    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 [​IMG]

    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 [​IMG]

    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 [​IMG].

    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!
