Meatballs With Italian Sausage Smoked Hot

This is how hot Italian sausage meatballs are prepared in HEAVEN. When served as a tasty, tangy snack or appetiser at any gathering, these will be crowd-pleasers.


Everything is interchangeable, depending on your palate and preferences. Use whatever you want!

  • Johnsonville 3.5 lbs (or other brands of ground hot Italian sausage)
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons of Kosmo's Q Cow Cover Rub
  • 1/2 cup Panko Pork

OP-X1 Sauce from Kosmos OR your favourite BBQ sauce



To make these tasty treats, begin by combining the ingredients: in a large mixing bowl, break up the ground sausage and mix in the egg first. Then, thoroughly combine the seasonings and pork panko.

Once everything is combined, form into meatballs - preferably golf-sized, but do what you want! We like to skewer the meatballs at this point to make them easier to manoeuvre and rotate/flip.


Return the meatballs to the refrigerator while you prepare the pit. For this recipe, the smoker should be set to 275-300°F (135-150°C), with some cherry wood for added smokiness.

When the meatballs are ready, cook them over indirect heat with a water pan underneath to keep some moisture in the system. Rotate and flip the meatballs after about 25 minutes.


It's ready to go when the internal temperature reaches 160°F (71°C). The only thing left to do is glaze with your favourite BBQ sauce - we tried two meatball skewers with and two without OP-X. Return to the pit until the sauce has set.

I'll see you in the next recipe!
