Step 1: Ingredients List
- 5 large Jalapeños
- 1 Pack of Bacon
- 1 container of cream cheese
- BBQ Rub
- BBQ Sauce (optional)
Step 2: Assemble Your ATB's
First you will need to prepare your ABT's using all the ingredients above. Start by slicing the Jalapeno in half and with a spoon cleaning out the seeds and membrane. Next you will fill the half Jalapeno with cream cheese. Make sure to fill it full. Next you are going to want to apply some of your bbq rub onto the cream cheese. Lastly you will need to wrap your stuffed jalapenos with one full slice of bacon. TIP: Make sure to wrap it firm, this will help it cook together and you won't have to use toothpicks.
Step 3: Place on the Grill
One your Atomic Buffalo Turds have been put together you will them place them onto your grill using indirect cooking with a tempreture of around 300-325 degrees. Place a small chunk of hardwood in for smoking (optional) and then close the lid and begin cooking for 1 hour 15 minutes.
Step 4: Remove From Grill
After 1hr 15 mins, your bacon wrapped jalapeños should be done. If you like your bacon more cooked feel free to leave them on for a few more minutes or until your preferred doneness. Let them cool for a few minutes to allow the cream cheese to cool a bit. Serve it up with your favourite BBQ Sauce, Ranch Dressing or blue cheese sauce and enjoy.
