Billy’s Bacon-Wrapped Jalapeno Poppers

Ingredients.

  • Jalapeños
  • Bacon
  • Cheese (gouda or cheddar)

 

Tools. 

A good fire-cook knows the crowd always arrive hungry, a solid appetizer is in order.  How about some grilled fruit?  Billy’s favorite is bacon-wrapped jalapeno poppers.

 

Prep. 

The work involved in making bacon-wrapped jalapeno poppers is all in the prep.  Plan on accommodating the crowd with at least two poppers each.

Fetch some kitchen gloves for handling this many jalapenos, start by cutting off the stem and slicing the jalapeno in half lengthwise, remove the guts (seeds).  Billy likes smoked gouda or cheddar cheese for the filling – cut the cheese into little sticks that will fit into the jalapeño.

Grab some quality bacon and cut the strips in half, wrap gently around the jalapeno pepper and cheese filling and secure with a toothpick – ready, set, go.

 

Fire.

Go build a big ol’ smokin’ hot fire, shoot for about 350 degrees.

 

Cook. 

This is the appetizer, don’t wait for a perfect fire.  Place the bacon-wrapped jalapeno poppers for indirect heat; bathe those lil’ rascals in smoke for about fifteen minutes.  the eager crowd awaits.
