Moink Ball Suggestion

Never made these before but we are having a block party so I figured what an easy appetizer to make for everyone.   What kind of rub should I use on them?

I have 
Dizzy Pig (DP) all purpose
DP Raising the steaks
DP Red Eye Express
DP Cow Lick
DP Shakin the Tree
DP Pineapple Head

Thoughts fellow eggers?  

Also, about how long should I smoke these for?  What wood should I use?  I have Maple on hand but can run out and get something different....

Thanks all!

    MOINK Balls, not Moink.

    I cooked them at an Eggfest last Saturday and used Dizzy Dust and a sweet bbq sauce and they were great.

    The meatballs are cooked, so you just smoke them at about 250-275 indirect until the bacon crisps up the way you want it.

    I used apple.

    Assuming you are using frozen meatballs, then as Duganboy pointed out they have been cooked already and you're just cooking the bacon to your liking.

    As for the rub, you're dusting mostly the bacon so IMO a rub that favors pork would be good. Of the rubs you've listed I'd go with the Dizzy Pig all purpose.

    I cook them indirect at around 280 over fruit wood (usually cherry or apple) for about 75-85 mins (bacon crisps) dip in BBQ sauce & return to the Egg for 5-10 mins for the sauce to set.

    Thanks all!  I was thinking the AP :)  Any how I should thaw the frozen meatballs first, right?

    You probably need to thaw in order to get the toothpicks through them. I just usually let them sit out for a while.

    Yep that is the perfect formula right there.
