Meat Shots




Introduction: Meat Shots

You know when something is so wrong, it’s right? Well, this is one of those!

A great Party Starter!

Step 1:

It’s all about the sausage mince and there is none better than the plain beef sausage my butcher makes, so I just gut some sausages to retrieve the sausage mince.

Step 2:

Spray the outside of the shot glasses with oil.

Wrap your shot glass carefully in the sausage meat, make sure there are no holes or they will leak.

Step 3:

Roll the “shot Glasses” in your favourite BBQ rub, then put them in the smoker on a piece of baking paper on a tray.

I push them down hard onto the tray to ensure they have a flat base so they will stand nicely at the end.

Step 4:

Half way through the smoking turn the meat shot glasses bottom side up to smoke the base.

Step 5:

Let them cool a bit and remove the shot glass.

Step 6:

Fill with something nutritious and serve.

    Oh, this I HAVE to try! I have a silicone ice shot glass mould. I think this could be employed to make meat shot holders that are really easy to remove from the mould. How about a mozzarella and tomato filling for breadless pizza shots?

    I love your idea!!!!!!!! Going to do that! I wonder if this would work in an air fryer?

    An air fryer is one of the (few) kitchen gadgets I don't have so I'm not sure if the moulds (whether glass or silicone) would survive. However UrbanGriller has definitely hit on a great idea here and I think it is up to us to honour his inventiveness by experimenting away!

    A co-worker uses silicone in his air fryer (just asked him!), so I am going to try that. IF it works, I will post a pic with the "made it!" here.

    Message former public health position, a couple comments.

    If the sausage you are using has not been precooked, you have to treat it as raw ground meat . And as such, the internal temperature has to reach a certain temperaturefor safety. US FDA has guidelines online.

    Some people add breading and eggs to to help meat ogether… As in meatloaf.

    But overall it's a cool idea. Just be safe when trying it.

    The sausage is cooked slowly (and properly) on the glasses before chilling for service. Our sausage mince is sticky asnd dense it doesn't need a binder to hold it togethert

    This is soo very wrong on many fronts, still.......I see huge potential for really bad for you food. And it's gunna be yummy all the way to the ICU after the heart transplant.

    Keep up the good work

    I love the idea, but I don't have a smoker. Any recommendations for using an oven?

    Yes, you can use an oven, just do them slowly at a low temp, around 110C (230F), otherwise they will roast and distort.

    What a great idea. I think I have to try this at some point this summer.

    Maybe fill it with a bloody mary? It is after all a shot glass and I think tomato would go great with it.

    Yes, Bloody Mary, Virgin Mary, or even a good stout all work, my favorite is a good Bloody Mary.

    How long did you keep the shots in the smoker and what kind of wood did you use?

    1 reply

    They were in the smoker at 110C (230-F) for an hour. I just use Jarrah (Hardwood), it is similar to Hickory or Mesquite.

    You just won the internet for today! THANK YOU!!! -shut up Mike! :)

    Yes, a raw Chorizo or Cevapcici sausage to make the Shots would be great!
