    So I'm not a huge fan of Jalapenos, never loved the flavor I guess, but I'm a huge fan of stuffed Anaheim's so I decided to make my own version of ABTs.

    Cream cheese stuffing:

    Carmelize some finely chopped red onions, throw in a chopped up garlic clove and a bunch of your favorite herbs/spices in the last ten minutes or so. I used oregano, thyme, crushed red pepper, and salt/pepper.

    When it's all ready, I tossed in my cream cheese in the pan while it was still hot so the cream cheese was soft enough to use in my make-shift piping bag (a zip-lock bag with the corner cut off) and then filled my Anaheim peppers that I had previously gutted of seeds and such. Wrapped them in partially cooked bacon, stuck a toothpick through the top to keep all the wonderful stuff inside and tossed them on the smoker for 2 hours. Temperature was between 225 and 250. They turned out delicious! They were whole, but I had a half of a pepper lying around that I cut into little "boats" that I filled up and placed a piece of bacon on top - also turned out delicious.

    The Anaheim peppers are a bit milder than Jalapenos, but they still have a kick to them and the filling was flavorful and creamy! Bacon cooked just right. I was very happy with my first go at ABTs.

    The little guys are Dave's poker night pork shots - frickin awesome.

    Nice suggestion on the anaheim. Jalapeno ABT's are like russian roulette to me. I'll give your suggestion a try, along with Kat's suggestion of using the mini-sweet peppers next time.

    Great looking ABT's and q-view!

    Stuff those bad boys with some pulled pork in the mix next time! Makes and awesome addition to ABT's Another off the wall filling that we like to use is tuna. Sounds weird, but it's really good!
