My first ABTs

Re-posted from my website:

You may or may not have read about <a href="">Voyage #2</a> last weekend - pulled pork and it turned out great! That makes beef ribs, pastrami and pulled pork so far, and so far - everything has been a hit! So since my pork was taking up one rack in the proQ, and I have two - I decided to try ABTs as well.

WOW! These turned out great! So, for the uninformed, "ABT" stands for "Atomic Buffalo Turd". They are a high-end, customized jalapeno popper. There are a ton of variations, but the standard is this: A jalapeno split in half. Put a "little smokie in the middle, buried in cream cheese. Put the halves back together, wrap in bacon and throw on the smoker. For my first time, I didn't stray too far from the base recipe.

Little Smokies were about 4 bucks for a package, so I found some smoked sausage on sale for 99 cents instead. I cut it up to "Lil Smokie-sized" pieces. The cream cheese seemed kind of blah, so I threw a couple of spoonfuls of salsa inside and stirred until smooth. I wore gloves while splitting the jalapenos and scraping out the seeds. I then filled with cream cheese and a piece of sausage, and put the two halves back together. I wrapped with a piece of bacon and stuck in a couple of toothpicks to hold it all together. Oh - they were dusted inside and out with some BBQ Bomber rub, from Obie-Cue

No worries about the cheese squeezing out the end; it forms a "skin" and seems to seal it just fine.

I think these were on the smoker about 3 hours at 230 or so.
The finished product. Even my wife liked them!

First, you eat with your eyes. Not only do they look great, I'm certain they were delicious as they look perfectly cooked.

Great first go with the ABT.
