Bacon Wrapped BBQ Meatballs

Bacon Wrapped BBQ Meatballs

These Bacon Wrapped BBQ Meatballs were a big WIN at my kitchen table!  Not only that, but my son dug in and took charge of prepping them.  

Start with 1 lb ground beef and 1 lb ground pork.  Or 2 lbs ground beef.  Or 2 lbs ground pork.  Or really mix it up and go 3:2, beef to pork.  However you want to fly!  
Add meat to bowl and season to your liking.  We added kosher salt, pepper, onion powder and a new Kansas City seasoning we hadn’t broke out yet.  Form into balls, keeping them consistent in size.  That’s the key to even cooking. 
Wrap a strip of bacon around each meatball and secure with a toothpick.  Or cut bacon in half to stretch out the bacon supply.  
Heat smoker/grill to 350°.  Place meatballs on a wire rack and cook for 35-40 minutes.  After 30 minutes, dredge each meatball in your favorite BBQ sauce and finish cooking for another 10 minutes and there you have it!  Deliciousness!
