Delightful little mouth-fulls of spicy smoky goodness. Jalapeño... good, Cheese... good, Bacon...Good,'nuff said


  • 1/4 cup Velveeta
  • 1/4 cup Sharp Cheddar (Shredded)
  • 3 cloves Garlic (Roasted)
  • 2 heaped teaspoons Dry Rub (we use SRQ Butt Rub)
  • 24 "Smokey" Mini Cocktail Sausages
  • 1/4 cup Cream Cheese
  • 1 - 2lb Maple Bacon (cut in half)
  • 12 Jalapenos (Cored & stems trimmed)


Replacing the Smokey's with some left over brisket, rib, chicken or pulled pork works a treat.  You can nix the Smokey altogether if that's how you roll.


Step 1.
Cut the stem off the jalapeños and remove seed from inside.
Step 2.
Cut jalapeño in half width wise creating a tube and a tip, then cut the tip lengthwise creating 2 "small canoes" (you can simply cut them in half and omit the tube. We do it this way so we can use the jalapeno tube to make 'Dillo and kill 2 birds with 1 stone).
Step 3.
Cut bacon in half creating approximately 3" strips
Step 4.
In a large bowl, mix together all remaining ingredients to make a smooth cheese paste
Step 5.
Scoop a generous amount of cheese mixture into each jalapeno canoe
Step 6.
place a "Smokey" in the centre of each canoe and press gently to nest into the cheese.
Step 7.
Take two (2) 1/2 strips of bacon for each ABT and lay them on a cutting board in the form or a "+" as an "x" obviously won't work.
Put a stuffed jalapeño canoe in the centre of each "+" and wrap the bacon so it meets in the centre on top.
Skewer the ABT with a toothpick to keep the bacon from peeling back.
Step 8.
Place on smoker at 225 degrees F for 2 hours.
