Default abt whole or sliced in half?

Normally when i made abt's i would cut top jalapeno, core out, stuff with cream cheese mixture and mini hotdog then wrap in bacon. Then throw it in jalapeno holder rack thing onto grill.

I have also seen people slice the jalapenos in half and lay them stuffed on the racks on there back.

Whats everyones preference?

Just depends on volume people want to consume in a bite and also the texture of a whole vs half. I definitely like both, but probably the halves a bit more. Easier (relatively speaking) to stuff, I like that ratio a bit more most of the time and the way the internal ingredients heat up/cook vs being fully wrapped by an entire Jalapeno.

I've also backed down my use of cream cheese and don't stuff as full since I like other things like regular cheese and meats in the mix to stand out. I've definitely had some "cream cheese" heavy ones served and I just like a lower ratio.

Also in serving folks I've found people like smaller bites in general. So I almost never serve hamburger buns (it might be years) with pork or other products and opt for smaller rolls like Hawaiian or even small tortillas. People don't feel like they have to take a whole sandwich. Oddly people probably end up eating the same as it seems like 3-4 hawaiian rolls isn't the same as 1 sandwich .

I've always ran with halves. Never tried them whole.

I don't want to mess with racks and I can make lots of them in pretty short order.

I have to make a ton when I do them, my family's favorite is using the mixture of my deep fried sauerkraut balls without the sauerkraut.

It's a mixture of cooked pork sausage, cream cheese, yellow mustard, diced onion and some granulated garlic and topped with sharp cheddar.

halves here- all the way. and I try to get the ones that are just right- not too big/ not too small. I aim for 1/2 strip of (partially cooked) bacon to go around it - tucked not pinned. easy on the cream cheese with a bit of browned italian sausage and shredded cheddar mixed in plus a touch of what ever bbq seasoning I have.

I just ate- why am I hungry again?

I've never tried halves, I guess I'd better step up and see what I'm missing.

We are hot-spice wussies, so halved it is. Every time I bite into one of the whole-pepper ones I end up screaming like a six year old girl....it's just embarrassing!

Never thought to partially cook the bacon. Will try that next time I make some. Probably helps get a crispy bacon without over cooking the pepper.

I like to half them and be sure to remove all the white parts inside. Keeps them on the mild side. The stuffing is usually a mix of cream cheese and leftover bbq meat (most often pulled pork or brisket). For the bacon thinner is better, half slice per abt.
