Recipe: Atomic Buffalo Turds – ABT

Atomic Buffalo Turds (ABT) are a favorite among BBQ buffs. This simple to prepare appetizer will sure be a hit with guests at you next get together.

What You’ll Need:

  • One dozen whole jalapenos
  • One 8oz container of cream cheese
  • Two dozen slices of thick cut bacon
  • BBQ rub [optional]
  • Toothpicks [optional]
  • Roasted diced New Mexico green chiles [optional]


  1. Put out the cream cheese to soften.
  2. Mash/mix the cream cheese in a bowl to add air and make it easier to stuff.
  3. Half the jalapenos leaving the stem.
  4. With a spoon scrape out the seeds and veins, then rinse with water.
  5. Fill each jalapeno half with cream cheese, making sure to not overfill past the rim.
  6. Starting at the bottom, wrap each stuffed jalapeno with bacon, add a toothpick to hold it together.
  7. Lightly dust with you favorite BBQ rub.
  8. Place ABT’s in the smoker till bacon is crisp (~250F). They can easily be done over indirect heat on a charcoal grill or in a oven. (Not recommended: you will lose that wonderful smokey flavor)
