Found the ABT Forum today and I had to try my own

post #1 of 15

First off, no Qview, my camera was dead. That being said, holy crap these were good! here's what I did.

  • 8oz onion & chive cream cheese
  • 4oz sour cream
  • 1/2 cup shredded colby & cheddar cheese
  • liberal black pepper
  • pinch of kosher salt
  • garlic powder
  • jalapenos
  • bacon (I went with an apple cider uncured bacon)
I split, and de-seeded/de-veined the peppers, then piped the cream cheese mixture into the halves (BTW, use the storage bag technique... thank you Alten Brown). I had enough filling to make around two dozen ABTs, but I only bought 8 peppers so I know for next time. Next came the bacon wrap. I placed them all on a disposable tinfoil baking sheet so I didn't have to fuss with them on the racks and I didn't have to toothpick them either.

One hour at 275 with a few hunks of hickory and we were set.

The bacon was crispy but not burned and the peppers were nice and chewy. The saltiness of the cheese and the bacon hid the hit of the peppers, but they came back and slapped us in the face a couple of minutes later!PDT_Armataz_01_36.gif

These, a salad, and a couple of pieces of sausage and dinner was served.

I'm doing some more this weekend for a MotoGP BBQ... I'll get pics of those.

Sounds like your smoke was smoking. Get that camera fixed. We are addicted to the q-view.

I throw myself on the mercy of the Qview overlords biggrin.gif

I'll be sure to get some this weekend and edit this thread. Now that my camera's recharged.

However, to tide you over, here's a shot of the few that were left.

1. Bacon size noted... thanx

2. Yes... I know it's shameful, but I was experimenting and it was only my brother and I. Had I known in advance that I was going to make these I would have had some folks over for dinner. I put down quite a few, but had to eventually call the ball. It's ok though, I'll take the rest to work tomorrow to spice up lunch!
