Atomic Buffalo Turds are also known simply at ABT's. ABT's provide a simple-to-make, tasty-to-eat, good-to-look-at treat for backyard pool parties and other similar events. I made ABT's for lunch today.
There are several different versions of ABT's made with peppers. Some versions use cream cheese. Other versions use crumbled up breakfast sausage (pre-cooked of course). Another version that I've made in the past, uses a technique that results in more of a stuffed ABT. The version I made today combined cheddar cheese, little smokies, and good 'ole bacon with traditional jalapenos. If you'd prefer a little less heat, ABT's can also be made from poblano's. If you use poblano's, a stuffed technique with breakfast sausage would work well. (Remember to cook the sausage first.)
|Start with a handful of jalepeno's and wash thoroughly|
|Cut the jalepeno's length wise and scrape out the seeds and ribs|
|You can leave the seeds and ribs inside, but you'll end up with eye-watering ABT's|
|I like to use cheddar cheese and little smokies|
|Wrap tightly with thin sliced bacon and secure with a tooth pick|
|Place on indirect heat on a smoker or grill at 375 degrees |
|Cook them for 45 - 50 minutes. Brush them lightly with your favorite bbq sauce.|
: Don't let the bacon grease drip onto your fire. It will cause flare-ups or in some cases a fire that ruins your meal.
