For superbowl sunday I tried the cheesy stuffed meatballs from Jeff's newsletter. Followed the directions in the recipe and they came out great!
Also tried my hand at a batch of ABTs. Mixed cream cheese, chopped crab, bread crumbs and grated cheddar/colby cheese. Chopped everything up, mixed it up and loaded it into my wife's papmered chef cookie gun.
Split the peppers halfway through the crown and then lengthwise. Scraped and rinsed the insides (a little too much scraping. there was no heat at all left when they were done)
Used the cookie gun to fill the peppers. it was like laying a bead of caulk!
Wrapped them in bacon and gave them 2 hours at 250.
I used the leftover mix to fill some portabellas. they also got about 2 hours at 250 and came out perfect. The crab was a nice touch for both the ABTs and the shrooms.
So everybody pigged out on the apps before the game. Filled up on those so there was a lot of leftover pulled pork for me the next day!
It was a smokin good day!
