ABT - best recipe in the world QViewI now do not bisect them, I do the ziploc-pastry bag trick.
My wife bought me a Chile Grill (because she loves me!) and it came with one of those little $3 knife things - dang, that's the best thing in the universe for coring. Gotta have one of those. now we don't ooze - but I'll tell you, I've smoked them and baked them in the oven - either way is honorable. So next time when you don't want to fire up the big smoker (Like that would ever happen), stick em in the oven for 45-1hr. Yummy.
I think the rub in the cheese and on the outside is key. When that turbinado sugar hits bacon, magic happens.
