Smoked Sausage Balls over Fogo Lump Charcoal
TUESDAY 01.24.2017



Combine all ingredients (except for maple syrup). If the mix is too dry, add your milk. If you do not have any milk, it’s still ok. The milk doesn’t make a huge difference, but it does make the balls puff a little more. Start forming your sausage balls using a melon baller or a large spoon. I make mine about the same size as your standard golf ball.

Sausage Balls Ingredients and Preparation

Set your smoker up for indirect heat and shoot for a temperature of 325 degrees, using your Fogo Premium Lump Charcoal. It really is the best on the market. Add a chunk of pecan wood to your hot coals and get the smoke rolling. Just before you toss them on the heat, sprinkle with a little more Lane’s BBQ Ancho Espresso Rub.

Once on the heat, these will cook quickly. These went for about 30 minutes. If you want to check them with an instant read thermometer, look for 165 degrees.

After about 25 minutes, they will start to turn a dark shade of brown and swell just a little. This is from the Bisquick puffing up a little.

If you want to, give them a little brush with the maple syrup. If not, you can just use it as a great dip for these hot sausage balls. They are really addicting. Try and eat just a dozen!

Delicious Sausage Balls Ready to Eat!

This Lane’s Espresso Rub is a perfect compliment for the spicy breakfast sausage. The flavors pair perfectly. Enjoy!

Awesome charcoal for the Weber kettle

Always a great product

Great product at a great price. The Santa coal bag was a super nice touch! Great gift idea.

Again, Best in Show

Second review of the Super Premium. I cannot emphasize enough how much this stands above the competition. I like and respect other premium brands like Jealous Devil but there is nothing out there like this product. I’ve converted 3 die-hard Big Green Egg charcoal buyers to this product and they agree it is better than anything they have ever used. NEVER buy a big box brand like Cowboy again...this is the best ever. Big chunks (that you sometimes have to break down to manageable size on your own!) and great natural, all-purpose smoky flavor.

FOGO Super Premium Lump Charcoal (35lbs)

Excellent charcoal

The medium size bricks are the best for most standard use. They heat up fast and also last long enough for a slow smoke.
