Too much of a good thing???

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

I have what I think is a terrific recipe for stuffed "baked" jalapenos. I decided today to wrap them in bacon and smoke it - hence ABT.  I smoked using pecan its what I had and wow it was too smoky and the bacon overpowered everything else.

 

I smoked for 1 hour at 250 to ensure my bacon was cooked.  I'm not sure what went wrong but it was definitely a miss instead of amazing. 

 

The jalapeno recipe:

Jimmy Dean sausage

Cream Cheese

Onion powder

Garlic powder

Worcestershire sauce

Cheddar Cheese

Parmesan Cheese

 

Was it the wood/smoke? Sausage and Bacon? I'm at a loss any comments are welcome.

99% chance the smoke was billowing white smoke & too much of it.

If you got too much smoke in only one hour, it was too heavy (thick).

 

Many hours of light smoke is a good thing. TBS

Heavy smoke for even a short time can be a bad thing!!!

You didn't say what part of it you didn't like. That would help to narrow down what it is. As Bear said above my first guess would be bad smoke.

Happy smoken.

I don't know what kind of smoker you have, but if the smoke was too thick, lowering your heat isn't as important as cutting the thick smoke down to light smoke----TBS---TBS---TBS.
