    Alright friends..my beloved Gamecocks are on a bye week and I have the weekend off! Can't think of anything better to do than smoke a butt.

    Also thinking of trying my hand at some ABT'S. Any advice or tips on making them?
     
  2. It should be good. As for the ABT's use any filling you like. I kick the heat up at the end to crisp up the bacon.

    Happy smoken.

    For the ABTs check Jeffs page at the bottom he has a section on them.

    You can vary the filling on them.

    I usually make a few different types of ABT at once.  One of the ones I like best I use a horseradish white cheddar cheese.  Try different things and see what your crew likes

    One thing about the ABT's.....make plenty, they go fast. Japs are getting so big now I slice in half lengthwise, stuff and wrap in the bacon. In the smoker is fine but they obviously take longer than on a grill. Hmmmm, I'm thinking a couple hours to get right. And, the longer in the smoker the less the heat IMO......have fun, enjoy them ABT's.....Willie

    Use thin cut bacon! BTW, I live in Spartanburg.

    So I settled on trying the ABT'S using cream cheese mixed with cheddar cheese. Gonna add some smokies and wrap em with bacon. Gonna sprinkle the cheese mixture with some of my rub.
