    Just out of curiousity, I added it up last night.....came up to about 112 per pepper! That's stuffed with cream cheese, fatty, and wrapped in bacon. That means on a 2000 calorie diet I can about 18 per day!!?? :)

    Got 36 in the smoker right now, that should cover me for 2 days! (Gosh, I love these things!)

    Would this be a healthy menu for today:

    1 Banana
    17 ABT's
    8 Glasses of Water

    Any MD'S in the house to tell me if that's a balanced healthy diet for the day?

    i think the more fat in them, the easier it is for your blood to move, right? i mean, grease makes things slicker, so yeah, makes since to me

    Flash is right you can reduce the calories, if you want to.

    You can use low fat cheddar, turkey sausage, etc.

    The full fat version though is so good though that it's hard to tamper with perfection.

    We basically do use the 50/50 low fat cheeses, but I sure wish I could find some low fat Lil Smokies.

    Fat is where it's at!

    Oh yeah...

    No lo-fat, dietetic, tofu-tized kinda stuff for me! No suh! Full Fat, Whole Cream, Real Meat, Pure Sugah, an' the rest o' the things that were intended for mankind to eat with abandon and and big smiles!

    I prolly gained 3 pounds from just licking the bowl, spoon and fingers from stuffing my ABT's for tommorrow. But I don't care. I eat this food so rarely that when I do....I DO!

    I always use the 1/3 less fat cream cheese. By the time I add some of my rub, some fresh garlic, a 1/2 cup of cheddar cheese, a little honey, you can't tell. Plus the bacon. These things are the best.
  12. I thought that the smoking process essentially nullified calories, cholesterol, and saturated fats...

    at least, that's what I keep telling myself [​IMG]

    I did some a while ago, Ron..used bacon, but the sausage I added <ground with Hi-Temp cheddar> was straight venison... basically NO fat there.
  14. I just ate 448 calories worth, along with 3 slices of bacon cheeseburger fattie (another 500 calories?).

    Looks like I need to go for a walk!
