The Talladega Big One
Made famous at Talladega Super Speedway-where everything is bigger! This softball-size meatball, made to resemble an Italian meatball impaled with a forkful of pasta, holds a secret filling. The Big One is actually a deep-fried meatball filled with a molten center of smoky pulled pork, two cheeses and BBQ sauce. So ridiculously over-the-top fun – we just had to get in the kitchen and try this out for ourselves.
