  • I do them raised indirect with a spaced drip pan.

    I do mine indirect using my foil covered PS inverted and then the ABTs resting on the grate. That way the smoke gets to them 360 degrees!

    I usually do them indirect as well.  

    I have thought about trying them in a pan because it is certainly easier.  I would think they might not turn out as crispy because the grease can't drip away.  


    Which came first the chicken or the egg?  I egged the chicken and then I ate his leg.

  • I actually low & slow mine for about 2 hrs at 250 dome on the grate w/ a drip pan. They turn out great. I would think a pan would keep the bottom of the bacon from crisping as well since theyed be sitting in their own grease.

  • I did mine indirect as well but like the photo shows I did in a pan and yes they were swiming in the bacon fat about 1/2 way thru I took off egg and drained out the bacon fat but still I think next time I will go direct on the grill with the plate setter as I did before but no tin pan

    I have gone back and forth between raised direct and indirect (not in a pan).  Lately, I am in the indirect camp, placing the ABT's right on the grate.  Takes around 50-60 mins at about 350*F on the dome for the bacon to be cooked.  YMMV-

    Use the pan but put it on the platesetter on some spacers. It'll get pretty smoky if you don't

  • Little Steven thank you I will do that like I said it was my1st go around with ABT'S I wasn't disappointed but I thought that they could come better going to try again direct on grill  with pan on plate setter

    I have done them both ways but i use a wire cooling rack so the grease drips away...
  • both ways work, give them both a shot and see what you think, they are delicious.

    I keep them whole and core them then stuff them and drape a piece of bacon over top. I use a pepper rack. Have done them raised direct at 375*, indirect at 250*, basically however I have it setup for the main course. They all turn out great, just keep them on til the bacon is crispy.
