I know that it's been a while since I last posted a cook,but I've been busy trying to keep my head above water :pinch: Anyway,I received a free sample from The Rub Co,so I decided to try it out on some cheap meat first :P I used ground chuck,stuffed with mozzarella cheese.Then I rubbed them with Santa Maria style rub.They were a pretty good snack for me and Carson this afternoon :woohoo: These were cooked on the mini at about 300* with some apple wood.I know that the pics aren't great,but my dslr is on the fritz,so I'm stuck with my little point and shoot :pinch:










"Little Big'un" (Cameron) even came out to enjoy the beautiful weather and hang out with daddy :)


Thanks for lookin,and have a great weekend B)

    How long did you leave those on? Those are some large balls as have already been referenced. ;)

    Hey Scott,I left those "large balls" on there just long enough to get to 160* internal temp.Maybe an hour(3 beers)or so :whistle: :laugh:

    Now those are what I call meatballs!!

    Last month some of my buddies made sausage that had high temperature cheese in it. It was my first home made sausage with this cheese and I am really hooked. During the first sample we all realized how neat this stuff would be in meat balls, meatloaf or just in hamburgers. Here is what it looks like, it gets really soft, but not runny. (oh, the green stuff in there are roasted green chiles)

    Happy Trails

    That looks delicious :woohoo: I need to try a higher temp cheese to keep the leaking to a minimum :ohmy:

    Imagine the ratio stayed the same on your balls and that were an Xl instead of a mini! Lil Big'un is looking cool!
