    The classic is the jalapeno popper, aka, the "ABT." Search on "jalapeno popper," or "Atomic Buffalo."
  • chicken wings are a no-brainer and super easy, bacon wrapped shrimp stuffed with jalapeno and jack cheese comes to mind. There are thousands but gdenby is on the right track. That's a great place to start. also, take boneless skinlees chicken thighs and roll up whatever you like in them and grill them. I wrap them in bacon (pics below)- wrapped and stuffed with goat cheese and jalapeno. Super easy and crazy good

    We have shrimp alot, here's what we do. Marinate the 21-25 count size peeled and deveined, tails on shrimp from Costco, in 1/4 cup EVOO, along with 1 tsp. kosher salt, 1 tsp. granulated garlic, 1/2 tsp. fresh ground black pepper and 1/2 tsp. cayenne pepper. Mix this all together, cover and refrigerate for 1 hour. Skewer on pre soaked skewers and cook at 325-350 for approximately 2 minutes a side, until opaque in color. Nice little kick from the peppers.

    Any stickmeat is good if you have time to prep. Lamb lollipops, sliced smoked duck breast.

    Shrimp on a skewer wrapped in basil and bacon. There is little prep time and it only takes 6-8 minutes to grill.

    Heck, wrap bacon around anything and you'll always have a winner! Scallops, mini-steaks, human limbs...
  • And we are nothing if not classy!

    Yes.  And, ABT's are so proletarian, wouldn't you say?
