Here’s Daves video instructions as featured above.

Top and tail the onion, peel off the outer skin and then gently slice through the first layer of onion.

Carefully peel it off, keep it in one piece so it doesn’t lose its shape. Dice remaining onion to add to the beef filling.

Mix together the following:

  • 500g Ground Minced Beef
  • Diced Onion
  • Spice Mix
  • 2 Teaspoon of Worcester Sauce
  • 1 handful of Chopped Parsley

BBQ Meatball Onion Bombs Instructions

  • Using your hands, pack the meat into the onion skin until it is full and solid. Pat down the top and bottom to ensure a smooth round shape.
  • Now it’s time for the bacon. Firstly, wrap a rasher fully around the onion. Repeat this from top to bottom so the bacon covers the meat.
  • Continue doing this with 3-4 rashers until the whole onion is covered.
  • Repeat on the other onion and if required secure everything in place with a couple of cocktail sticks. These are great for using to pick up the bombs later on the plate.
  • For the first stage, we’re going to smoke these for an hour at 230F/110c. For this video, we used some birch wood chunks.
  • With the bacon nice and crispy, and internal temps of the bombs at approximately 160F/70C, take them off the heat and glaze.
  • Brush on your favorite sugar based sauce to ensure a beautiful caramelization. We used a classic BBQ sauce.
  • Now, finish off in the 330F/165 C heat for 10-15 minutes. You can brush again if you prefer.
