    For superbowl sunday I tried the cheesy stuffed meatballs from Jeff's newsletter. Followed the directions in the recipe and they came out great! 

    Also tried my hand at a batch of ABTs. Mixed cream cheese, chopped crab, bread crumbs and grated cheddar/colby cheese. Chopped everything up, mixed it up and loaded it into my wife's papmered chef cookie gun.

    Split the peppers halfway through the crown and then lengthwise. Scraped and rinsed the insides (a little too much scraping. there was no heat at all left when they were done)

    Used the cookie gun to fill the peppers. it was like laying a bead of caulk!

    Wrapped them in bacon and gave them 2 hours at 250.

    I used the leftover mix to fill some portabellas. they also got about 2 hours at 250 and came out perfect. The crab was a nice touch for both the ABTs and the shrooms.

    So everybody pigged out on the apps before the game. Filled up on those so there was a lot of leftover pulled pork for me the next day!

    It was a smokin good day!

    Oh yeah....can't blame them for hittin' those app's.....I'd do a couple of those 'shrooms real quick, especially if I knew some crab was in there. Nice job on the japs.....I do mine in halves now since the japs are so big in the markets compared to the size they used to be. I've also found they lose some of their heat while in the smoker...the longer in, the milder they become IMO.......good job all around.....Willie

    i used 3 clusters of snow crab legs (they were on sale) listed at about 2 pounds in the shell and were already cooked.

    one 8 ounce container of plain whipped cream cheese.

    started with a cup of bread crumbs and a cup of the shredded cheddar/colby cheese and mixed it all together.

    i think i added more cheddar/colby and breadcrumbs to get the texture where it looked right.

    If you are using some kind of cookie gun to shoot the filling remember to chop everything (cheese and crab) up very fine before mixing.
