Wednesday, July 12, 2006

10 large fresh jalapeno peppers
1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese, at room temperature
3/4 pound pulled pork, little smokie sausages or brisket
10 slices bacon, cut in half
Barbecue Rub to taste

          When smoking them I give the bacon a head start by frying it half way otherwise it just will not crisp up unless you smoke them forever.

              I've made them with cream cheese and with cheddar cheese. I sprinkle the rub on the cheese before I close them up. I grill over direct heat app 2 minutes, turn and grill for another 2 minutes, then finish over indirect heat, until bacon is crisp, and pepper is cooked throughout. These are always a big hit!

                  But we get to call them Atomic Buffalo Turds
                  It's like partially boning out chicken wings, leaving a ball of
                  meat attached to the humerus portion, attaching a ton of jerk seasoning and calling them ... Rat Legs
                  It's all how you want to sell it ... Golf on Monday, I bought the peppers today

                    I just do raw jalapenos, halved and cleaned. Stuff it with some finally chopped red pepper mixed with cream cheese.
                    I became hooked on theses little puppies about 10 years ago when I lived in Dorr, MI. Deli in the grocery store (Dick's Market) sold them (75 cents a half if I remember correctly).

                      I remember reading about these here, and I cant remember who it was that posted, but they said they took a bite out of one, and the sausage squirted out in his lap and his daughter just laughed and laughed.
                      I laughed myself reading that.
                      I wonder who that was..........

                                    MAde a dozen ABT's for the BBQ yesterday and they were a hit. I had to do them in the oven because it rained on my smoker outside and spoiled that method. But they were wonderful. The only bad thing was the cheese melted and alot ran out of the pockets. But it's a keeper recipe.

                                        We had too much other stuff and I wanted a good variety of items. The ABT's were gone before the other munchies though. Again, it's a keeper. I enthusiastically endorse the recipe - not too hot with the right mix of flavors and textures. I still would like to know how to keep the cheese from melting away.

                                            I've seen em done where the pepper is cored from the stem end, leaving the entire chile intact but with the seeds and stems removed. The cheese filling and meat stuffed into the open end, after wrapping the pepper with bacon the peppers are stood on end with the help of a grate the corect size, smoking the whole thing for a couple houres until done.

                                              You could try using one of these:



                                              ...and you could clean out the jalapeno with one of these:



                                              Both are available here (along with other fun toys):

                                                I slice my peppers in half, leaving 2 little "boats.. cream cheese in first, then
                                                mash pulled pork in, then wrap the whole thing with bacon. That usually prevents
                                                any cheese from running out....I start em meat side down, then flip over to the
                                                pepper side to finish, which also helps keep the cheese in.

                                                    If you are deep frying

                                                    DOUBLE BREAD your ABT's, to seal in the cheese

                                                    I make a killer ABT with devilled crab

                                                          Thanks for the tips on the cheese melting out. Anyone do them with just the cheese and no sausage?
