Pork Loin &ABT (Pic Heavy)

My first Pork Loin and ABT. I had to research what an ABT was, then it sounded good for an appetizer. Pork Loin brined for 24 hours with an Alton Brown modified version. This was a bad cook, new recipes, new adjustable rig, and new program for CyberQ wifi. I had all kinds of issues, not sure if it was the rig, iPad app, or just me. In the end, it was an amazing dinner. My wife also tried two new recipes for sides, which turned out great! ABTs were made with little smokies and a few with Chorizo, both types were great. imageimageimageimageimageimageimageimage

    Great looking meal. A little tip, if I may, don't slice off the end of the jalapeno. Doing that leaves a way for the cheese to escape when it melts (depending on what kind of cheese/cheese blend you use). Keeping the end on and just removing the seedds and membranes leaves you with more of a canoe type shape that keeps the cheese in, if that makes sense.

    Thanks for the tip, makes perfect sense. I will try that next time.
