutes or until the internal temperature reaches 160˚F.
  6. While the meatballs cook, form a ball of mozzarella (1 teaspoon each) around each wooden skewer 1-inch from the end.
  7. Stick each mozzarella skewer into the top of each meatball.
  8. Close the grill lid and cook for an additional 2 minutes or until the cheese melts.
  9. Remove from the grill and serve.
