Ok, so the first test of the Masterbuilt is over!  Atomic Buffalo Turds (a friends recipe I modified a bit...)  They turned out great, but I'm gonna have to implement some of the suggestions on temperature and flare-up control I've learned in the forum.  This is the best place to learn about your smoker on the web!


DaveOmak asked for a Q-view, so here is the result of my first smoking effort on the new Masterbuilt.


Atomic Buffalo Turds - option 2.jpg


ABT's are stuffed, smoked Jalepenos, as follows: (I'll get this in the recipe forum in a few minutes)


Split, seed, and de-vein the peppers (10-12 large Jalepenos will use most of the filling in this recipe)


For the filling,

Mix together 1 pkg of softened cream cheese, 1/4 pound of breakfast sausage, and 1/4 pound of chorizo.  Spoon about a teaspoon of the filling into each half of the pepper.  Arrange the peppers onto a foil tray (eliminates the need to clean the melted cheese out of your smoker). Smoke at 175-225 for 30-45 minutes.  as you can see in my photo, I ran a little hot and long, but they're still fantastic.


You can adjust the heat of these little jewels by varying the depth of the vein you leave in.


Another variation is rather than halve the peppers like I did, you can split one side, clean 'em out, stuff them, then wrap them with bacon (my preferred method, but I didn't have any bacon left after breakfast, AND they tend to be a little hotter, since you can't get at the veins as well)

First off welcome to SMF there Shane. You'll really like this place for there are a bunch of really good folks here that would just love to help you with just about anything to do with smoking meat. Then if you have any questions you just post them here or yu can try in chat for a faster answer. If you are really new to all of this I would recommend that you look up and take the e-course.
