Yes, you read this perfectly correctly. That is what I’m calling these little jewels, and they come in pairs. Well, I’m sure you can eat just one, two, or more. It really depends on the size of the balls and your hunger.
These little treats are meant for an afternoon beer and snack with the guys … or, of course, ladies with carnivore tendencies who like the Devil’s Balls. I’m certain they can handle these stuffed delights.
Anyway, I made these for one of the knucklehead events recently as a little starter. They go perfectly with fire-pit and beers on an early spring evening.
It’s a little messy making them, assuming you have no problem using your base hands funding and shaping these beauties. It takes no more than 10-15 minutes to get them ready for the grill, and they only grill for 30-35 minutes.
What do you need for the Devil’s Balls?
Easy peasy – just a handful of ingredients to make these bite-sized balls. Enough for 3 adults. If you need more balls, increase the ingredients.
- 1lb of ground pork
- 2 tablespoons of garlic powder
- 2 tablespoons of paprika
- 2 teaspoons of chipotle chili
- 3 jalapenos, about 2 inches long
- Creme cheese
- Meat Church Holy Voodoo rub
Time to make some delicious jalapeño stuffed meat balls!
- In a large bowl, mix ground pork, garlic powder, paprika, and chipotle chili
- Remove the top (stalk) of the jalapeños, and cut them in half – lengthwise
- Remove the seeds and innards of the jalapeños
- Fill each half of jalapeños with a teaspoon of creme cheese.
- Take a handful of the ground mixture, and shape a patty.
- Place the jalapeño in the middle, and wrap the patty around the jalapeño
- Place each stuffed ball on a small grate, and sprinkle them with Holy Voodoo rub. Make sure to cover the entire ball with the rub.
- Heat your Traeger (or some other pellet grill imitation) to 300F
- When the grill is ready, place the meatballs in the grill, and grill them for 15 minutes.
- Flip the balls, and grill them for another 15 minutes
The Devil’s Balls are nice and firm and have a good kick to them. I guarantee they will succeed with the dinner party and flush them down with some cold Fat Tire beers. Actually, it would help if you dipped them in a nice Chili Con Queso smoked on the Traeger, of course.
