    I decided I needed a snack while preparing dinner, so I thought why not some ABT's. I had some jalapeno's at home.

    This was my first time doing 'em boat style. Basically just filled with cream cheese and shredded cheddar with bacon lovingly laid on top like a blanket to keep 'em nice and cozy.[​IMG]

    First pic is when they were put on the drum, second is when they were done 2 hrs later.[​IMG][​IMG]

    Thanks everyone. At first I thought I might have problems because I didn't wrap the bacon, but it stuck pretty well.

    @meateater. Don't feel bad. I made myself a rack as well, but after trying these boat style, I prefer 'em this way. You get twice as many for the same amount of peppers[​IMG]

    So you'd recommend em that way?  We do them boat style but I was thinking they may be better whole... hmm, the inner-conflict!  [​IMG]

    Thanks for posting!

    I've done them both ways. After doing them boat style, I think I prefer them that way, just because you get twice as many[​IMG], and it's slightly easier to prep them.

    Neither way is wrong. I think I'd decide boat or stuffed depending on the fillings I was using, or why I was making them.

    If I had a dozen jap's on hand and I was just going to make a snack for myself, I'd probably stuff. But let's say I had some visitors, then I'd probably do boat style just so I'd have 24 snacks instead of 12.
