ABT's With a New Twist (to me, anyway!)

    I am my mother's son -- I cook and create with whatever is at hand.  I decided to throw on a few ABT's while smoking a turkey to day for our church TG dinner.  (A little something to tie me over until the main event, if you know what I mean!! ;-).

    I mixed up a little filler out of some pork sausage, cream cheese, parmesean, and Italian bread crumbs.  Pretty standard -- and a bit boring.  So I poked around the fridge for inspiration when I realized that I had just drained a can of pineapple for the juice to make a marinade for some sturgeon.  I diced the pineapple and mixed it in with everything else, and then set a strip over the top.


    These puppies were fantastic!  The sweet pineapple against the jalapeno heat was too tasty!  Just add bacon next time (I got lazy after prepping the turkey) and these will be be off the hook!!!

    Now those look awesome and I have to do some Abt's for the folks up here in Staten Island for the great southern smoke out. Theses could be just what I'm looking for too. Theses folks haven't had a smoked or fried turkey either. Now I'm doing alittle of this and a little of that for this what they call a house concert. Theres about 5-6 folks singers and musicians coming to this for our listening please. Now the food is up to me. So thanks for the idea andI will use it and give you the honors also.

    I'll tell ya, I have a soft spot for any jap abt's, they are my favorite to look at and read about. 

    Pineapple is an awesome twist, I guess I am making those next weekend. Looks really great.

    What a great idea - those look amazing!   I was thinking about doing some pineapple rumaki's, but these are WAY better!!

    They look great, but I'm straining my eyes, trying to find the Bacon. 

    Then I read your last sentence!  [​IMG]

    I didn't even know I was doing it until the very last second!  LOL!  Just inspiration and a desire to squeeze the most out of my smoke.  [​IMG]

    I know, I know, Bear.  Mea Culpa (or is that "Mea Porka"?)
