Notes from Grilling 24X7
  1. Today I was smoking baby back ribs on my new Weber Smokey Mountain so I had the ribs on the top grate and placed these little stuffed jalapeno peppers on the bottom grate. I left the peppers on the smoker for about 2.5 hours. I think they were done at 1.5 hours but my guests weren't here yet so I kept them on for an extra hour. It is hard to overcook things on a 225 degree smoker so it worked out quite well. I used typical low and slow smoking temperatures around 225-250 degrees for the peppers. They are finished when the bacon looks like cooked bacon and the cheese has melted.
  2. I am sure this could be performed on a standard charcoal grill. Just set up indirect heat with a low/medium heat and place the peppers on the grill. Add a few wood chips to get some smoke in there and cook until the bacon looks like edible bacon. They key is to keep a low heat and take them off when the bacon looks cooked.

The journey down the bacon paved path began with a Valentine Bake Sale at work. Bacon Roses, Bacon Chocolates; and the deluge of Bacon Recipes began. So. Gotta blog all these good bacon scrumptiousnesses and this is just the beginning. The plan is to update the Geeky Food Blog with new recipes and articles of interest.
