ABT's ----- Pepper preparation question
« on: April 04, 2009, 12:29:47 PM »
When making the ABT's, do you parboil the cleaned out jalapeno peppers or just wash them with water before filling.  Somehow I would think that parboiling would make the pepper softer when finished.

Working now in preparing a batch so someone let me know ASAP what you think.

I have never parboiled them and I can't recall hearing anybody else doing it either to my knowledge.

Hopefully some others will chime in too.

I'm HOOKED on ABT'S!  I made a batch of 18 that I was going to split in half and take to a Sunday School social tomorrow morning and after I sat and ate 10 of them I ended up going back to store and buying 20 more jalapenos and made a second batch.

Man.....are those things addictive!!!!  Second batch I put some of the seeds in a grinder and pulverized them and then added back to the mixture of hamburger meat and cream cheese.  Hopefully they will have a little more FIRE than the first batch that I cleaned out and washed thoroughly!

BTW, did NOT parpoil peppers first.

I never boil them either, would probably remove too much heat, not that penos have much heat to begin with.  ;D

Check out my pictures in the meat topic under "boys weekend" and check out my ABT's and other goodies.
I do not preboil anything that goes into the smoker. IMHO, it would take out the good taste.

If you want some heat with the stuffed peppers, make some ADT's, Atomic Dragon Turds. Make them the same way but use habeneros instead of jalapenos. Or you can chop up a hab and mix some in with the cheese/meat stuffing in the peno.

Seriously.  That's just nuts. 

How do you all normally get the bacon to crisp up?  Mine came out and the bacon wasn't nearly as crisp as i wanted it.

Not nuts it's and adrenaline rush. Mine are usually in there for 2-3 hours bacon never gets real crispy but I like soft bacon. Some finish in the Big easy or put under a broiler for a couple of minutes and last but not least you can finish on the grill with indirect heat.

I use Char Broil's The Big Easy (TBE). It's like a stationary, high temp rotisserie.  Lots of threads and info both here and on their website and forum.

I pull mine out of the smoker when they hit around 150deg IT. Then I put them on a wire rack that fits inside a sheet pan and into a 300-350deg oven they go until IT hits 165deg ;D

For the other side of the temperature range...how 'bout some Pablanos.  You got to try these.  I make a small "T" cut and gently clean them out so not to tear the pepper...then cram them full with what ever.  To eat six of is nothing.
