    I got a couple friends coming over to watch the mayweather fight tonight...so my plan was to wake up and do a pork butt. Instead the weather around the KC area is 80° and my wife had plans for me to do yard work...lol. Since i didn't have time for the butt i'll just do some snacks.
    Some ABTs stuffed with diced up chedder cheese (i think it gives better flavor than shredded), cream cheese, green onion and garlic. Also some little smokies wrapped in bacon and i'll put a glaze of melted butter and brown sugar once the get close to done :)

    The finished product....the little smokies after the butter and brown sugar taste like honey baked ham :)

    Nice! Anyone try ABT's with little smokies INSIDE them? I think that's my next smoker snack. Halve the jalapenos, spoon in a bit of cream cheese insert a lil' smoky, wrap in bacon and smoke.

    Yes! those look amazing. I think ill make some like that for Christmas. So most stuff I have made in the past that I wrapped in bacon ended up just getting soggy and greasy. Do you guys cook the bacon first at all, or does the run off in the smoker mitigate that issue?

    My bacon is basically raw when the ABTs get wrapped.  In my smoker I don't usually have an issue, but if the bacon needs a quick firm up or crisping, I drop them on the grill for a couple of minutes.
     
  10. Travisty,

    I make them like that all the time.  I change up the cheese sometimes, I even put pork rub in the

    cheese mix, but can't stand limp bacon so I fry it a little and crank the heat on my smoker up to finish them off.

    @DukeBurger, those are probably the best looking ABT's ive ever seen, do you have a recipe/ walkthrough on here? How did you wrap your bacon?
