    ABT's are fairly foolproof with any idea you have for a flavor profile. One I make often consists of cooking up some chorizo in a pan and mixing it into creamcheese, maybe add some garlic or chili powder if I want. Filling the peppers and dropping in a chicken sausase wrapping with maple thick cut bacon, and smoking in hickory. They are always a hit.

    I just take off when the bacon is crispy.  They are your own personal timer!!!!

    I like to cook mine slower to ensure lots of smoke flavor and  I like pecan best.

    wear latex gloves and goggles. DO NOT RUB YOUR EYES OR SCRATCH YOUR NOSE ONCE YOU START FIXING THE ABT'S.  Buy extra Tums and toiletpaper.

    What are ABTs?
    Atomic Buffalo Turds. Made with jalapeños, cream cheese, some form of meat (chorizo, pulled pork, pepperoni, lil smokies....) your favorite rub or rubs and wrapped in bacon.

    Comeon... Jalepeno's are not that bad...if I was working with Habenero's or maybe even some strong Serrano's...maybe I'd wash my hands extra good.

    Here were our ABT's that were wrapped in extra thick Maple Bacon and smoked in Hickory - they are always a hit.

    I just put together 48 ABTs for a BGE demo tomorrow. I chopped up my smokies and mixed with my cream cheese to make a nice pink paste. Filled the peppers, wrapped in bacon and season half with BB Butt Rub and the other with Blues Hog. I am guessing 30-45 minutes at 350ish.

    god they take forever. My lady and I usually assembly line them. Easiest to clean the jap's with a melon baller or teaspoon. I like to mix up whatever smoked meat i have, chicken, chopped brisket, pulled pork....or just sauté up some chop meat with garlic and onions.  after that, mix up softened cream cheese, run the pack under hot water for a couple minutes, shredded cheddar, your favorite rub and the meat. Put it in a ziploc freezer bag and clip off a corner to make a make shift piping bag. Fill up the jap's so they're mounded over, than wrap with THICK bacon, the thin stuff never covers right. 

    Proportion wise, i usually do 2 packs of cream cheese to almost a bag of shredded cheddar. Usually about 2 dozen whole jalepenos, split = 48. Base the amount of bacon on that #. Extra bacon never goes to waste.

    OOPS....I dust the outside with some rub...I cook them 350 ELEVATED direct till the bacon's crispy, than the last 5 minutes i put some diluted with vinegar bbq sauce on them. They DISAPEAR every time.

    I have allergies and rubbed my eyes after working with ABTs. That was a mistake I will NEVER make again. I had to fill a sink up with water and dunk my face to flesh my eyes. Hurt like a son of a....

    How do you get the ABT's some kick. I made mine in jalepenos and put in the mix, wrapped in bacon. Delicious flavor..but missing the kick. Suggestions?
    Did you clean out the seeds?
  • Most of the heat of jalapenos resides in the seeds and white ribs on the
    inside of the pepper.  If you want flavor but not too much heat, remove
    them by halving or quartering the pepper and cutting them out with a
    paring knife.  I like to leave about half of the ribs for a little kick.

    Sirracha makes everything better.  Smooth educated heat that is not too scalding.
