    As promised here is the start of a new thread on my first ABTs. Here is all the ingredients I picked up at the store earlier. I plan on cooking the meat tomorrow night and mixing with the cheeses and cooling in the fridge til Saturday at noon (please let me know if this is a bad idea!). If everything goes right this will be a very pic heavy q-view. I will update as it progresses. Thanks again!

    Freshly grated Shullsburg hot cheese. I could sit down with a cold beer and eat a whole block of this!
    First cheese mix is brat and griller patty mix with Shullsburg cheddar spread, chopped green onion, Parmesan, and fresh grated hot cheese. Mixture tastes great

    Next mixture is philly cream cheese, chopped green onion, the same meat mixture, grated hot cheese, shredded cheddar, and Parmesan. I personally think it is the best tasting of the two.

    I'm not sure yet, gonna smoke them tomorrow. They smell much less "aggressive" after the soak than they did before though! I will update ASAP tomorrow.

    I actually ran out of bacon and had 4 out of 40 that didn't get covered. My neighbor had just got done grilling burgers for his family and the charcoal was still at 240 in his grill. We took the 4 that didn't get wrapped and put them on his grill. Without the bacon they were AWESOME! I can't imagine how good they will be wrapped in bacon on the smoker for 3 hours. As far as the sprite soak goes, the peppers that sat on the grill for maybe 20-30 min had very little heat but great jalapeño flavor. I would assume after smoking they will get even more mild but I will report back tomorrow.

    Awesome, that's the way to improvise.... :biggrin: They are good without bacon but better with bacon.... but what's not better with bacon ? LOL. Sounds like the sprite experiment worked ! Be back !

    As of right now I would say it was a success but we all have a few beers in us! Lol. Plus like you said, bacon makes everything better!! The real test of how hot they were came when my buddy Chad's 5 year old girl took a bite and said they were very tasty! So either the sprite helped or that adorable little girl is more of a man than I will ever be lol! I will keep everyone posted as the smoke starts rollin tomorrow!

  18. It all looks good so far. I too want to know how the sprite works. I wonder what flavor it may add[​IMG]

    Well as I expected the beer won last night and I got a late start but they are goin now.
    The little smoker is rollin!
    Extra filling? Better do some stuffed baby bellas! First try at this. Poked holes in the bottoms to let the juices out, we will see how it plays out.

    Shrooms are done! ABTs look done after an hour and a half. Is that normal? I thought it took 3 hrs or so.
