Yesterday was a great BBQ at my house. 

For apps I made ABTs, I did a cream cheese and mexican cheese mixture (costco shredded mexican cheese mix) in a jalapeno wrapped in bacon.  I cooked these for 30 minutes indirect at 400.  They turned out great.

For dinner I made salmon with a marinade that I used on the shrimp as well.  The marinade was cilantro, parsley, dijon mustard, red wine vinegar, honey, and some other spices.  The salmon I did direct at about 425 (temp had creeped up between ABT removal) until 125.

Then I did shrimp direct at 450 and they also turned out great.  The shrimp were both u-15 and u-8, so if you noticed it, your eyes are not playing tricks on you!

I have also attached my happy customers, probably more happy with their cookies than the food at this point, haha.

Hope everyone else had a good BBQ too!

    Everything looks great!  Do you slice your jalapenos open or cut the stem end out?

    I cut the jalapeno's in half and removed the seeds and membrane.  Then I filled with cheese and wrapped a piece of bacon around the jalapeno half.

    I do the jalapenos the same way.  They are awesome.  We always mix different spices in with the cream cheese, sometimes adding cheddar or other cheeses as well.  They always come out delicious.
