Not a MOINK Ball

“This is Not a MOINK Ball”. Why not? it looks like one? That's right. Yet it isn't! In the post above I'll explain you why and for what reason we shouldn't call this a “MOINK Ball”. Yet it's an ode to the legendary BBQ snack worth tasting!

Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 1 hour
Total Time 1 hour 5 minutes
Servings 6 balls


  • 6 Liège Balls Lidl (or other premade balls)
  • 6 slices bacon
  • 150 ml asian style bbq sauce (vitasia) or sweet and sour sauce
  • 1 lemon for the juice
  • 1 spring onion
  • fried onions at taste


  1. Prepare your smoker for an indirect session at low temperature (100°C). For this recipe I've used the Traeger Ironwood with Pecan Pellets
    When using another type of BBQ you might need a heat deflector and add some chunks of smokewood to the coals. 

  2. While the BBQ is getting temperature. Mix the lemon juice with the asian BBQ sauce. When using a different type of BBQ sauce taste for the right balance.

  3. Roll the balls in the sauce you've made and wrap them in a slice of bacon. Skew with a toothpick and roll them a second time in the BBQ sauce. 

  4. Put the "Not a MOINK Balls" on the grid and smoke them at low temperatur for 1 hour. Use the supersmoke on your pellet grill for extra flavor. The balls are ready when the sauce sticks to the balls.

Finish with some sliced spring onions and fried onions at taste. Have a nice meal!
