Would I be able to use the general filling (cream cheese, ched cheese, etc) with sweet peppers?

What's the rough estimate these guys stay in the smoker? What temp should I be going for?

oh and i'll wrap it in bacon!!!

if anyone is not sure of what peppers i'll be using, it's here:

Go for it!

I use bell peppers cut into 1/4's for my family that can't handle heat and they love 'em.

You can use anything...I use cubanelles all the time, and poblanos as well. Stuff with cheese, and/or sausage, wrap in bacon, about 2 hours, ooo-la-la.

Yep the options are limitless, about 2-2 1/2 hours, and always wrap in thin bacon, it will get crispy.

I have used lots of different kinds of peppers and they all seem to work well. As Al said they take a couple hours depending on smoker temps basically when the bacon is done to your tastes its ready

If you can find them near you, try the sweet mini bell peppers.  They work great for ABT's!

I buy them at the grocery store in a 2# bag.  Costco sells them in a 1.5# plastic tray

It's a mix of red, yellow, and orange peppers that are about the size of a jalapeno, only they are sweet like bell peppers.

That is what i picked up, different package, but same produce.

Do i get the smoker up to normal temp ? or lower?  Is there a way I can tell it's done?

Yeah I use the mini bells for my wife too. Usually a cream cheese & monterey + rub mixture & wrap in bacon. Like Al & Jerry said when the bacons done they're done. Let us know what you did & don't forget the qview!!

I like to use these peppers too when I can find them.  I use cream cheese and a white cheddar in mine.

I see no reason you couldn't use any pepper you can eat.  I don't think those sweet bells would be Atomic, though.  I think you would just have BT's.
