    irishrog,[p]Take a jalapeno and cut it in half or core it. Remove the veins and seeds.
    Stuff the pepper with cream cheese and maybe a piece of meat.... precooked sausage, chicken or pork works good.
    Put the two halves back together. Take a half piece of fatty American style bacon and wrap it around the pepper.
    Grill around 300, give or take, turning until the bacon is brown and crispy.
    These make a great appetizer and I don't know anyone who doesn't like them..... give them a try![p]John [p][p]

  • Rumrunner,
    Can you tell me if you use fresh jalapenos from the produce section or bottled ones? Ever try using different peppers?[p]Thanks,[p]

    The Reverand, "FRESH". Use the pepper of your choic. Let your imagination run wild..same with the fillings. Check the link for another 'variation'

  • Rumrunner,
    Thanks, I'll run out and get some fresh ones...I've seen folks suggest direct at 300 and indirect at various temps. Seems direct would crisp the bacon better...which do you suggest?[p]Thanks much

    The Reverand, 300-325° is good. Watch out for the grease flame if you go direct.

  • Rumrunner,
    Got it! Thank you for the help.
    Have a safe, fun weekend.

  • If I had taken the time to fully read your post, I would have seen that you already knew how to make them.... oh well, now you know my take on them. :~)
    Happy cookin![p]John

    I like to parboil the bacon: makes it easier to wrap around the jalapenos, and the bacon is guaranteed "done" by the time the jalapenos are.[p]We do ours direct, on a WMart grill topper.[p]Ken
