Stuffed Jalapeno Firecrackers

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2011
This recipe is good, but can be significantly improved with a couple of simple changes. After filling the jalapeno with cream cheese, place some seasoned pulled pork on top of the cream cheese layer. The amount of pulled pork should be enough to make the jalapeno look like a complete pepper, generally about an ounce. Then wrap with the strip of bacon. Rather than using cajun spice, use a general purpose BBQ rub (like Mike Mills Magic Dust) that will be less salty as the bacon doesn't really need more salt. Bake (or hot smoke) at 350 rather than broil. It'll take at least 45 minutes for the bacon to cook sufficiently and for the capsicum in the pepper to break down so they aren't too spicy. These are commonly known in competitive BBQ circles as ABT's. Try them this way just once, you'll love the results.
