Smoked Atomic Buffalo Turns (ABTís)
« on: June 03, 2015, 01:01:02 PM »
Since I have never made ABT's before I though I would make some tonight. The plan is to have them for appetizers and then share a few with my friends next door. I plan to put them in around 2:00 and pull out around 4:00 this afternoon.

Smoked Atomic Buffalo Turns (ABTís)
Ingredients
8 oz. cream cheese
2 oz. grated cheddar cheese
Ĺ hotdog cutup long way (8 slices)
ľ t. garlic powder
Ĺ t. Sriracha sauce
3 Jalapeno peppers sliced long way, seeds removed
4 mini sweet peppers sliced long way, seeds removed
1 lb. bacon
BBQ spice (whatever you like)
Wood
2 oz. wine barrel oak chunks

Directions
In a bowl mix cream cheese, cheddar cheese, garlic powder and Sriracha sauce. Add hotdog slices to a few of the peppers, fill with cheese mixture. Wrap the peppers in bacon, secure with a toothpick and then sprinkle on BBQ spice.
Place in smoker on the upper racks and set smoker to 250 degrees, smoke for 2 hours.

*Note I had enough for about 2ó3 more Jalapenos

They turned out really great, the spice level was perfect. Next time I will skip the hotdog in the ones I did, but they still tasted good.

Hi Greg,

I've tried making ABT's a few times, and I've never been happy with the results.  I think a lot of has to do with the bacon.  When I pull them out of the smoker, the bacon is not as well done as I like (like my bacon crispy not chewy). 

FYI, the recipe I followed called for lil smokies instead of hot dogs.  Here is the recipe I've tried:

Ingredients
ē 10 jalapeno peppers
ē 10 bacon slices, cut in half
ē 10 mini sausages or smokies (or 20 if they are very small)
ē 1 cup cream cheese
ē 1 cup grated monterey jack
ē 1 tsp chipotle or chili powder
ē 2 shallots, minced

Instructions
   1. Slice the jalapenos lengthwise. Using a spoon, remove the seeds and membrane. If using bell peppers, quarter them after they are seeded.
   2. Mix the cream cheese, monterey jack, chipotle powder and minced shallots. Fill the hollowed out portion of the peppers with the cheese mixture.
   3. Place the smokie on top of the cream cheese. Wrap the half slice of bacon around the jalapeno. If the bacon is not staying tightly wrapped, it may be necessary to use a toothpick to hold it in place.
   4. Smoke the ABTs in the smoker, set at 225F, for 2-3 hours, or until the bacon is browned

gmr3, I have good luck cutting my bacon and then placing it in the microwave for a minute or 2.  If I get the bacon warmed and translucent, I can still wrap with it and I get a crisp end result.
