First ABT - They are AWESOME - Qview

Discussion in 'ABT's' started by downstatesmoker, Jul 14, 2008.

  1. So I had read about ABT's on this board. I figured I'd give them a try. I'm not a pepper fan in general but figured what the heck. They came out great, though I must apologize for the lame Q-View. I didn't snap the stuffing nor the finished product, and I wasn't even drinking yet [​IMG]

    I used the following:

    roughly 30 Jalepeno's halved with seeds and veins removed
    3 lbs bacon
    24 oz's cream cheese
    1 cup (precooked measure) bulk sausage
    1 1/2 cups extra sharp cheddar cheese
    1 1/2 Tbsp dry onion
    1 Tbsp garlic powder
    2 Tbsp's Buckwheat honey
    1 tsp cayenne

    I put everything except the peppers in a bowl and heated it up with 30% power in the micro to just loosen up the cream cheese a bit and mixed the stuffing. Stuffed the Jalepeno's and wrapped with bacon. Let them sit in the fridge overnight.

    Onto the gril at 250ish for about 1.5 hours till the bacon started to get a nice brown and slightly crispy. The came out great.

    Hope you enjoyed. Next time I will be more on the ball with the after shots :)

    Did the jalapenos come out crunchy or were they soft? Last time I did ABTs they came out pretty much just like eating a jalapeno wrapped in bacon...
     
  5. They were crunchy, I like them that way. It gives the jalapeno definition. If you like them soft you can always try grilling/roasting the jalapeno a bit before stuffing them.

    I always do my boats w/o toothpics too. Room temp bacon tends to stick to itself, just wrap them so you end on the top of the pepper, and you'll have no problems.

    ABT's look great.

    I am no expert by an means, but I have been doing alot of research on ABT's lately and have read that if you want softer less heat peppers cook them at higher temps. I have noticed that smoking them, while it gives them extra flavor they stay crisper and still retain alot of their heat since they are usually smoked at around 250. I do mine in the oven lately and cook them at about 325 for about 45 mins and they are mild yet very tasty JMO

    I agree. I do them on the gas grill same temp and time. Bacon gets much crispier, but he pepper is softer......no problem, I love 'em. [​IMG]
