    Forums were down yesterday while I was putting together my first batch of ABT's. Wanted to get a little info before I started but just had to dive in. I couldn't find an easy way to core them out from the stem end so I just sliced them lenth wise and cleaned them out. For the filling I used a shrimp asiago cheese dip from Costco that is cream cheesed based and added some shredded Mozz and cheddar then topped with a strip of bacon.

    During the cooking process I had a couple slip thru because I didn't put them across the grates. Live and learn. Along with the ABT's I did a couple of slabs of BB ribs, choirzo sausage and a couple of tri tip steaks.

    Q-view is not as sharp as I'd like but I'll work on that in the future.

  2. It all looks great to me Lou,I'm sure you didn't have any complaints.[​IMG]

    Lou thanks for the q-view! If you go to your local kitchen store you can get a rack that has hole's in it for about $8-$10 that is great for smokin veggies meatloafs and things that can fit thru a grate!!!!!!!!

    I learned the hard way too!!!!!!!!!!![​IMG]

    Looks great Lou. I have also just run a skewer throught the ABT then set the whole thing in a foil pan. not quite as much smoke flavor maybe, but good just the same.

    Easier to slice them length wise anyway. As to the grate problem. I just throw down some aluminum foil, then spray with PAM. Come out great [​IMG]
