Well, I promised my buddy in South Carolina that I was going to attempt to cook ABTs this weekend. Made a couple of mistakes already: one good, one bad.
The good mistake: My wife is the cream cheese eater in the house: every morning, with a bagel. I bought some for the ABTs, and when I got home, I noticed that the color of the container was different. Turned out that I had bought "whipped"cream cheese. Man, that stuff was easy to spread! I didn't even know that it existed.
The bad mistake: I found out that you don't want to use your thumbnail to scrape the ribs and seeds out from the Jalapenos. Yowza, that burns!
On to the Q-view. Split the Jalapenos length-wise, added the cream cheese, and being from Maryland, I had to sprinkle a little Old Bay on 'em.
Then, added the weenies. These were hard to find for some reason, and the only ones I could find were all-beef.
Finally, wrapped in bacon and toothpicked.
They're sitting in the fridge for now. I'm going to smoke indirect on my Weber kettle and give the WSM a break. I'll be taking these to my neighbor's party. Thank goodness there's a pool: it's hot as heck here!
I'll post the final product later in the evening. Have a good Saturday, everyone!
