    I cook at a lower temp, 300 for about 60-90 minutes indirect.

    I have cooked them both ways at around 350-400*F on the dome.  I prefer indirect as it cuts down on the potential for overcooking should you get sidetracked by adult supervisory beverages.  But either way yields great eats!

    I like indirect, but then the peppers are at least four inches long, full strip of bacon around the boat and 1/2 a chorizo sausage (pre cooked to at least 140º).

    I did mine indirect and they came fantastic.  I don't see any reason to try it direct.
