There are two very delicious food holidays coming up that we wanted to share with you all because cheese and guac deserve to be celebrated! Guacamole Day is on September 16th and Cheeseburger Day is on September 18th. Happy cooking EGGheads! It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

Can you assemble ABTs the night before

    I haven't tried it, but can't see why not. As long as they are kept cold. Not sure how that would affect their smoking though.

    I'm sure 10 others here have done it. I think I may make some tomorrow myself.

    I frequently make them a day or two in advance. Just keep them refrigerated until the time to put on the egg - can even bring them to room temp before as well. OTOH were you asking about cooking them in advance? That can be done as well, and then nuke them - but after cooked and cooled they are not as good as hot and fresh!

    Sure you can. Keep them in the coldest part of the fridge and I don't cover mine with plastic wrap...you don't want any condensation to moisten the bacon. A paper towel laid on top would be okay.

  • I also have done them in advance with no issues.
    However, I froze some (uncooked)that I had left over from a big get-together. They didn't turn out as well when I cooked them up and I won't do that again, unless I learn some trick in doing so....

    Here's some:
    ***************************
    ABTs
    Kurt Oehlschlaeger
    Redwood City, CA

    Ingredients
    - 20 large Jalepenos
    - 16 oz Philly Cream Cheese
    - 1 16oz package of Hillshire Farms Little Smokies
    - 1 16 oz package of Oscar Meyer bacon (regular, not the thick stuff), 20 slices
    - Some BBQ Rub
    - Toothpicks

    Halve the peppers by slicing lengthwise (Tip to stem). Use a pairing knife or spoon to de-vein the pepper and remove the seeds. Make sure you don't cut off the cap (where the stem is). You want to create a "boat" for the cream cheese. I like to leave the faucet running while I'm working on these to help with the cleaning. Respect the peppers, it's not good when the hot pepper juice gets in your eyes.

    Pad dry the peppers. Fill each of the pepper boats with cream cheese. Put one Little smokie in the pepper boat. Sprinkle with some rub.

    For the bacon, slice each one in half. Wrap the half-length bacon around the pepper/cream cheese sausage combo, securing with a toothpick through the bacon, sausage, and pepper. Sprinkle on some more rub.

    For the cook, setup for indirect at 350 for about an hour, rotating if needed. I prefer to also use a raised grid. To make it even easier, I use a veggie tray sprayed with PAM.
    Put the ABT's on that tray, then transfer to the egg. Check after 30 minutes. Let the bacon get to your desired doneness, (everything else is pre-cooked).

    This will make 40 ABTs.

    Start off with some seasoned cream cheese

    Add it to some jalapeno boats that have the seeds and veins removed

    Using some really thin bacon, stretch it onto a cutting board or tray, then wrap the pepper. If you want, you can put some cooked barbecue meat, sausage, or even a lil' smokey on the pepper before wrapping.

    Then they go on the cooker around 300° or so, until the bacon is crispy. An indirect cook is the best, but you can cook them very raised direct.

  • Man do these things look great!! I can't wait to try some. I love that you can be creative. Too bad I'm on diet.

    I can appreciate that, and I try to practice moderation myself while watching sugars and carbs.

    Look, you don't really need the bacon, ^^ these just have seasoned cream cheese and are topped with sun dried tomatoes. I cook them with a lower pit temp since the cheese is un-protected so to speak. Toppings are endless. Slivers of garlic or even a 1/4" strip of ham or pepperoni strips are a great way to avoid the bacon. Just keep saying "the pepper is good for me", and it really is. Heheee.
