I usually don’t make them whole, and never before have I smoked them. Usually use the delicate foods plate on charcoal grill and cook them quickly.

So how long should I plan on these buggars to take? I sliced my bacon thin, and stuffed w cream cheese and shredded cheddar. I’m running 250 ish. Thinking 2-2.5 hours, what say you?

Just long enough to render the bacon and no longer, I know it's a non-answer.
I like to run about 275°-300° and get that bacon cooked fast and thoroughly.
Yeah, about 2-2.5 hours.

Good deal. Yeah, my intention was to run the poppers on the top rack so they’d be 275, but I ran outta room (brisket, pork shoulder, ribs). May make some adjustments in a few. Thanks!

Yes I’d think you are in the ballpark with your 2-2.5 hours plan. It also makes a difference how you like your bacon. Looks like a beautiful day there and you are running a beautiful set up.
