Hardwood Mesquite

This classic BBQ recipe is wrapped with smokin’ pork deliciousness. Wood-fired bacon-wrapped jalapeño poppers are seasoned with Pork & Poultry Rub and baked over smoky mesquite for an epic game day appetizer.


12 medium Jalapeños

6 slices bacon, cut in half

8 oz Cream Cheese, Softened

1 cup Cheese, Grated

2 Tbsp Traeger Pork & Poultry Rub


When ready to cook, set temperature to 180℉ and preheat, lid closed for 15 minutes.

Slice the jalapeños in half lengthwise. Scrape out any seeds and ribs with a small spoon or paring knife.

Mix softened cream cheese with Traeger Pork & Poultry rub and grated cheese.

Spoon mixture onto each jalapeño half. Wrap with bacon and secure with a toothpick.

Place the jalapeños on a rimmed baking sheet. Place on grill and smoke for 30 minutes.

Increase the grill temperature to 375℉ and cook an additional 30 minutes or until bacon is cooked to desired doneness. Serve warm, enjoy!
