    I am going to to probably do some ABT's this weekend but there will be some folks and kids that won't do the jalapeno's.  Has anyone  quartered up other types of peppers such as bells?

    what about those little ones...about the size of Jalaps....that come in a package...they are yellow and orange.  don't know the name of them...but they are milder.  I like them....don't care for the heat from jalaps.

    Oh, banana peppers?   That might just work

    Banana peppers would be good...Mrs. Red also likes small bell peppers for ABTs.

  6. Yeah, what Kat said.
    Around here they're red, yellow and orange.

     FWIsmoker  [​IMG]   it is against the law to make ABTs with anything other than a jalapeño. If you use anything else it’s a Shirley Temple [​IMG]

    OK, ok! So I made that up       [​IMG]

    I used to make ABTs by cutting the tops off and scooping out the innards with a baby spoon, but I would have too many “surprises” in a batch

    I started splitting them lengthwise and cleaning them out with a teaspoon and have yet to have any “surprises” in a batch

    Even people who do not like hot stuff seem to like my ABTs this way

    Cleaning them out this way allows the flavor of the jalapeño to come out without the heat

    Try it. You'll like it!
  10. I've done the mini bells and Poblanos, Anaheims, Pasillas and even Pepperoncinis. The Poblanos, Anaheims and Pasillas do have some heat but not as much as Jalapenos. Pepperoncinis are similar to bell peppers. I also make stuffed mushrooms, with the same filling in the peppers, if I have any on hand; add a piece of bacon to the top.

    Arnie, lol i feel ya!    I'll be doing the jalapeno myself but some people you can tell them until you're blue in the face that theirs won't be hot their brains will still say it's hot!

    I've only made them with Jalapenos but I have seen where others have used Serranos, Hungarian Wax, Poblanos and Cubanelles. Next time I make them I'm going to try some with the Poblanos.

    Poblanos and Cubanelles are a good call.

    One of my kids doesn't like a lot of heat.  In the past, I've cored a jalapeno, and really worked at chiseling out the membrane where the seeds attach.  Seemed to take a lot of the heat out.

    You may also want to consider coring them, and letting them pickle in a vinegar brine overnight.  That should take some heat out of it.

    Let us know how it turns out!

     I used these snacking peppers and they were phenomenal.  Onion and chive cream cheese, KC rub, lil smokies, Mexican cheese and the bacon.    They were a huge hit, Thanks!

    No it was a crazy day... i had to do those, smoke a bunch of bbq chicken and 3 racks of ribs so everyone else could enjoy the party.    They are so good that they deserve their own name....I'll name them "sweet buffalo turds" SBT's because they are sweet.. Awesome is all i can say.
