My first crack at ABTs - Page 2

post #21 of 30
I have used the little peppers that you buy in a bag.. they are all different colors.. not sure what kind they are.. thinking there was "sweet" in the name.... but they are small and little harder to work with...no heat...

Whipped cream cheese huh? Must look for that. Di the whipped hold up in the smoker or did you loose some due to melting? They look great and.. they are always a hit at party's ;)

Finally got around to making some ABTs.
Filling is cream cheese, cherry smoked habanero white cheddar, and spring onions.
Wrapped in bacon and dusted with Jeff's rub.
2 hours in the smoke at ~220 deg F using AMNTS and Hickory pellets.

Stuffed and wrapped with bacon;



Dusted with Jeff's rub;



Onto the Weber Genesis;



About an hour into the smoke I put on a spud, onion, and tomato;



First victim;



Finished product;



Here's a nice closeup;



Now I know why forum members rave about these things!
What awesome flavor. MMMMMMM

I have made them and chopped pepperoni and added it to the cream cheese....and put some shredded smoked cheddar in that too...then wrapped with bacon.  Also made what a friend called "Kat Turds".....Keith may differ with the name....biggrin.gif.  I made some using the sweet snack peppers and did them the same way as the abts.  I actually enjoyed them....I don't care for hot and spicy things.

JckD: I know what you're referring to...I've seen those bags of small mixed peppers. If my friend wants the sweeter ones, he and his wife can worry about cleaning them. I'll help with the cooking if they want. I could even taste-test one or two at no charge! biggrin.gif

 

Webowabo: I didn't lose much of the whipped cream cheese at all. My pit was a bit hot, and the cream cheese formed a crust fairly quickly. That crust held it together pretty well. I did think about this ahead of time, and made sure that I didn't have a lot of cream cheese near a low spot (for mine, the low spot would be where the stem was removed).

 

JayBone: They look great! Fantastic job! Did you use whole pieces of bacon?

 

Kat: I will definitely have to try some different variations..especially at the next party. That could be fun: have a "build your own ABT" kind of thing!

Each bacon slice was between 1/2 & 3/4 of a full length piece.
Next time I'll use 3/4 length bacon slices.

Kat, Yours sound good.
That's probably the only way I'll ever be able to get my wife and daughter to try em.
They turn their noses up at anything remotely spicy.

Well....I am "one of those too"!  I cut the pound of bacon in half...so there are more pieces of bacon to wrap with.  With the snacking peppers...the ones I bought were really long.  Try and pick a package that have the smaller ones about the size of the jalaps.  Works better.

 

AND....they are really good.  I will always add those into the mix now.
