Let's get grilling


1 Prepare grill for indirect cooking, placing pre-heated Kingsford® briquets on one side of the charcoal grate and leaving the other side of the grill cool. Add 2–3 chunks of your favorite smoking wood to the charcoal, place main cooking grate on the grill, and cover the grill until ready to use.
2 To prepare the MOINK balls, cut bacon slices into thirds and wrap each meatball with bacon. Secure bacon with a toothpick then dust meatballs with BBQ dry rub seasoning. Place MOINK balls on the cool side of the grill, cover, and allow them to cook for 20–25 minutes until the bacon is browned and crisp.
