Delicious morsels of beef and pork smoked to perfection. Drop them into a sandwich or put them on top of spaghetti, all covered with cheese!
- 1 pound ground beef
- 1 pound Italian sausage
- 1 egg
- 1/2C bread crumbs
- 1/2C parmesan cheese
- 1T sugar
- 1T fennel seed
- 2T Italian seasoning
- Chopped garlic to taste (I typically use about 4 cloves)
- Salt & Pepper to taste
- Crushed red pepper to taste
Mix everything together and form into balls. I typically go for quarter pounders, about 3-4″ in diameter. You can make them smaller, but watch your cook time. Once they hit 165, they are done.
Smoke at lowest setting on smoker for 2.5 hours, then turn the heat up to 400F and cook for 25 minutes to finish.
These are delicious! I have first hand knowledge 😊
