The guys here at Country Bob's wanted Smoked Jalapeno Poppers or ABT’s (Atomic Buffalo Turds) as they are referred to in the BBQ world. So we threw some on the Smokin Brothers Pellet Grill for lunch.

Smoked Jalapeno Poppers

 10 jalapeno peppers (Halved)
 10 bacon slices, cut in half
 10 smokies (if desired)
 1 cup cream cheese
 1 cup grated of your favorite cheese (we used 4 cheese Mexican blend)
 1 tsp chipotle or chili powder

Slice the jalapenos lengthwise. Using a spoon, remove the seeds and membrane.


Mix the cream cheese, shredded cheese, and chili powder. Fill the hollowed out portion of the peppers with the cheese mixture.


Place the smokie on top of the cream cheese. Wrap the half slice of bacon around the jalapeno. If the bacon is not staying tightly wrapped, it may be necessary to use a toothpick to hold it in place.


Have your pellet grill set to 225F and put the ABT' on for 2-3 hours, or until the bacon is browned.

To cook on the grill:

Cook on a medium heat grill until the jalapeno is tender and the bacon is browned. Keep the lid covered while cooking.

To cook in the oven:

Bake the ABT's in the oven, set at 425F, for 20-30 minutes or until the bacon is browned.
