Default 1st ABTs

So Iím going to do my first ABTs. They will be going on the WSM on Saturday around noon time.
My question is this.
Can they be prepared the night before, or should they go on right after being put together?

not a problem making them ahead of time-throw em into the fridge ovenight and cook them tomorrow-the last batch I made I even froze a half dozen to see what would happen to them- they stayed in the freezer for about 3 weeks, took them out and threw them on the cooker frozen- came out good- the only thing about freezing peppers is they are a little soft when they thaw- fresh is always best, but I would make a bunch again and freeze some for a later date- just pop them on the smoker and no prep time involved

I make them the night before most of the time. Lay 'em out on a baking sheet, cover with Saran wrap & put in the fridge.

Definitely make a whole bunch the day before, then make more on the day. That way you might just have enough.

Yep, make plenty, cuz even folks who claim to not like jalapenos like ABTs.

My most humble apology. ABTs are prepped and ready for a noon time meeting with some smoke.

Yeah what's up with that? Sounds a little strange to me. Can "FFF" status be revoked?

I can relate to that question... You've got to love this place.

Be sure to dust the tops with rub. I made the mistake once and didn't add rub to the stuffing mixture. They came out bland. But I really like seasoning the bacon. Remember, if no pics, it didn't happen.

Dam Rick, you can count the individual specks of rub in that first picture. Your photo talnet is only surpassed by your cookin.

Good luck Nonthink on your second WSM smoke.
