I absolutely love ABTs, and who doesn't?
Most of us have tried ABTs, to any new members who haven't you really need to give them a try.

Felt like posting this while I still have the taste in my mouth and ABTs are still hot and tasty.

Picked up some japs today, 26 I think and split them boat style for some ABT goodness.
I leave the stem on and cut the peppers in half, the stem acts like a handle when eating the ABs. For removing the ribs and seeds I use a metal 1/2 teaspoon, perfect size and has firm edges and does a great job clening the peppers.

1 1/2 blocks of cream cheese, softened, garlic powder mixed in then some colby jack and mozz, added some of my chipotle rub and to half of the batch I added some chopped smoked bratwurst.

Time to get stuffing...
I use a small spoon to press the mixture into and smooth it on top of the pepper, I think it works as good if not a bit better than squeezing it from a bag.

Cut strips of bacon into 3rds and quarters and layed on the peppers instead of wrapping. Sprinkled my chipotle rub on the plain and some KC rub from Beer-B-Q on the brat ones.

Smoked at 225ish for 2 1/2 hours over cherry, snapped a picture when adding some water to the water pan, a bit blurry but I was trying to be quick, like a bunny tongue.gif

Is it wrong that looking at the pics as I post this is making the drool start to flow?
Gonna go grab a few more PDT_Armataz_01_34.gif

They were great, much better than the regular ones, the brats added a wonderful flavor, I HAVE to try them with some chorizo now.

Right now I'm home alone so it is nice, quiet and smoky, in more ways than one tongue.gif.

Going to plate some up and take over to my Sister and BIL and my Brother will end up eating several whenever he gets off work, then of course I need to make sure to save some for reheating tomorrow while it is raining out.

I have to agree! I'm not much of a jalapeno eater, but those ABTs we made the other night were great! A little more practice and a little more time in the RO and we'll have it down to an art form!
