This recipe is one of the tastiest appetizers you can cook up on your grill for your next tailgate or watch party. Replace the Italian sausage with ground beef, pork, chicken, or turkey and jack up the flavor with your favorite BBQ seasoning like Oakridge BBQ Santa Maria, EAT Zero to Hero, or Fast Eddy’s All Purpose rub. You can also substitute a variety of cheese.
1 lb Italian sausage
3 cups biscuit mix
1 egg, lightly beaten
2 tsp minced garlic
4 cups shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
1⁄4 cup milk
1/4 cup of your favorite BBQ seasoning or rub
Set your grill/smoker for indirect cooking at 350°F/177°C.
Combine all ingredients in a large glass mixing bowl. Use your hands to mix the ingredients together.
Form the mixture into balls, approximately 1” in size, and place on a BBQ Butler silicone mesh grill mat.
Place the meatballs directly onto the grill grate of your smoker or grill. For best indirect results, use the Big Green Egg with plate setter, Good One cooking chamber, or Weber Smokey Mountain.
Cook for 15-20 minutes.
