Time adjustment for jalapenos?

    I'm making smoked stuffed bacon jalapenos. I've made them before using Jeff's recipe, but they always seem too soft. I usually cook them for 2 hours instead of his recommended 3 at 225 and I pop them in the oven for 5 minutes to crisp up the bacon. Every other recipe I've seen says 30 minutes, not the 3 hours in the recipe. Anyone have a suggestion?

    I don't stick to any time, mine simply get smoked at 250°-275° until the bacon is done.
    See my Recipe Index for several variations.

    If you're looking for firmer chiles try precooking the bacon about halfway.
    Just still flexible enough to wrap.
