Well I am a long time lurker who has been smoking meat for three years thanks to all the great ideas, instructions and insights from you all!
I'm entered in my first rib cook-off in a few weeks and couldn't be more excited. I'm feeling good about my ribs and yard birds but there is a category for vegetarian that I'm less sure about.
I'm thinking of doing vegetarian ABT's, skipping the bacon (blasphemy, I know!!). I'd love to hear your thoughts on if this would work. Obviously they won't be genuine ABT's and won't be as delicious, but do you think they'd still be ok?
Has anybody done ABT's w/o bacon and made a more substantial filling? I'm thinking maybe grilled veggies mixed into the filling.
Please let me know what you think - I wouldn't even be entered in this competition if it wasn't for all the great wisdom I've picked up from you all here!
