ABT's post brisket

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Ran out of time on Saturday with the brisket! Today is a perfect day for me to try out ABT's!!

MIX: Cream Cheese, cheddar, feta, tail onion, crushed garlic, paprika, mustard, seasoning salt, and a splash of warchestershire.

Off into the smoker at 230F about 5 minutes ago.

Pulled the ABT's at 2 1/2 hours and I think I should have kept them in the smoker for another 30 minutes. Still taste great and I put half of them in the oven to see what the extra time would do. I think the bacon needs to be crispy.

This is all im smoking for today. I wanted to do these on Saturday with my brisket but I just concentrated on finishing the brisket instead. Needed to try these for my Birthday!!!

PS Wife said next time just do them on the rack with no tinfoil. She thinks she tastes the tinfoil.

I always do mine in an aluminum pan with no problem. of course I make 4 dozen in a batch and I'm too lazy to pick them off one at a time. would probably fall between bare grates.

I was gonna ask about the foil and why but now I see you won't do that again. I just make them on the grates and when they are cut boat style like I do to they sit right in the grates and don't move any. But yours look good maybe alittle more time in the heat but good. Oh Happy Birthday soon I'm guessing.

Ya..the birthday is today. 36!!

Things I learned from todays ABT's:

- eliminate the salt in the cheese mix. No feta and no seasoning salt.
- cook at least another 30 minutes. Finished mine another 30 minutes in the oven and they were significantly better.

Next batch I will try to add crab meat to the cheese mix.

U might also try the really thin bacon..( u may have)..It tends to crisp alot faster...Great looking abts by the way !!PDT_Armataz_01_37.gif

Happy Birthday! Abts are the way to celebrate! I have found that if you microwave the bacon for a min + the bacon crisps up a lot easier. I personally like mine hot so I dont keep them on the smoker long. Nice work though!
