    I have been promising some co-workers the flavorful peppers after I teased them with a batch a few months ago. Japs were pretty good size and I found some sweet peppers that I bought to throw in for some added color (they're the one's that aren't green).

    The filling is made of cream cheese, bacon crumbles, minced garlic (about 5 cloves), and a shredded mexican cheese blend.

    They turned out well and I didn't mind feeding Lala a few sticks to get 'em done. Cooked them until the bacon was crisp and total smoke time was around 2 hours. Peppers were soft, but a bit crunchy which were nice.











    Thanks for checking out my q!

    Nice looking peppers. They look even better when you got them smoked![​IMG] I would take 6 or 8 of them.

    As always, thanks for the compliments from those that have posted. ABTs are fun to make and I did enjoy the color variation with the sweet peppers. Lala is definitely a happy girl!

    I have to make some ABT's as an appetiser in a pot luck Mrs. Big Steve and I will be going to next week. I think I'm going to halve them, and cover them with just a small piece of Bacon like the OP did. I like them just fine wrapped in a whole slice, but they look more presentable the way the OP did them. Also, so many folks are petrified of Bacon these days, one small piece to cover a half a pepper might not scare them so much.

    Thanks for the Pics!

    If I did that I may be part of the divorce statistic [​IMG] although an invite to my house is always out there!

    I saw you do that on some of your prior abt smokes, Tip. I will be trying that soon to see how they taste.

    Yes, I definitely wore gloves!! After seeding japs for the first time without gloves (and being a chronic nail biter) I learned my lesson fast!!

    Thanks for all the nice comments, folks!! [​IMG]
