ATB's in the off season!

After brushing a few inches of snow of old faithful I threw on some ATB's. I don't have a pepper rack so I got a little creative. I used the rack from my roaster pan. I strung the peppers together with skewers and set them in the roaster rack. It worked great and I figure I could fit around 40. The peppers were delicious but a few of them really had some bite to them!

  • Those look great, congrats. Very creative with the rack/skewers. Did you have any trouble with the peppers splitting when you skewered them? Also, I've been wrapping my ABTs the other way (stem to point to stem) and once strip seems about right. Do you have any trouble getting the bacon to crisp up when wrapped this way?

    Thanks for the great pics.

    Cheers -

  • Most of them crisped up well. I cooked them about 300 for 1 1/4 hour. No problems with splitting on the skewers either. It made it real convienant to remove and put on display. I do wish I cooked them a bit more. Maybe 20 minutes longer
  • ATBs, good anytime. Very creative use of the rack, must try this foe mozza stuffed peppers. 

    For ATBs, I split my peppers lengthwise, cream cheese, chorizo sausage and strip of bacon. I don't use tooth picks, the bacon will stick to itself and "cooks" into place. Using peppers that are straight and between 3" and 4" long makes it easy to wrap. Dust with rub if you like. 
    Indirect 325 for an hour is about right.
