Author: BMerrill

Prep Time: 30 minutes
Cook Time: 120 minutes
Difficulty Rating: 1/5
Ingredients:
  • 20 JalapeƱos, 3" length
  • 1 16 oz package Cream Cheese at room temp
  • 4 ounce(s) Crushed pineapple, drained
  • 1/2 Minced Onion, medium
  • 2 tablespoon(s) Texas BBQ Rub or your favorite
  • 1 pound(s) Package of Bacon cut in half crosswise
  • 1 1 package of Lil' Smokie cocktail franks

Preperation Steps
  • Preheat your Traeger Grill to 275°, clean the grates.
  • Cut the caps off the Jalapeños, split lenght wise, remove the seeds and the ribs. Rinse under cool water and drain.
  • Mix the room temp cream cheese, drained crushed pineapple,finely minced onion and the rub together in a bowl.
  • For transporting the ABT's to the Traeger I like using a Frogmat. This is a 1/4" grid cooking screen made of heat resistant silicone over nylon. Place the Frogmat on a 1/2 size sheet pan.
  • Assembly: Fill each 1/2 of the Jalapeno with the cream cheese mixture about even with the top. Place a Lil' Smokie on the cream cheese and wrap with 1/2 slice of bacon. Insert a toothpick thru the top to hold the ABT together. Place on the Frogmat or sheet pan.
  • Place the Frogmat or each of the ABT's on the grill grates keeping then a minimum of 2" from the front and back of the grill.
  • Cooking time is about 1 hour and 30 minutes. Rotate half way thru the cook. Adjust time if cooking with other foods or at a different temperture. The ABT's are done when the bacon is near the crisp stage.
  • Comment: The Jalapenos will not have much heat after cooking. Most of the heat is in the seeds and ribs that were removed.
