First Abt's

  1. Making my first stuffed jalapeno's this weekend. I have some good ideas on how and what to stuff them with. But how do you keep them from falling over and leaking out all over the place. I was thinking of turning a pie plate upside down and punching holes in it to hold the peppers. What do you guy's think????????????????

    The one time i did them I sliced them in 1/2 length wise. Easier to clean and stuff.

    I've been kicking around the idea of firing up the welder and making a rack for them. Thinking pieces of 1/8" (maybe smaller) round stock, cut to about 2 inches long and welded into a grid with approx. 1" squares. Weld it up, have it chromed for easy cleanup, and wala... ABT rack.

    Think it'd work?

    I usually cut them in half and then bacon wrap, I haven't had any leakage yet. Maybe it depends on the type of cheese that is being used. I know that someone makes racks mainly for smokin' ABT's, try Cabela's.

    I got my pepper rack at sportsmen warehouse and love it. Might have to make one out of a pie pan great idea desertlites.
    Stuffing the jalapenos I just cut the stem end off and core them out with a potato peeler and stuff with creme cheese and shrimp or crab.

    I also like to slice mine in half lenght-wise. Use a toothpick to help hold the bacon on and to keep them from rolling around back and forth on the grill. Cook until the bacon is done and a you have a great snack.
