    Atomic Buffalo Turds

    Jalapenos stuffed with cheese and meat, wrapped in bacon, seasoned and smoked.

    I likes cream cheese, pulled pork in mine...mmmmm-hhmmmmm
  • So who invented the name? There must be good story there...

    Don't feel bad. I figured out what ABTs are (through this forum) long before curiosity sent me to Google to learn the acronym's basis.

    Dont forget to take out the seeds. The more of the ribbing you leave in, the hotter they will be. I try to remove about half. I like pork in mine too, but the ones Doug123 makes with the little smokies are also very good. I am using leftover steak in mine this weekend.

    Probably the first guy who saw one fall out of an Atomic Buffalo.

    a million years wouldn't have been enough time for me to figure this out.

    I am glad you stepped in the ABT, I couldn't figure it out either. We call them Armadillo eggs.

    Come visit NOLA

    We use kielbasa, it's good too! Also, if you like them you might want to get a jalapeno roaster that will hold them vertically and leave more room on the grill for other things.

    Great question??? I could not figure that out as well and never had the nut's to ask :ermm:

    We use pickled jalapenos, dove breast and smoked Gouda.
  • StanleyStanley Posts: 623
    Pickled because they are easier or more available, or because you like the finished product better?
  • Follow the link below for a slideshow presentation on how to make them....

    In case you were wondering EVOO is extra virgin olive oil. That was the other one that i could not figure out when I was a N00b. B)

    thanks for the slideshow.

    i just ran down the street to the farmers market to by some jalepeno peppers. making these this weekend.

    I like the finished product better, it isn't as hot and you can really taste the rest of the ingredients.

    You might want to wear gloves when cutting them, some people have reactions to the heat in a fresh pepper. You don't want to spend the day with your hands in yogurt.

    Come visit NOLA and Biloxi
