Atomic Buffalo Turds, or “ABT’s”, are jalapeño peppers stuffed with magical goodness that are so freaking amazing, the first time you taste one it will make you want to slap yo mama (I’d resist that urge if I were you though…). Do not however resist the urge to make these ASAP if you’ve never had them. I’ve got ingredients, cooking instructions, pictures and a video below, so you really don’t have an excuse not to make them now that you’re reading this. Make some of your own then let me know in the comments below how they came out.
6-8 jalapeños (find the biggest ones you can from your local grocery store)
2 (8 oz) containers of cream cheese ( I use onion and chives)
1 package of “Lil Smokies” ( I prefer the all beef ones)
3-4 cups shredded sharp cheese
1 package of bacon (I prefer the thick cut)
Your favorite BBQ rub
This is gonna be quick because in the video below I show you exactly what to do. Cut the jalapeños in half and scoop the seeds and inner guts out. Now, in this order, fill with cream cheese, sprinkle with rub, press some shredded cheese down, press a Lil Smokey into it then wrap with 1/2 a piece of bacon and stick a toothpick through to secure it all. Get your kettle going and set up for an indirect cook. Try to keep the temp down if you can and slow smoke them with a nug of applewood or whatever smokewood you favor for about 1 1/2 hrs. These will be piping hot when you pull them off because of the cream cheese in the middle, so let them cool for 5-10 min. Enjoy!
