Ingredients
  

  • 1 lb bulk pork sausage
  • 1 lb ground pork
  • 1/2 cup finely diced jalapeno peppers
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 2 tsp Grilling Rub for Pork
  • 1/4 cup plain breadcrumbs
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1 8 oz pkg jalapeno pepperjack cheese or Monterey Jack cheese with jalapenos, cut into 18 cubes

Instructions
 

  • Prepare the smoker according to manufacturer's instructions. Heat to ~235F. I used mesquite chips when I made this.
  • In a bowl, combine all the ingredients except the cheese. Shape into 18 balls. Press a cube of cheese into each, forming the meat around the cheese completely and sealing well. Dust with more pork rub.
  • Cook balls in the smoker for ~1 hr. Check that the internal temperature reaches 160F. Remove from the smoker and serve.
