Jalapeno "Coring Tool"

I saw this thing on the Bass Pro site and wondered if anyone had used this thing before and how it worked. Normally I cut the peppers in half when making ABTs but new toys are always fun...

Bass Pro Jalapeno Rack


  • I recently bought a 12-hole one "Chili Grill" brand rack. I really works great !
    I use a melon ball tool to core with.
  • That looks like a good Price

    I bought a jalepeno coring tool and a jalepeno rack similar to Misippi Egger's. I had a few people tell me how great this corer was but to be honest, i liked using my 99c vegtable peeler for cleaning out the insides. The corer would sometimes rip the peppers open and not get all the insides out. I still have the rack and corer, but for me i think it's easier just to do them "canoe" style. Cut in half, scoop out the insides with a spoon and be done with it. I haven't used my corer or jalepeno stand since i started doing them canoe style. Plus it's easier to get the cream cheese filling in there. just my .02
  • I agree with high press. The rack looks great, but it was definitely harder to stuff than 'canoe style'. It does allow for a "fancy" presentation, so I will likely use it occasionally when I want to impress. :woohoo:


    Also, you really need to stick a toothpick through the lower part of the peppers to keep them from slipping though the holes since they shrink a little as they cook.
  • I have been using a coring tool from Chile grill that was $9.oo. I also use a cookie press for adding cream cheese and they work great together. :)

    These guys were at the Oklahoma State Fair last month. All the stainless goods are heavy duty and well finished. They had never heard of BGE but could rattle off every maker of horizontal off-set smokers within a six state radius. They said they would consider producing a round version of the pepper holders suited to the exact diameters of the various Eggs. They seemed a bit enthused.
  • Clark:

    I've seen how BIG the holes in those pepper holders are, from the ones sold at Williams-Sonoma to the ones in any grill equipment department. The grocery stores here don't sell humungous jalapeno peppers, and even before cooking they'd slide right out of the holes.

  • You're right, Judy. I think I read about using toothpicks in something put out by the company that makes the racks.
  • We are on the other end of the spectrum here with huge peppers. I may have to get the magnum Chile Grill which has bigger holes. I have had to use the tooth picks for some of the skinny ones which worked fine.
