    Would I be able to use the general filling (cream cheese, ched cheese, etc) with sweet peppers?

    What's the rough estimate these guys stay in the smoker? What temp should I be going for?

    oh and i'll wrap it in bacon!!!

    if anyone is not sure of what peppers i'll be using, it's here:

    Go for it!

    I use bell peppers cut into 1/4's for my family that can't handle heat and they love 'em.

    You can use anything...I use cubanelles all the time, and poblanos as well. Stuff with cheese, and/or sausage, wrap in bacon, about 2 hours, ooo-la-la.

    Yep the options are limitless, about 2-2 1/2 hours, and always wrap in thin bacon, it will get crispy.

    I have used lots of different kinds of peppers and they all seem to work well. As Al said they take a couple hours depending on smoker temps basically when the bacon is done to your tastes its ready

    Those are exactly what I use and they work great.
  9. If you can find them near you, try the sweet mini bell peppers.  They work great for ABT's!

    I buy them at the grocery store in a 2# bag.  Costco sells them in a 1.5# plastic tray

    It's a mix of red, yellow, and orange peppers that are about the size of a jalapeno, only they are sweet like bell peppers.

    Yeah I use the mini bells for my wife too. Usually a cream cheese & monterey + rub mixture & wrap in bacon. Like Al & Jerry said when the bacons done they're done. Let us know what you did & don't forget the qview!!

    I like to use these peppers too when I can find them.  I use cream cheese and a white cheddar in mine.

    I see no reason you couldn't use any pepper you can eat.  I don't think those sweet bells would be Atomic, though.  I think you would just have BT's.
