    We’ve been doing the low carb thing, so Sunday night I wanted some grilled stuffed jalapeños. Took out a pack of cherry smoked bacon, pepper jack cheese and cream cheese. Now off to the store for some charcoal for the grill and I will be set!
    The local store had cherry charcoal so I figured that would pair well with the cherry bacon I’ve been smoking.

    Cleaned out my jalapeños and started to stuff em w cream cheese.


    Ready for the grill

    Grill was hot but I managed to cook it up pretty evenly. I really like the way the home made bacon handles on the grill.

    They turned out great! Bacon good and crispy, spicy jalapeño cooled off w the cream cheese. And the cherry smoke flavor was real nice!

    Will do these simple snacks again for sure!

    Those look amazing!!! Was looking for an appetizer to serve this weekend and this may be it (though I don't have any cherry bacon :( ).

    Thanks for sharing.

    Those look great! Way better than store bought bacon that falls apart.

    Try Boursin or Goat cheese to switch it up sometime...its killer in the jalapeno's!

    Here is another twist on stuffed peppers: cut the stem end off, remove seeds, stuff with cream cheese, wrap with bacon, stick a Little Smokey weiner in on top of the cheese.

    Like for sure! Does that cherry charcoal matter? I've tried the Mesquite and I didn't notice any difference. I'm thinking of just switching to lump entirely..

    And how long did you have them on? I've only done ABTs in my smoker :)

    Great looking ABT's (for more ideas on ABT's look them up in the forum list) yours sound great and I see some other variation already list to your thread from others.

    I think it did, I noticed a slightly more Smokey flavor.

    They were tricky to cook. My fire was really hot, so I would lid my Weber until temp hit 350, then I would pull the rack of pepper off the grill (because I could not flip them quickly enough for the coals to combust). Once I flipped them I’d put the rack back on the coals and keep It uncovered until the flames would start back up, then I would lid the grill again and repeat the process.

    About 30 mins total, and by the time I was done I was a sweaty mess, but it was worth it (not to mention scorching the bacon would have been an epic fail)

    We ate them leftover last night, cold. They were still great! When leftovers are good cold that’s usually a good indicator for me.
