    The possibilities are endless.Anything you can think up will be awesome.Sometimes I even make mild banana pepper ABT's for the ones that can't stand hot.And sometimes I'll make haberno ones for the smart-aleks that act like the jalepeno ones are not hot enough for them! :evil:

    I've done these at numerous fests and always get rave reviews :

    Atomic Buffalo Turds
    by John Hall (egret)

    Ingredients :

    12 Jalapenos - fresh (3-3.5 inches each)
    (1) 8 ounce package of Cream Cheese
    12 oz. Bacon (regular sliced-NOT thick sliced)
    1 pack Smoked Cocktail Wieners (Lil' Smokeys)
    Dizzy Pig Red Eye Express rub
    Wood Chunks (Apple, Hickory, or Guava Wood work well)

    Preparation :

    Wash, remove stems and halve jalapenos lengthwise. Only cut the stem off, don't cut the end of jalapeno off to remove the stem. If the jalapenos are pretty fresh. you can pull the stems off fairly easy. Remove seeds and veins (leave veins in if you would like a hotter ABT).

    Fill jalapeno halves with cream cheese, then top with a cocktail wiener. Put the two halves together and wrap the whole thing with a piece of bacon. Secure each end of the bacon with a toothpick.
    Sprinkle a liberal amount of DP Red Eye Express rub all over the surface of the bacon.

    Stabilize egg at 350° F. with a raised grid.
    Place a drip pan on regular grid to catch the drippings.
    Put 2-3 chunks of wood on the coals and place ABT’s on the raised grid.
    Cook about 45 minutes, then turn them over to crisp up bottom side of bacon, and cook for an additional 15 minutes.

    Allow to cool several minutes before serving.

    IMHO get the seeds out but leave the membrane in. I mix shredded cheese with the cream cheese and put some pulled pork or rare steak in the middle.

    Morning Bob:

    Follow the link
    ABT Method for the way I do them. Like everyone else said, use whatever meat you want and your imagination is the only limit. We have done them with pulled pork, shrimp, sausages, steak, chicken, etc.

    Have a GREAT day!

    I like mixing the cream cheese with leftover brisket, they get a real smokey flavor!
