    So after reading these threads I decided what the heck I will throw together my attempt at an ABT. I used the japs soaked in sprite for about 45 min hopefully it was long enough. For the filling I used mild ITalian sausage,whipped cream cheese and 6 blend italian shredded cheese. Wrapped in bacon and now smoking using cherry and pecan wood.

    I've never soaked mine in sprite.  Let me know how they turn out...

    Will do bear. I had to soak them to cut the heat but I don't know if it was long enough. We'll see.

    The finished product. Just a taste of spice nothing more and got rave reviews. I keep this up I will be catering everywhere we go. The pink one was broiled a bit longer. It wasn't done done because I hid that one under a slice of leftover bacon.

    It was really good. Missed a little more something. Not quite sure what maybe just a hint more heat.

    Taking out the seeds and ribs takes out most of the heat and leaves you with a somewhat spicey ABT. I have not heard of soaking in sprite, but it doesn't hurt to try new things!

    My last batch of ABT's I soaked half in sprite overnite & we thought it calmed them down some. I soaked half for the fam as they don't like spicy....

    BTW, nice lookin ABT's Pat !

    Thanks! The Sprite worked I left a few unsoaked for the people who can handle heat and they said they had the right amount of heat. The soaked had very little to no heat at all.

    Tasty looking ABT's! We love the heat but have friends that don't. I won't do the sprite soak, so I just buy the mini bell peppers. They work great and add a bit of color to the mix.

    Made a second batch on NYE and this time I tweaked the filling I added garlic powder and italian seasoning mix and a few dashes of hot sauce. Was much better the second time around, the first time although good it was a little flat.
