    Pig shots and ABTs will, mushrooms probably will depending on what you stuff them with. Make sure it isn't very liquid.

    Yes - those are very time consuming to make and we always make them the night before - covering  in plastic wrap and put into the fridge.

  • ABTs are a staple starter here. Favorite is stuffed with cream cheese and chorizo sausage (equal amounts).

    Chorizo in the ABTs sounds great. @Cymbaline65 do you cook it first?

    @Hoov-don't know about @Cymbaline65 and the chorizo but I always cook chorizo or any sausage before loading into ABT's.  That way when the bacon is done I know the ABT is "good to go".  FWIW-

    Nope. Mix 1/2 and 1/2 room temp cream cheese and Chorizo. Wrap with bacon (I prefer thin sliced), secure with toothpick. Sprinkle with favorite rub. I've used a variety of woods but I think Maple and Pecan are my favs for this combo. Always done all the way through. Be sure to use foil on your platesetter or a foil pan to catch any grease.

    Problem is, now that I've done them for folks I feed, I'm now asked to bring them whenever we are invited somewhere...so beware! It's a great go-to starter.

    A tip my brother taught me when filling ABT is to put your filling into a zip lock bag and cut the corner off and squeeze it out.  Lot cleaner and much much easier.

    One thing we learned, if you have a lot to do, invest in a icing or pastry gun. It will let you fill from the bottom up. You can open the tip if needed.

    Good luck on your cookout.

    I do the pig shots the day prior, works out great as they are a pain to put together when you are hurrying to get them on the egg...

    I fill my deviled eggs that way.
