I have been wanting to make these with Goat cheese and Chorizo sausage.  Those look tasty as hell!

A lot of BBQ guys use chorizo, which I think would be an improvement.  I used Italian sausage because that's what I had.

Those look great! A complaint I've had about ABTs is the uncrisp bacon when cooking indirect in the low and slow range, but the bacon in this cook looks like it got crispy at least on the bottom thanks to direct heat. Nice!

Leftover pulled pork or beef or chopped brisket is good for ABTs as well.

To help with the bacon issue use thin rather than thick slice and I've read of folks parboiling the bacon for 4 minutes or baking in an oven on a cookie sheet for a few minutes before assembling the ABTs (not tried myself yet though).

The ABTs that didn't unravel all had the ends of the bacon tucked under, so the weight of the popper kept them from unrolling.

Direct heat definitely made a difference.  The bacon wasn't crispy, but it wasn't limp and soggy either.

Nice!  I love ABT's.  In fact, my wife accused me of making them too often.

Here are a couple of thoughts on ABT's

  • I agree with the suggestion to use thin rather than thick bacon
  • They taste pretty darned good with just cream cheese as a filling, although if you have the ingredients and the time adding to the filling is good too.
  • I've found that a 1lb pkg of Oscar Mayer bacon (usually) contains 18 slices of bacon.  So, if you buy 18 jalapenos and use half a strip of bacon per ABT it all comes out evenly (assuming you halve the jalapenos)
  • Liven up your ABT's by hitting them with your favorite BBQ rub before you put them on

Cheers,

Since you have the 1/2 jalapenos stuff with the cream cheese mixture, I don't guess you can flip them, right?

You mentioned this thread in another thread I made, here is a picture of my first ever journey into the world of BBQ on October 20th 2006 (ABTS and a pork picnic) the first time I ever made ABTS as well as the last time I took pictures of them, i have made them maybe 3-4 times since. you got me wanting to make some again. I like your wrapping them in bacon I know some that will wrap in bacon just around the top, others have custom made grates that hold a bunch this was my el-cheapo version.

I've done the chop-the-end-off-and-wrap-over-the-top version before, and I prefer the laydown version both because it's easier to type out and it doesn't require special equipment.  I think your low-buck version is pretty cool.  Makes me wish I'd thought of it before I burned out a uni-bit making a stainless steel version ages ago.

They are all good, though!  ABTs rule!

Funny this topic came up again.  I just did a load of ABT's & MOINK balls on Sunday afternoon.



I'm convinced anything wrapped in bacon and cooked on the BKCG is good!   Grin

Braddog,

What are MOINK balls?  I haven't heard of those...

Thanks R~B!  Other than ABT's (which I learned from you, thanks) The only other bacon wrapped thing I've done is pickled watermelon rind wrapped in bacon.  I got the recipe from the BGE eggtoberfest cookbook on there website.  They come out sort of like bacon candy...

I learned about ABTs, Moink balls, bacon explosions and such from the legions of BBQ wackos on the internet.  Apparently a lot of people like wrapping bacon around stuff.
