We went non traditional for Canadian Thanksgiving again. No turkey. Also, a friend had given me a bag of jalapenos. I decided to do ABT's for appetizers. I use Jeff's book, The Essential Guide to Real Barbecue, Smoking Meat. If you don't have it get it. It is a good quick reference.
I started by making the cheese mixture
I filled the jalapenos.
In his book, Jeff wrapped the bacon lengthwise and used toothpicks. I just wrapped 1/2 slice of bacon around each and did not use toothpicks.
I heated the mini up to 240 F with some bourbon barrel oak chunks and put them on.
Here, I'm afraid, Jeff let me down. His book said they would take approximately 3 hours. I put them on 2 1/4 hours before my guest was to arrive. They were ready in 2 hours. I cranked the vents shut and tried to keep them warm but the bacon over crisped a bit.
That said, they were delicious and were gone almost instantly.
I will have a better idea of cooking times the next time and there will definitely be a next time.
