Those look really good...I love ABTs..and pretty much anything shoyu.  Spent 8 years in Japan and really love Shoyu soba with red pepper flakes and a little pork belly...Got a recipe for the shoyu chicken?

I can never get my smoke to show up like that.

Thanks EarthQuake!

Equal parts water, Shoyu soy sauce, and brown sugar. For this batch I used one cup of each. Then added 5 cloves garlic minced, heavy tablespoon of grated fresh ginger, heavy tablespoon of fresh ground pepper, pineapple and about a 1/4 cup of pineapple juice. You can add heat ( chipotle, paprika, etc.) but I didn't for this batch.


Smoke away!!!

Thanks guys!

Adam you'll have to come out west to the Dirtsailor school of Mini-WSM TBS!!

Since that is a stretch, here's my method. Load the basket, place your wood chunks on top of the lump, briquettes, etc...

Light with a torch like this. For lower temp smokes I do one side. Since this was chicken I lit both sides. Keep in mind you won't always see the TBS. Some of it depends on the wood. I used pecan and Cherry tonight. I've noticed that combo produces great TBS!




Smoke away!!!

Hi Dirtsailor! Perhaps catering is in your future! This most certainly looks worthy of such! Great job! Cheers! - Leah

Thanks Disco! Yes you should try them! If you don't like heat use the mini bell peppers. They work great too! Your Mini-WSM us screaming to smoke some ABT's!

Har! I like heat, it doesn't like me. However, I may ignore the warnings of She Who Must Be Obeyed, suffer the consequences and do it anyway!

You can make them as warm as you want. cull all the seeds and all the membranes out and they almost taste like green peppers almost. I leave some membrane ribs in so I know what I'm eating. As a filler try cream cheese and bleu cheese mixed awesome taste!

Those ABTs look delicious!  Haven't made them in a while but must do them again soon.

Your ABTs are some of the neatest, most well prepared ones I have ever seen.  They look like tasty little cocoons of deliciousness!  Mine look like crap.  I am not very patient.

Looks Great . I have only made ABT's one time and mine were a little greasy my bacon was done and peppers turned out good. I was wondering should I have let the bacon almost get crispy?

I always crisp the bacon. I also use the thinnest bacon I can find. Then I take the bacon and stretch it out a bit to make it even thinner. Helps get it nice and crisp.
