    Awesome. Love nachos on the egg. The egg adds that extra layer of flavor restaraunts can't touch.

    I messed up my first time by wrapping the bacon too tightly. When it crisped up it contracted and squeezed out most of the cheese.

    Looks great.
    I can never seem to get the bacon to crisp up like that and I use the regular bacon, not the thick sliced.
    What's your secret?

    Looks great. Any way to make these without cream cheese, or does it then become a vegetarian steak?

    you can par cook the bacon, or go indirect for a longer amount of time

    I've made them with peanut butter.  It's a good change up.

    I do as Stike says and go indirect for a longer time. Another tip I use is to allow the bacon to come up to temp during assembly. You can spread it out with your hand and manipulate it almost like caul fat if it is allowed to warm towards room temp. Gives you a better wrapped finish product and a thinner bacon to render down when cooking.
  • GATravellerGATraveller Posts: 5,436
    I do them indirect and raise the grate above felt level to get the bacon crisp....works like a charm.

    @JohnH12, I go indirect at 250 until the bacon looks right. Another is try not to wrap the bacon around the pepper twice, cut it if needed.

    refried beans and cheddar work also
  • Those look incredible!! I know what I'm doing with my leftover pork 
  • Nachos on the egg! I learn something new every day! I don't think I'll ever get to the bottom of my list of "to cook" on the egg.

  • Did you mix shredded cheese into your cream cheese?
  • VB_eggerVB_egger Posts: 364
    Yes, I also use some DP shaking the tree with the cheese mix.  Dizzy dust on bacon.

    Kind of odd isn't it? You would think that ABT would stand for:
    Anus. Bowels, & Testicles. 
    But strangely it does not.

    Used chorizo in mine for the first time instead of the lil' smokys I normally use. Came out amazing.
