    First try with ABTs. I'm keeping it simple.
    Straight forward with 1/2 cream cheese. And 1/2 shredded sharp cheddar with some pepper for the filling.

    Jalapenos cut in half with seeds removed.

    Added filling.

    Wrapped with bacon. And some rub added.

    Tonight I'll be doing these on the grill. Just not in the mood to get the smoker set up today. Also have a few thick cut Delmonico's for the grill.

    Delmonico, that's Yankee speak for Thick-cut Ribeye. :emoji_stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

    Named after the renowned New York City 'Delmonico's' restaurant that had a popular steak and potato dish.

    G'gosh Steve, those steaks look fantastic. :emoji_heart_eyes:

    Thanks. It does drive me crazy when I see meat that is labeled as a Delmonico. And it is like a 1/4" thick.

    Oh hell yeah!
    That plate is fit for royalty.

    Drives me crazy to see any steak cut less than 1".

    Excellent meal Steve, you did that steak proud. Sometime you should try making the ABTs by removing the top and filling it top to bottom instead of splitting them in-halve. When you take that last bite you'll get a shot of liquid fire juice.

    Point for sure

    Thanks! I wanted to do it that way. But I couldn't find any Jalapenos large enough to do this. That will be my next venture.

    I'll bet this will work great with banana peppers. I love pickled banana peppers. But I have yet to find some for sale around here.
