    I dont have a bakers bag (or whatever you call them) and stuffing ABTs can get messy doing it with your fingers. So what I figured out is use Cheese Sticks. They now come in a lot of varieties so you can usually find the cheese your looking for. My last batch came out good and wasnt much of a mess.

    Just take a "zip" bag
    fill it with your stuffing
    get as much air out as possible
    Seal top
    work material down into a corner of the bag
    Snip the corner off of the bag
    use to squeeze filling into your ABT's or whatever.

    Good Luck

    And on a side note the baker's bag thing, is called a piping bag.

    One of the main reasons I cut my jalapenos length wise (to form canoes) is so I can stuff them easier.

    I simply use a teaspoon and "scrape" the cheese mixture into the pepper.

    The zip-top bag with a corner cut off is also a good idea.

    I agree. I used to core them but never again. So much easier to cut them lengthwise. I think you can load them with more filling this way too!

    When I use my bakers bag to fill them, I tilt my pinkie finger just seems more civilized that way hehehehe :)

    I am going to stuff some Poblano's this weekend...Quite a bit bigger, but I think the taste will keep with them! And they are mild enough that the wife will eat them...

    excellent suggestion! I will use it for those times I'm too lazy to pipe the filling from the bag. Points for you!

    I used the end of my wifes metal ice cream scoop to stuff the good into the pepper. fit perfect, I will try the zip lock bag trick next time.

    I vote Boat! Lots more filling per pepper. Also, you don't need a contraption to hold them up, just line them up on the grates. They also seem easier to clean this way.

    i use a frosting gun for filling mine. it looks like a caulking gun. i found it in the wifes baking supplies. its made by wilton and runs about $15. it works better than any thing else ive tried. i mean, it looks like a caulking gun how could it not work? maybe they make one that i can connect to the compressor[​IMG]

    Hard to use a pipin bag for hard cheeses but it does work great for the soft fillings.

    I'm a traditionalist and still like them upright in a chili grill.
