Introduction

I have no idea where the name for these came from and even though atomic buffalo turds (aka ABT) have an unappealing name, the taste of them is lights out delicious! ABTís have been all over BBQ circles for years and many people seem to have their own variation on these bite size treats. It is hard to describe these little delights to someone who has never had them before. Jalapeno poppers are good, but these ABTs kick basic jalapeno poppers into the ground. They are seriously that good. I have no idea where the name for these came from and even though atomic buffalo turds (aka ABT) have an unappealing name, the taste of them is lights out delicious!

Number of Servings: 10

Ingredients

    * 10 jalapeno peppers
    * 10 bacon slices, cut in half
    * 10 mini sausages or smokies (or 20 if they are very small)
    * 1 cup cream cheese
    * 1 cup grated monterey jack
    * 1 tsp chipotle or chili powder
    * 2 shallots, minced

Tips

To cook on the grill: Cook on a medium heat grill until the jalapeno is tender and the bacon is browned. Keep the lid covered while cooking. To cook in the oven: Bake the ABT's in the oven, set at 425F, for 20-30 minutes or until the bacon is browned.


Directions

1. Slice the jalapenos lengthwise. Using a spoon, remove the seeds and membrane. If using bell peppers, quarter them after they are seeded.

2. Mix the cream cheese, monterey jack, chipotle powder and minced shallots.

3. Fill the hollowed out portion of the peppers with the cheese mixture.

4. Place the smokie on top of the cream cheese. Wrap the half slice of bacon around the jalapeno. If the bacon is not staying tightly wrapped, it may be necessary to use a toothpick to hold it in place.

5. Smoke the ABTs in the smoker, set at 225F, for 2-3 hours, or until the bacon is browned.


Serving Size: Makes 20 ABTs, 2 per serving.

Number of Servings: 10
