    At Pineywood's house this weekend, Seboke gave both of us a hands-on tutorial on making abts. After seeing how easy it was to make the filler I realized it was time to quit dragging my feet on making these tasty treats!

    If anything I learned from the prep at Jerry's house, it was to wear gloves when handling the japs [​IMG] .

    My first batch of abt's were filled with the following:

    1 - 8oz. pkg of cream cheese
    1/4 cup of sour cream
    1/2 green pepper - diced
    3 cloves of garlic - diced
    6 strips of cooked bacon - crumbled

    These babies were topped with a slice of thick sliced bacon and off to the smoker for an oak-smoked infusion of flavor. Left them on there until the bacon was crisp and pulled them off. Not only did these suckers smell good, they tasted really good!! I've got to run out and get more japs as I've got plenty of filler left. I think the co-workers will like these ... [​IMG].

    Here's the qvue:

    Filler ingredients (minus the green pepper)


    Mixed up filler


    Stuffed and on the smoker


    Tasty finished results

    Thanks Bob [​IMG] The peaches were not included in the filler. Just had those sitting in the background.

    Looks fantastic, Laurel!! One other thing you can do, per Walking Dude's instructions, is to partially cook your bacon....maybe a minute per side.....you'll get crispier bacon without withering away the japs.

    NICE JOB!!! [​IMG]

    The two big ones wrapped in the green pepper ... they could dunk some chips in the filler and eat the pepper later one. All of them look great, Jerry! [​IMG]

    Figured the "I won't try it it'll be spicy" wife and daughter could do the bell peppers.

    Glad to have been a little inspiration on you both! Sad to say that I made my own batch Monday, but I did not take any pics [​IMG].
