  1. Wait for poll please...

    I usually make mine cut in half lengthwise and with more than just cream cheese, so chose "as much as I can fit."

    P.S. You can choose more than one answer if you like but you must do it all at once before clicking the vote button, I believe.

    I use a rack and core them out then fill with cheese mixture and wrap with bacon which has been coated with coarse black pepper...
  4. How do you manage to fit them in a rack if they are wrapped in bacon? or are you just wrapping the tops & not the whole thing?

    didn't see an answer that fits mine so here it goes:

    Cored out, stuffed, wrapped entirely in bacon with a flap over the top to hold in the goodness, hanging by strings on the toothpicks off the racks, since I don't have any kind of holder yet.

    some times I slice them into canoes, and pipe in the filling, and top or wrap with a slice of bacon, or capicola, sometimes I cut the top off, pipe in the filling, and top with bacon. All depends on the filling, & any adders(shrimp, roe, crab, etc).

    I do mine cut in half with all kinds of stuff made for the filling then wrapped fully with what ever length of bacon needed to get a good wrap. Then it into the smoker for a couple of hours.

    Also do boats with little smokies, call em pigs in a canoe.
  17. Hahaha! The first thing that came to mind was a box of Christmas tree ornament hooks!
  18. Hey Beer, is that the King Kooker rack that comes with the coring tool? I just got one from Amazon but made boats instead. I had some peppers that were over 2" wide at the tops.

    chefrob, my Bully puppy looks Identical to yours, yesterday was her 1yr birthday... she loves ABTs too. This was at 3 months, her nose has filled in all black now...

    Yes it is the King Kooker rack. I bought mine from Bass Pro Shops.

    If I was going to make one I would have used Larger Holes and Spaced them Farther Apart.

    We found that with big peppers the hole is too small and to close together.
  20. Keep the votes coming!
