first abts

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
tryed my hand at abt's earlier this week. i took the tops off and stuffed but going to try boat style next time i think. just simple cream cheese and shredded cheese for the stuffing. they were very good for my first abt's, could have come off earlier but my ribrack turned abt rack made the bottoms cook faster.

smoking in my makeshift abt rack


those onions didn't go insde they were for a fatty that didn't get made because the pepper had a worm that destroyed the inside.

Thanks for posting - these look great
You might want to try adding some cooked chorizo next time - I made some recently that folks thought were rock star
Those look awesome

I cann't see anything wrong with thoses Abt's excepted there aren't enough Heck I eat more than that when I smoking them. I like the seafood and the little smokey ones myself. But the world is your pallet with Abt's.

Nothing wrong with simplicity pid. Try adding a few chives or green onions, a smidge of chopped cilantro, & a dash of garlic powder.

Looks great for your first ABTs.
A lot better than my first time which turned out so bad I almost gave up on them, glad I didn't though cause they are GoooOOOOOooooood...

Looks realy good! I make these every time we smoke, love the boat style. Took 2-3 times longer to eviscerate the peppers and fill them.We like the crab meat filling with cheese, have been just cutting a small slice of bacon and laying on top an opposed to wrapping around. Use about 2-1 ratio of cream cheese to sour cream.

My wife brought me some from a member of her church group's garden, really fresh! Trying this weekend!
Good luck!

Excellent try at ABT's, you did good!

Make more than you think is necessary, 'cause they disappear quickly.

Give this link a shot; some crabmeat ABT's I made just like CHAINSAW said. Very good stuff and will make you a popular guy biggrin.gif

Here's a tip: don't skimp on the crabmeat- That's the ticket.


Good luck to you and keep smoking on. You 're on your way to greatness...

thanks for all the comments everyone! i know i'll make more next time but this was just my first go and only for me until my pops showed up. next time i'll make more, how are they reheated? a crab meat version sounds really good, i'll have to try that sometime, and boat style will most likely be my next attempt as well.
man this smoking food is so addictive!!!! its about all i think of!
