    Well we finally got enough jalapenos from the garden to make some ABTs from them. Everything seems to be so slow this year in ripening for some reason...

    Up until now all we have been getting has been cherry tomatoes and yesterday we had about 2 dozen jalapenos and about a dozen tomatoes ripe enough to pick.

    So yesterday we decided to do some ABTs for me and here are the before and after pics, (wife did them and didn't take any cooking).

    Before Smoking...

    After Smoking...

    For the filling we used Cream Cheese, Sausage, Cheyenne Pepper, Black Pepper, and some chili powder...

    Wrapped with bacon and coated with coarse black pepper...

    They were a delicious midnight snack... The wife doesn't even like black pepper so I had them all to myself. Ate them while watching the old Elvis movies until 4:00am...[​IMG]

    I did discover that the 36 hole ABT rack is not designed for large Jalapenos... Had to place one every other hole...

    Very nice.Nothing like your own produce IMHO.I grow mainly very large japs for chipotles , but desertlites yesterday mentioned pie pans upside down with holes cut to fit japs...

    Thanks for pics....

    ABTs look great, especially knowing they came from your own garden.
    I can almost taste them.

    Congrats Paul, you smoked a tasty treat and you were lucky enough to enjoy them all. Some guys have all the luck... some of us are luck to get only a few before they're all gone.
