    This is a repost.
    Last week was the start of deer season here. My house is "deer camp" for me and my hunting friends...so I made up lots of finger food.

    This spicy chaurice went well with cold beer....

    I started with 5lbs of ground pork...added one medium chopped onion and 4 cloves of garlic..minced.

    Mixed the spices in with one cup of beer...

    2 TBs kosher salt
    2 tsps dry thyme
    1 tsp red pepper flakes
    1 TBs cayenne
    2 TBs dried parsley
    1 bay leaf crushed

    Mixed the spice slurry into the meat and chilled overnight..
    The recipe calls for stuffing this into casings, I rolled it into 2" balls and onto the smoker with some hickory.
    I smoked them at 225 for 2 hours.

    They were pretty tasty and went well with my japapeno pickled eggs and cold beer.

    Thank you for checking out my finger food. :)

    Those look awesome! Great photo work, too. Interesting presentation.

    Question. From the pic, the ground pork looks lean. Your guess on the fat to lean ratio? And how did you find the texture to be?

    Thanks for the recipe. Copy/Paste; Copy/Paste.

    Thank you Merv!
    The ratio was about 85/15.. it's some of my homegrown pork.
    I also like to use 80/20 to keep it moist.
    When I smoke them, I test one by breaking it open...it doesn't hurt to take them out of the smoker a bit early then cover and let them rest before eating.

    Hope you give them a try sometime. :)
