Smoked Meatloaf Balls

We love how these meatballs turn meatloaf from a sit-down meal to a walk-around snack—perfect for parties and game day. The glaze is a mixture of ketchup and our Original sauce, allowed to mingle with smoke in the last few minutes of cooking.



1 tsp. of Head Country Championship Seasoning, The Original
1/4 C. of Head Country Bar-B-Q Sauce, The Original
2 pounds of 90/10 ground beef
1/4 C. of ketchup
1 tsp. of black pepper
1 egg
3/4 C. bread crumbs
1/2 medium yellow onion, diced

Cooking Instructions

Preheat your grill or smoker to 225 degrees F-275 degrees F.

Combine the Championship Seasoning, black pepper, egg, bread crumbs, and onions with the beef.

Form the mixture into balls. These should be about 2 inches in diameter.

Add meatballs to the grill or smoker.

Meanwhile, mix the BBQ sauce and ketchup together.

Once the internal temperature of the meatballs reaches 140 degrees F, brush the sauce mixture over the surface of the meatballs. Close the lid of the grill or smoker.

Remove the meatballs from the cooker once the internal temperatures hit 160° degrees F. Allow the meatballs to rest for about 10 minutes. Enjoy!
