Default First shot at ABTs - Help Needed

I've got a T-Bone steak, red potatoes and ABTs planned for dinner on 22.5" Performer while my wife is out of town with the boys. Been searching, but have not found the "standard" for ABTs. Most results were for large quantities during competition and bacon wrapped. I'm going with simplest way to try these for the first time.
Mexican Cheese and maybe some diced up ham. Maybe they're just poppers without bacon?




Any info on prep, temp, and times would be appreciated. Thanks.

There really isn't a standard. I guess the basic ABT is a mix of cream cheese, another cheese and some meat, so you're heading in the right direction.

For prep, you can either make boats by cutting the jalapeño in half length-wise or use them whole. Boats are easier to clean out. Either way, the amount of the membrane that you leave in will dictate how how they are.

Cook time is really based on the bacon and getting the jalapeño cooked. Thicker bacon takes longer and the longer the jalapeño cooks the better they are for me.

I literally just put a batch on my 18.5wsm at 1300 of something similar. I halved them, scoped out the innards with a spoon, washed clean. Layed down thin chicken breast added rub, Mexican cheese, and wrapped with bacon. Then cut up kielbasa wrapped in bacon making a little cup, dripped in some agave honey and some brown sugar. Threw them on at 225, thinking about 2 hours but will check in another hour.

My favorite ABT is whipped cream cheese crushed Pineapple and chopped prosciutto wrapped in a thin cheap bacon like Bar "S".

It is the bacon that makes the ABT. In my opinion you gotta have the bacon!

My standard and our favorite is to cut the stem off...cut in half length ways....us a spoon to devain ....and fill with a mix of cream cheese, shredded cheese, rub, and blues hog. Wrap in thin bacon and put on kabbob s and 250 for about 1.75 hrs.

I REALLY like them with something sweet mixed into the cream cheese mixture. my favorite way to make them is cream cheese, mexican cheese and a fruit preserve. Then you put a little sliver of sausage in and wrap it all in bacon that has been partially cooked so that it comes out crispy.

Here is how I do them. I start out by cutting the tops off, I then remove the core & seeds (search Jalapeno corer on Amazon) and then cut them length wise.

For filling I use Laughing Cow Creamy Swiss wedges (1 wedge for every Jalapeno) and mix it with Green Onion & Bacon Crumbles to taste.



If my Jalapenos are large enough I add a cooked chicken tender strip (or Shrimp) and wrap with a strip of Bacon. (Toothpicks as required)


I cook them direct for about 5 to 10 minutes and then indirect for around 25 to 30 minutes depending on my grill temp. (Until Bacon is done)


Always a big hit.

I clean my jalapenos like DerHusker, but a similar vegetable/fruit peeler works as well as a "Jalapeno corer".

My go-to filling is cream cheese mixed with shredded Mexican blend cheese with some BBQ sauce mixed in for some sweetness. I've added red pepper jelly as well.

The great thing about ABTs is you can fill them with whatever you like.
