Filet Mignon

What did you grill up on the 4th of July? The wife and I enjoyed filet mignon (beef tenderloin). It's not the usual burgers and hotdogs, but it sure was good.

Make Your Own BBQ Sauce? Why Not?

Editor's Qs

I have been reading about ABTs lately. But what does ABT stand for?

Actually ABT stands for Atomic Buffalo Turd.

No... not literally!

ABTs are appetizers made with jalapeño peppers, cream cheese, and bacon. There is no specific recipe for making them, since there are so many variations. But, this will give you an idea of how to put them together, so you can try them out.

Either cut the top off, or spit the jalapeños lengthwise and hollow them out. Fill them with cream cheese. Then wrap the stuffed jalapeños with a half piece of bacon secured in place with a toothpick. Grill or smoke until bacon is done.

There you have it. The quick version of how to make ABTs. Many people like to add a little smokie sausage into the cream cheese before wrapping it with bacon.

It is also very good with a piece of chicken, shrimp, or pork instead of the little smokie. I would recommend, though, that the meat you decide to stuff into the ABT be precooked. This will assure that it gets completely cooked by the time the bacon is done.

Experiment with seasoning like Ms. Dash, chives, or cayenne pepper (to make them really atomic) blended into the cream cheese. Use your imagination and have fun.

The Challenge Continues.

I don't want to give you the idea that I can't be stumped, but... let's see what happens.
