Atomic Buffalo Turds (ABT's)

I decided to cook ABT's on my classic Joe. These are very good and extremely popular appetizer to make on the BBQ. Beware that ABT's are extremely addictive!

ABT's stands for Atomic Buffalo Treats or Atomic Buffalo Turds if you ever wondered what the full name for them was. These are pretty simple to make on any Joe.

Remember always use Nitrile gloves when making ABT's. The reason you want to wear them is due to the fact that jalapenos contains capsaicin which can burn sensitive area of your skin. Washing hands sometime never gets it all off. This I why I strongly recommend using gloves for making these! 

Ingredients
  


 ·        1 dozen large fresh jalapenos
 ·             16 ounces cream cheese, softened
 ·             1½ TSP of Dizzy Pig Dizzy Dust (if you want more kick to them use Dizzy Swamp Venom rub)              or your favorite rub
 ·             Italian sausages grounded up or little/mini sausages (optional)
 ·             1 pound bacon


Directions

1.    Cut the jalapenos in half lengthwise and scrape out the seeds and veins with a spoon and place the Jalapenos half in a bowl of water. This will help keep the fumes of the Jalapenos down so they won’t irritate your eyes, nose & throat.


2.    Stir the seasoning into the cream cheese.


3.    Now stuff your jalapeno halves with the cream cheese mixture.


4.    You can now put a layer of the ground up sausages or place a mini sausage on top of the cream cheese mixture.


5.    Cut the bacon slab down the middle, so each slice is divided in half.


6.    Now for the fun part wrap each jalapeno with a half-slice of bacon. You can also sprinkle with additional seasoning for more flavoring.





7.    For cooking these ABTS a important point to remember is that the higher temp and faster you cook them the bigger the kick you get out of them ( the more spicy they get). But if you cook them low and slow they will be mild and the spiciness won't be overwhelming which makes them perfect for the kids to eat!

8.    Pre-heat your Joe to 250-275 degrees Fahrenheit for indirect cooking. Kamado Joe users you want your stone of the heat deflector in the bottom position. 

I wrapped the stone with Foil to protect it from the Bacon grease.


9.    I usually like to smoke them a little while they cook with a little apple or maple wood chunks but this is optional.


10.Cook for 1 to 1½ hours, or until the bacon is crispy to your satisfactions.



These are amazing treats to make on the BBQ. You can also stuff them with some left over pull pork seasoned with some Dizzy Pig RedEye Express or your favorite rub. As you can see there's so many ways you can make these ABT's. You can also use your homemade or favorite rubs in them.


Bonne app├ętit and Happy Grilling!
