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
PREPARATION: Cut off stems of the peppers and then slice in half lengthwise. Remove the seeds and veins (if you like more heat, leave the veins). Fill each half pepper with cream cheese. Heap with smidgen of pulled pork, wrap the entire pepper with half strip of bacon and secure with a toothpick. Liberally sprinkle with Barbecue Rub.
These can be cooked a number of ways. For a conventional oven, cook at 200 degrees (or 225 degrees maximum) for 1 1/2 to 2 hours or until the bacon is crisp and jalapeno pepper soft. Or, smoke at 200 to 225 degrees for 1 1/2 to 2 hours. Or, grill at lowest indirect temperature possible for 1 to 1 1/2 hours.
Makes 20 ABTs.
