Perfect Pork Meatballs


  • 2 1/2 lbs Pork Shoulder
  • 1/2 lb Bacon
  • 10 Sweet Cherry Peppers
  • 1/4 cup Hot Chili Pepper Juice
  • 1 lb bread (the drier, the better)
  • 4 eggs
  • 4 tbsp Cattleman's Grill Tri-Tip Seasoning


Using a good boning knife, cube up 2 1/2 pounds of pork shoulder. Place in a large mixing bowl. Cut up 1/2 pound of bacon, place in bowl with pork shoulder. Combine the cherry peppers, chili pepper juice, eggs, bread, and Cattleman's Grill Tri-Tip Seasoning into the bowl. Mix well.

A handful at a time, put the mixture through a meat grinder.

Once the mixture is fully ground, roll out the meatballs and place them in a buttered foil pan.

Preheat your Yoder Smokers YS640 (or other grill) to 400°F. Cook the meatballs for 15 - 20 minutes or until the internal temperature is 170°F (use the Maverick PT-75 thermometer for fast and accurate temperature readings). Serve and enjoy!
