I like mine halved, and stuffed with cream cheese w/ a little bit of my sweeter rub, and a small cube of sharp cheddar inside. Put the 2 halves together, wrap in one slice of thin bacon.
Instead of using a tooth pic to hold it together, I use bamboo Skewers. I put about 6 on each skewer, and then put a skewer through the end ABT's (perpendicular), holding bout 3 rows together.
This makes it's own stand, holding the ABT's upright so that none of the cheese leaks out.
