Buffalo Chicken Meatballs Recipe

Preheat your Yoder Smokers YS640 Pellet Smoker to 275ºF. Combine all ingredients, except the wing sauce in the bowl of a stand mixer. Mix on medium for about one minute, until the mixture becomes tacky and holds together. Form into about 20 (1 ounce) meatballs.

Place meatballs on top of FrogMats on the grates of the smoker and cook until the internal temperature reaches 165ºF. Begin checking the internal temperatures after 30 minutes. We recommend using an instant read thermometer like the Maverick PT-100. Transfer the meatballs to a crockpot set to warm and toss the meatballs in the Pain is Good Buffalo Blue Cheese Screamin’ Wing Sauce. Hold warm for serving.
