Bacon Wrapped BBQ Meatballs

This dish requires nothing more complicated than wrapping bacon strips around meatballs, securing them with toothpicks, brushing them with barbecue sauce, and grilling them for 30 to 45 minutes.

All that’s left to do is brush them with additional BBQ sauce once they’re through cooking and the bacon has sufficiently crisped.

Lane's Bacon Wrapped BBQ Meatballs

Meatballs are a standard party food. They are pretty easy and tasteful. But this recipe has taken a standard affair and carried it to the next level. Well, carried it up several levels to be honest. These are super flavorful and the glaze gives them a nice kick. Worth a try!

Instructions
 

  • Setup grill/smoker - on grill place chunks/coals on one side - heat to around 275-300
  • In a bowl add ground beef, diced onions, egg, panko breadcrumbs, and 2 tbsp Lane’s Spellbound Rub
  • Mix all together and make meatballs about 2 inches diameter or to the size you like.
  • Wrap each meatball with bacon using a toothpick to keep together.
  • Season bacon wrapped meatballs with Lane’s Spellbound Rub
  • Optional place a handful of cherry chips over chunks/coals when you are ready to place meatballs on.
  • Place meatballs on the side of the grill without the coals for indirect firing. If using a ceramic just place the meatballs on grate.
  • Cook for about 30-45 minutes or until internal temp reaches 150 
  • Pull meatballs and place in a foil pan or steamer pan and pour over Lane’s Lil Spicy BBQ Sauce. And place back on for 10 to 15 minutes. Ending internal temperature should be 155
    PRO TIP:
    Crock-Pot - I would consider chopping up the bacon and mixing it in with the Meatball or removing the bacon altogether.
